Great Parents: Lousy Lovers - Book Review

Great Parents, Lousy Lovers: Why Your Kids Deserve to Experience Your Great Marriage  -              By: Dr. Gary Smalley, Ted Cunningham

Great Parents: Lousy Lovers

By: Dr. Gary Smalley & Ted Cunningham

Smalley and Ted Cunningham take turns authoring each chapter adding humors antidotes and very applicable examples. They both use their own life experiences as a lesson to the reader. At the end of each chapters, there are a number of thought provoking questions about the topic.

I personally really enjoyed this book. Not only was it an enjoyable read (very easy read as well), but it was humorous, and very applicable to me. The Authors bring real life situations to the page in a very candid and practical way. I love how they integrated scripture throughout the book. Using the wisdom of Solomon as a guide for marriage. It never ceases to amaze me how the Bible has the answers to everything in our lives. Even with keeping the spark alive in our marriage, managing our homes, and trying to be great parents.

I recommend this book a thousand percent. Be prepared to be challenged, be convicted, and most of all be ready to make a change!

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
