What I Took Away

My husband and I are truly blessed with a best-friend kind of marriage. But I was still inspired and challenged by this book. I have come away with a renewed energy to pour into the friendship I have with my spouse and a determination not to take that friendship for granted.

I love the biblical vision Hal and Melanie have cast for a family with a mission, and a couple that functions well to work effectively toward that mission. My role to help my husband in that effort is no small thing!
