Highly happy marriages

Wow!  I love this book.  Every time I get to review a book on marriage I jump on the chance to do it.  As I ripped open the package for this book, I begin to read it immediately.  Now this book is not meant to be a "pleasure book."  It is meant to instruct and challenge.  It definitely did that.  But it did not bore or put me to sleep.  Shanti Feldhahn writes in a way to keep you engaged.
Some chapter topics of this book are: Go to bed mad, keep score, boss their feelings around, have factual fantasies, get in over their heads, don't tell it like it is, and don't look to marriage to make you happy.
Obviously those titles are to get you drawn in but they are great chapters and help you think.  This book is also easy to apply to your marriage right now.  If you care about your marriage or if you want to help the marriage of a close friend get the book: Highly happy marriages by Shanti Felhahn.

Rick Warren's new book "The Daniel Plan" a review

First of all, I like Rick Warren.  I listen to his sermons, I have all his books.  I was excited to read this book.  I assumed it would be a diet book but I was wrong.  It definitely brings in the food part of health but it is so much more.  Warren points out 5 parts of the Daniel plan: Faith•Food•Fitness•Focus•Friends.  Warren contends these 5 things are essential to a healthy life.  I love that he begins with faith.  If this were a diet book, I wouldn't have read it but this is drenched in faith which is great.  I highly recommend this book if you are ready to get healthy in your body, mind, soul, and spirit.  This is the book for you.
