Bloggy Giveaway #3 Relationship Book Pack



This giveaway is for two books that can help your relationships, especially your marriage.

The Man Whisperer by Rick Johnson:

What woman hasn't taken a look at her man and decided he could use some improvement? There are some things we can change and some things we can't. Rick Johnson helps women identify the strengths in their men and the things that hold them back. He shows women how they can use their considerable influence in positive ways--without nagging or laying on the guilt trips. A man whisperer is a woman who can use her subtle powers of persuasion to help her man become his very best. With humor and plainspoken common sense, Johnson helps women deal creatively with those annoying little habits while focusing on building his strong points. He also shows women why some tactics just don't work. Any woman who wants her marriage to be stronger will benefit from this enlightening book.

Great Blog. I don't usually read blogs, but yours is great. As far as the best tip for relationships is an old one but very important. it is that you never go to bed angry, always work through the differences before falling asleep. Thank You so much,

My favorite piece of advice I was given at a bridal shower was to live each day as if it were your last together. It was given by a widow and has stuck with me.

Holly said...

Say "I love you" often. Always kiss each other hello and good-bye. Go on dates, even if those "dates" are a dvd and dinner after the kids are in bed.

Terrific giveaway. Thanks!

Dee said...

One tip is to Bite Your Tongue. Pause and think before you react to your spouse or anyone, really. So you don't say anything in anger or frustration that you'll regret.

Communication is the key. This why there are so many failed relationships and marriages today, because of the lack of communication. You just gotta open up. :)

rebecca said...

Wow. My tip would be to not open your mouth until you've thought about what you're going to say. Don't even act like you were going to say something, and then stop... It always makes the other person wonder... I am still working on this one!

Don't expect your spouse to be a mind reader and then get mad when he doesn't know what you're thinking. If something is on your mind, share.

Great giveaway! I'm already a subscriber to your blog.

hmmm, take time to cuddle, even in front of kids :) they need to know mommy and daddy love each other too

Janel said...

My best advice: never take anything for granted. You may think your husband understands what you are talking about, in reality he's out in left field!

Jesica said...

the best advice I was ever given was "it doesn't matter what HE does, you can only control how YOU react"

turns out not everything in the universe was his fault ... who knew?

semtaylor said...

My best tip is to listen to other...Not just in passing but sit down together and talk. semtaylor@yahoo.com

Julie said...

My tip: try to make time just for the 2 of you. When the kids are gone, he's going to be the only one left.

Critter said...

My best tip is to notice the little things in the everyday that your husband does for you, and let him know that you noticed and appreciatted it.

angie said...

I could really use this in my house!
The best piece of advice that I have learned is to watch what u say when in an aegument. Don't say things like calling someone a bad name, attacking their past or choices they have made. Those are horrible things to say!

crystal said...

If you pray together, it's very hard to hold a grudge & let a wedge come between you. It's hard to pray with someone you are mad at. You don't stay mad long!

blueviolet said...

Never leave each other having issued harsh words as the last statement. Going to bed angry doesn't bother me because I sleep fine and usually wake up with a better perspective on things anyhow but I never want us to leave the same physical location having just said something mean or hurtful. One never knows if it's the last time you'll be together. Resolve it or at least say I love you before leaving.

I think "don't live parallel lives" is key. The longer you are married I think it gets easier to just "do your own thing" without involving your spouse.

avalonne83 said...

This is the only tip I can give: never build up a wall between you and the other person (otherwise problems will grow bigger and bigger).

My tip is to choose you battles wisely.....ask your self before you make that comment, is this something you really want to fight over?
Thanks and the books look awesome!

Audra Marie said...

Great books. One of the best things we've done in our marriage is every day when he gets home, we race to see who can sit on our bed first. Then we snuggle and talk about her day before the kids invade. It's a great way to connect for a few minutes every day plus help him transition to home life. :)

itsahumanzoo said...

My tip is to compromise! My husband and I both sometimes enjoy doing different things, and don't always agree, but we compromise and those little differences don't mean much. Thanks for the giveaway!

Amy said...

I always tell people to marry their best friend. It definitely has worked for me!

Josie said...

My tip is to always say I Love You before you do something apart from your spouse.

Jacqueline in Atlanta said...

That Man Whisperer sounds like a great book.

Never have the same fight twice. Once it is over and done with do not bring it up again. If you feel like you want to, you did not finish the conflict the first time.

Thanks for having the giveaway!

The Green Yak said...

I think laughter is an important part of any relationship. Being able to share a good chuckle strengthens a bond, I think :-)

Mommy to those Special Ks said...

Ohhhh I would SO love these books!

My tip: Never start a serious conversation after 10pm, when you're brain and bodies are tired it's easier to let a conversation turn into a fight. Just wait until the next day if at all possible.

dani said...

These books are great! My advice.... never leave without saying I love you!

Rachel said...

My best advice? Never get defensive when you are trying to work out issues with your spouse, because it does nothing but hinder communication. Be willing to admit that you're not perfect either, and you'll go a lot further.

Thank you for doing this!

Say "I love you" everyday and mean it...you never know when it will be your last chance. Jhoklittle@yaho.com

I Love your blog. I subscribed.
My tip: Something that has really helped our marriage was going to see `Fireproof` together. God used it to really change our thoughts on things.
We are both more willing & ready to forgive the other & to help each other be who God made them to be.

Mom 2 To Boys said...

Would LOVE to read these. Hum...relationship tip. We have been reading books to grow in our faith together. It really helps to open discussion between us and makes us hang out together after kiddos go to bed instead of staring at the TV all night! Has been great for our marriage. And more recent I've learned it is best to let go of the little things that bug me and just bless him as much as I can. We are both so much happier now! Thanks for the give a way!

Tobye said...

A tip? Hmmm. I guess that my tip is don't expect it to be easy. It's not, its something you have to work at every day.

Jinxy and Me said...

Simple - be patient. Thanks for the giveaway!
