Show and Tell Saturday...



I participating in Show and Tell Saturday over with Kim @ Homesteaders Heart...I think that this is a great idea and you should check it out and link up.

Super Easy...share a book that has been a blessing to you and for me and my husband right now we are reading Trading Places...I am a firm believer that no marriage is perfect and guess what....OURS fits the bill! God has given me an eye opening this year that my husband should be cherished and that our family will reap the rewards...and the key ingredient...EMPATHY!!!

Oh I am telling you ladies, this book is just shy of the 11th commandment for me right now...I am learning what Empathy is and how to exactly give empathy as well as receive it. I just LOVE the fact that making my marriage better will make God happier with both of us!!!

So, if you have a chance pick up the book. You can also check out the website Real Relationships and take a quiz with the book that will assist you and your mate on where your "EMPATHY" meter is..(PS, I did not even have one)!!!

Good Reading!!!

I keep hearing you talk about this one. I really do need to get it. I am not taking that test, because we came from almost the same set of "jeans" I mean genes. So I know I will not do well with the empathy test either. Lord help me:)

Jennifer said...

That looks really good! We read their book "Getting Ready for the Wedding" when we were engaged--all about the marriage, not the wedding--and it was so good! We could probably use a little empathy in our marriage too. I still believe investing in the marriage is the greatest investment we can make.

Leah said...

Thanks for the tip. I've been short on empathy recently. Need to turn that around!

Joan said...
