Love and War: by John Eldredge, Stasi Eldredge | personal book review

If you have heard of Wild at Heart, you know who John Eldredge is… I recently read John & Stasi Eldredge’s book about spiritual warefare in marriage called Love and War: Finding the Marriage You’ve Dreamed Of.

This was definitely a book to take slowly and reflect on each chapter. It takes time to honestly process anything to do with your spirit and relationship with the Lord.

I love that they stayed true to what a Christian marriage should look like and that they dissected MANY pitfalls a married couple face.

So many of us overlook the possibility that our marital arguments are Satan’s tricks (the same ones, over & over again, in fact) – trying to sabotage not only a marriage but two people seeking after Christ together.

HEAVY topic – but SO worth the read!  Think about it – the best way to combat the enemy is to know his bag of tricks, then counter-act them.

God gives us the tools to do this, but we have to be a) diligent b) aware.

I gave this book 5/5 stars on Goodreads because I feel like it is a game-changer to an open heart, earnestly seeking after God.  Any time you seek after Him this way, it will bless your marriage.
