New TSG Bookclub Read: Love and War
In 2009, I started The Style Geek (TSG) Bookclub. The club is a way for people, both online and offline, to discuss life, learn something new and connect on a deeper level.
Part of what I’m hoping to do on this blog is share some of the lessons I’ve learned about life in the 28 years I’ve been blessed to be on this earth. None of those lessons are more important than the ones I’ve learned through being married. While I don’t talk much about my relationship with Hubs, I am willing to discuss some of the ways marriage has stretched me and made me a better person. Really, I think being willing to be stretched and grow as a person is one of the keys to a good marriage.
In Love and War, John and Stasi Eldridge address some of the issues that often arise in relationships and talk about how they’ve worked through those issues as a couple. Even if you’re not currently married, I would suggest reading this book along with me. You don’t magically morph into a good partner once your significant other slips a ring on your finger. In order to be a good husband or wife, you have to work on yourself before and after you get married.
We’ll be starting the book on Monday, February 6th, so grab a copy, read along and share your thoughts in the comments section below!
