Great Parents, Lousy Lovers
Great Parents, Lousy Lovers by Gary Smalley and Ted Cunningham was the perfect book for us, being parents for almost a year now. And if you read this book in front of your spouse, you won't have to beg him to read it because he'll want to know what you keep laughing about. Seriously, it is laugh out loud funny, but maybe that is because it is so true. The authors explain how it is possible to be both great parents and great lovers. Intimacy does not have to be tossed out the window with the arrival of children.
We learned so much through reading this book and most importantly we were encouraged. Don't expect to be beaten down by all the things you should be doing. This book is practical, realistic, and empowering for parents of children of any age. However, if you are like me, books on marriage and parenting are on my list of things that I would like to get around to reading, but I often start and then struggle to stay interested enough to finish. Not with this book. You will finish it, and then tell all your friends about it. 5 out of 5 stars!
I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale in exchange for an honest review.
