Becoming Soul Mates


Recently I wrote a review on the book entitled "Becoming Soul Mates: How To Create The Lifelong Relationship You Always Dreamed Of for Reader Views. This is an excellent book for any of you who are marrried. It doesn't matter how long you have been married, you can always learn something new that will help you create the marriage that God intends it to be.

Here is the review:
Is your marriage everything you want it to be? Could you use a little help? You can have that lifetime relationship you always wanted. "Becoming Soul Mates: How to Create the Lifelong Relationship You Always Dreamed Of" is the perfect resource book for all married couples. If you are just married, married a few years, or many years, you could learn alot from this book no matter how many years you have with your spouse.

Elva Anson brings her 40 plus years of married life to help others. She is a Marriage and Family Therapist who has helped many couples deal with their deteriorating marriages and strengthen others. Her own husband Everett says that the principles in the book have helped he and Elva become intimate friends and closer companions by using the principles in this book.

All the different aspects of marriage are explored in "Becoming Soul Mates." There are chapters on explaining the definition of intimacy, safety through love, listening, talking with your spouse and meshing your differences. There are very helpful tips on how to have fun getting closer to your spouse. Talking about your feelings is not always easy but there is help for that. Listening is paramount to your relationship. Anyone can talk, but can you communicate effectively?

My husband and I have been married for over 11 years and are still learning. Do you ever really know your spouse? We have been having fun trying to implement the many tips in this book. This book is written with a Christian perspective on how God has given us all differences and how to make the most of them. Since reading this book, I have often heard "where did you ever learn that?" Our whole concept of communication is changed after reading this book. We have learned to appreciate our differences and work on areas of relationship which needed help. One of my favorite parts of this book are the 20 reminders of how to get closer to your spouse.

With a valuable resource like "Becoming Soul Mates: How to Create the Lifelong Relationship You Always Dreamed Of" you too can make your relationship all that it is intended to be. Elva Anson's easy to read style makes me anxious to see if she will write more terrific books like this one. Becoming your spouse's soul mate is possible!

I look forward to your comments.
