Marriage Matters KindleMarriage joins two imperfect people who pledge to love, honor, and commit to each other for life. Eleven couples graciously chose to share their stories within the pages of this book because they believe in the sanctity of marriage. None of the couples are perfect, but they come alongside you and your spouse with experience and encouragement as you pray about how to live out your own marriage. Some of the couples work in full-time ministry, others have chosen the military as their career. Some couples have faced the issue of infertility while others have had to deal with sickness or death. Some couples have been remarried, others married later in life, and others have dealt with seemingly more than any one couple should have to face in a lifetime. All of the couples have one thing in common – their love for God and their commitment to marriage God’s way.Grab your favorite beverage in a comfy chair and get ready to be encouraged.

"Marriage Matters" by Cheri Swalwell is another book that I am glad I read and it is one that I will be enjoying for years to come, well, I guess enjoying isn't there right word but I will be rereading over and over becomes it isn't fiction and is about real life and a subject that is very needed in  today's world. This book is about eleven different couples who shares their own stories of marriages. These stories are not about have how their marriages have been perfect but is told honesty and they share tools to help other couples have a truly rewarding marriage, notice I didn't say perfect.

The book does say if you are in a relationship with an unbeliever and not marriage yet, then to run. On, the other hand, if you are wondering if you married the right one, once you said "I do" then you are married too the right one because you entered into a covenant with your spouse and God.

I like how the book includes Scriptures. This book doesn't read like a textbook but it is one that anyone can read and understand.

This book is one that would make a nice wedding gift or even an anniversary gift for a couple.

Once again, I really  think any marriage would benefit from both spouses reading and putting into practice the things shared in this book. I am going to say something, I have never said before about a book, I am not sharing my couple of this book with anyone. In fact, I received a  complimentary ebook from the author and Celebrate Lit and these are my own opinions but I have ordered a print copy and hopefully I can get my husband to read the book also.

More from Cheri

Back in 2007, long before writing was even on my radar, I had a conversation with God about writing a book that would offer hope to those who had lost a child. We had lost our baby the December prior, and I needed to know I wouldsmile again someday. Little did I know that conversation 12 years ago would result in a series of compilation books encouraging others about various topics. The first one, Hope During Heartache was published in 2014, and it’s 13 different men and women’s stories about how they found hope after dealing with the death of a child.
In early 2015, I had another conversation with God and asked Him … “What’s next? Do You have any other compilation books you’d like me to share with others to bring encouragement?” In 2018, Peace During the Pain was published (a book about how to find peace after the diagnosis of cancer) which is 12 different men and women’s stories either about their own personal journey or the journey of a family member.
The goal for 2020 is to publish Joy During the Journey, a compilation of people who have found joy despite living with chronic illness.
During my 2015 conversation, I asked God if He would allow me to write a compilation book about a “happier” topic than death, cancer, and chronic illness. And in His goodness, He said yes! That is when He told me I could write about the topic of marriage, a topic I truly love because being married and having children has always been my heart’s desire. Not only do I get to share encouragement, support, and wisdom from 11 different couples with you in this book, an added bonus is that one of the couples is my parents, another is my youth pastor and his wife, whom I’ve admired for over 25+ years, and yet another is my present pastor and his wife. All three of these couples have significantly modeled biblical marriage for me throughout the years. But that’s not all. There are also military couples, couples who have suffered circumstances no couple should ever have to face, and new friends I’ve met through the writing of this book. I believe you will enjoy as much as I have the encouragement and wisdom from each and every couple who took the time to share a little about their life with you. I’m excited to share the stories between these pages … so sit back, grab your favorite beverage and be prepared to get encouraged!
