Handheld size, beautifully bound book, Moments of Peace in the Presence of God for Couples; Reflections on God’s Promises and Purpose for Your Marriage is written in the style of Our Daily Bread. A Bible verse, a daily encourager and an ending prayer make up each page without the pesky pressure of a date to follow or a commitment to finish at a certain time. Each page gives couples something to ponder and discuss with one another to bring that peace of God and to learn more about how God wants us to love our mate even more perfectly. In a time of throw-away marriages, shaky politics, wars and perversion of all kinds, it is refreshing to come to this simple, small book and feel the love we should all be so blessed to feel, the joy God intends for us and the peace that gets us through those unbearable times. Coffee-table book – yes, next to your Bible – yes, stuffed on a bookshelf – no! It is meant for quick pick-me-ups and for honest discussions. A book for all seasons!
