Bonus Day: Books I’ve Loved Recently (AND a chance to WIN!)

Taking a break from our “29 Days of Love” to tell you about some books that I’ve read recently and loved.  As a book lover, pretty much the best gift someone could get me for, say, Valentine’s Day, is a book.  Or a Kindle gift card.  So, I figured if any of you are married to book lovers out there, you’d maybe want some recommendations.  So here you go:

1.  FOR HIM (okay, AND for you): The Love & Respect Experience

I think most people have at least heard of Eggerich’s Love and Respect books by now… I’ve read most of them.  But Eggerich’s latest book– a devotional that he claims is “the husband friendly book that wives truly love”– is different because it’s formatted in a way that makes it feel doable.  Plus, the lessons and descriptions of Eggerich’s Love & Respect principles are really short, sweet and easily understandable.   Do you see why guys love it?

2.  For HER: Into the Free

My friend Julie Cantrell’s debut novel is fantastic.  It’s a beautifully–almost poetically– written story that will capture your heart from the outset.  Captivating, descriptive and emotional, this novel is one of those spend-a-Saturday-afternoon-curled-up-on-the-couch type of reads.



3.  For HER:  The What’s for Dinner Project

I love Kathi Lipp.  She just gets me.  She knows I’m busy.  She knows it’s hard for young parents to stay connected in their marriages.  She knows it feels impossible for young moms to even imagine dreaming for themselves.  And, she even knows how frantic I feel at dinnertime.  Anyway, this book is full of simple, fun tips to make dinner easy.  My favorite?  She explains how to have a freezer exchange and load your freezer up with ready-to-cook meals.  I did it with my sisters last week and now I have tons of grab-and-pop-in-the-oven dishes for those frantic weeknights.

AND now, a chance to WIN: Reply to this post and tell me which of these books you’d like to read and I’ll draw one lucky winner and buy it for you.
