Kathi Lipp, the inspired author of The Husband Project is back with her next 21-day, practicality oriented love-fest for married couples, and this time it’s even better! Designed to be completed as a team, The Marriage Project provides suggestions for dates, cuddle times, words of affirmation, and positive bonding experiences that promise to strengthen and support both strong and faltering marriages.
With a perfect blend of real-life witticisms, honesty about the joys and difficulties of married life, and a touch of scriptural support, Lipp’s latest is a fast, engaging, and eminently do-able guide to setting your marriage to ‘project status’. Complete with planning pages, daily project assignments, suggestions for tweaking, room for journaling, and testimonies from real-life couples who’ve completed each project, The Marriage Project is all you’ll need to embark on three-weeks of high-quality marital bonding.
I love Lipp’s writing – flirty without being tawdry, willing to laugh at her own quirks, and – when circumstances demand – in our faces about getting out of our lazy relationship habits, she’s always a pleasure to read. I don’t normally laugh a lot when I’m reading non-fiction, but Kathi Lipp is sure to get some giggles from me every time.
Better yet, her Marriage Project is simple and flexible enough to provide most any couple, regardless of their financial or physical locations to bless their marriage for 21 consecutive days. The projects can be dressed up or down according to budgets, and many can be completed for little or no cost.
Lipp is sure to provide suggestions that accommodate a range of budgets and none require vast amounts of planning. That’s reassuring for an organizationally challenged woman like myself. Lipp also devotes page space to overcoming common obstacles, setting an accountability structure in place, and devoting a week to planning out the project with your mate – on paper, in advance.
