Book Review Companions: Redeem Your Marriage and Reclaim Your Marriage by Curtis and Jenny Solomon


The issue of pornography is all around us in the world today. In fact, it is hurting relationships all around us, including those within the church. The church desperately needs voices to discuss the effects of pornography on a marriage and family. These companion books do just that. 

These are welcome voices that honestly and openly discuss this topic with truth and grace. These are written by a husband and wife duo who have experienced the pain of porn. The first, Redeem Your Marriage is written by the husband from the man's perspective and the second, Reclaim Your Marriage is written by the wife from the woman's perspective. 

As a faith-based counselor, I like these resources for each partner to read so they can gain a biblical perspective on this issue and help promote healing in their lives. I also understand each couple's situation is different. This book is written with specific questions and answers to help with that as well. However, if you are in a relationship that is abusive in any way which involves this topic, it is wise to get yourself to a safe place and involve others in the struggle for the sake of safety and accountability. If this is a sin struggle where someone is not in danger, these books are really helpful for the couple to break free and begin healing and building trust in their marriage.

These are helpful resources that also point you to hope in Christ.

I received a copy of these books for the purpose of an honest review.

Book Review: Before the Throne by Keeth


Personally, I love studying anything on the topic of prayer. This study was no exception. I like how it takes you through the word of God to study for yourself many different recorded prayers through the Bible. The premice of the studied prayers are those that specifically address situations that find you in difficult times. Each example and prayer is paired with thoughtful questions and application. It all points you to God and is good for helping you grow in the discipline of prayer.

I do recommend this study for anyone wanting to grow in God's word, as we all probably do desire this. It helps us to know God better. We could never know Him enough! This is a good one for your Bible study collection. 

I did receive a free copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.
