Making Marriage Beautiful by Dorothy Littell Greco

Making Marriage Beautiful
by Dorothy Littell Greco   
David C. Cook

What makes a marriage beautiful? Honesty? Compatibility? Physical and emotional intimacy? All of these are important, but there's one component that determines the quality and longevity of a marriage more than anything else: a willingness to grow.
Because a wedding joins together two imperfect people, all couples experience disappointment, conflict, and pain. How husbands and wives respond to these challenges determines the kind of people they will become and the kind of marriage they will have.
Making Marriage Beautiful reveals how the pursuit of Christ results in profound transformation for both the individual and the marriage. Rather than offering clichés and formulas, Greco relies on candor, humor, and real life stories to bring encouragement and wisdom to all couples, regardless of whether they have been married four weeks or forty years.

First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Dorothy Littell Greco and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Making Marriage Beautiful" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

"Making Marriage Beautiful" by Dorothy Littell Greco is an enlightening and encouraging read.  Greco writes a transparent book that will make you laugh and think and pray and recognize the things in ourselves that need to change.  You will learn – or be reminded of – positive behaviors that enhance and strengthen relationships.

This book would make a great shower gift for the bride because it will help her plan and pray for and work toward the marriage she wants with deliberate action.  It is also a great gift for the single gal who would like to marry someday and the already married woman who is ready to take on some “home improvement” projects.  This book is not a cure for a bad marriage, but it will open your eyes to how your actions, words and decisions affect your marriage and your husband.  A potentially life-changing read.
