Recent Reads: Marriage- Small Steps, Big Rewards

The Catholic Company
Marriage - Small Steps, Big Rewards by Dr. Raymond N. Guarendi  is a common sense approach to marriage.   It's not a book written just for those who might feel their relationship needs help, but rather, a book for any married person interested in strengthening their relationship.

Each chapter includes one task to do, a list of reasons/excuses why you won't want to do it, and some examples of how it works.  I enjoyed the "excuses" part, especially since several times I was thinking of exactly those same things.  :)

The tasks are small things, like saying that you're sorry to your spouse more often, rather than just overlooking small slights and assuming that things are fine.  That particular point stuck with me more than the other chapters. After a long time together (18+ years in our case), it's easy to overlook this small gesture.  I'm trying to be more conscious of this now. 

I plan to give my copy of this book to one of my younger sisters who will be married in June. I think there are some interesting points there, and some things to consider, as she and her fiance begin their married lives together.

This review was written as part of the Catholic book reviewer program from The Catholic Company. I received a free copy of the book in return for publishing my honest review here.  Visit The Catholic Company to find more information on Marriage - Small Steps, Big Rewards. They are also a great source for a Catechism of the Catholic Church or a Catholic Bible.

  1. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the review! It sounds similar to the book The Love Dare. Are you familiar? Is it similar?
