The Language of Love and Respect:

Cracking the Communication Code 

with Your Mate


A Revolutionary Solution to the #1 Marriage Problem.

Why  does communication between couples remain the number one  marriage issue? “Because,” says Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, “most spouses  don’t know that they speak two different languages. They are sending  each other messages in ‘code,’ but they won’t crack that code until they  see that she listens to hear the language of love and he listens to  hear the language of respect.”

Dr. Eggerichs’ best-selling  book, Love & Respect, launched a revolution in how couples relate  to each other. In The Language of Love & Respect, he presents a  practical, step-by-step approach for how husbands and wives can learn to  speak each other’s distinctly different language—respect for him, love  for her. The result is mutual understanding and a successful, happy  marriage.

Love & Respect:

 

The Love She Most Desires;  The Respect He Desperately Needs


Dr.  Emerson Eggerichs' book, Love & Respect: The Love She Most Desires,  the Respect He Desperately Needs, is based on the biblical passage from  Ephesians 5:33 (But every husband must love his wife as he loves  himself, and wives should respect their husbands - GODS WORD®  translation). His premise is that communication between a husband and  wife is often frustrated because of the vastly different ways in which  men and women perceive love. Women are wired to need unconditional love  and men need to feel unconditionally respected. Revitalize the love in  your marriage! A Focus on the Family Recommendation; hardcover.

Story Behind the Book

“The  concept for this book was born at five o’clock in the morning as I was  working out,” says Connie. “To keep myself awake, I thought about what  Nancy and I should write to follow The Politically Incorrect Wife .  ‘What’s a topic that almost every married woman in America is interested  in?’ I asked myself. Almost instantly, the answer came: How to get your  husband to talk to you. Thus began a lot of reading, researching,  surveying, and practicing. We were surprised time and again at what  worked, and what didn’t! We think you will be as well.” 

How to Get Your Husband to Listen to You:

You talk for thirty minutes, telling him every detail of your day. He has three great ideas for how to fix your problems.

“Why can’t you just listen to me?” you ask. You pull back, he gives up, and your marriage suffers.

The Respect Dare:

40 Days to a Deeper Connection 

with God and Your Husband


“A long and happy marriage.” It sounds like the end of a fairy tale—an illusion that modern times have exposed.

And  it is, if marriage depends on a constant stream of romantic emotion, or  even on copious amounts of time or money. Thank the Lord, none of those  are necessary. Two thousand years ago, Paul gave women the key to a  successful marriage, and it can be summed up in two words: unconditional  respect. It’s not popular. It doesn’t sound fair. It can be hard to  imagine.

But it works.

Nina Roesner has led countless  women through this practical and life-changing journey, and in The  Respect Dare she offers you the hope that so many others have found. Day  by day, true stories and thought-provoking questions will help you  apply biblical wisdom to the most important relationship in your life.  The book is filled with stories of struggle and success, and many  practical applications of respect that have dramatically impacted  marriages.Give it forty days. Experience the intimacy God intended and  discover what he can do in your heart and in your marriage when you  choose to show respect his way

The Politically Incorrect Wife:

 

God's Plan for Marriage Still Works Today


Just  what is a politically incorrect wife? She is a woman who is married to  her husband and not to popular American culture. The politically  incorrect wife does not buy into the stifling modern-day thinking that  says, "Look out for number one. Treat your husband no better than he  treats you." Instead, she cultivates a joyful marriage using  transformational spiritual principles. As formerly politically correct  wives with miserable marriages, popular speakers and authors Nancy Cobb  and Connie Grigsby lead readers confidently beyond the picket lines of  the politically correct -- into a warm, rewarding marriage.
