The 50 Fridays Marriage Challenge by Jeff and Lora Helton Book Review

The 50 Fridays Marriage Challenge by Jeff and Lora Helton is book with 50+ questions to ask over a period of a year.  Pick a time, place, pray, get a journal and go!  Each chapter begins with a challenge in the form of a question, a Bible verse, a relevant story and a quote from an author or famous person.  Each chapter is short and simple, but embraces the challenge and gives real life examples.  Couples are encouraged to share and discuss these questions, be intentional, faithful and build a better marriage by consistent conversation and fun!
This book holds a lot of good discussion questions that are good for every couple to ask each other.  I liked that the questions were different than other books with the same message.  A few questions that I really liked were...In the midst of conflict, what kind of animal are you?  What are some things that make you laugh out loud?  How do you handle failure? and What in your spiritual pathway helps you experience and love God?  These questions and many others are designed to ignite conversation and carry the marriage to greater intimacy and more time spent together.  As a married person I know that developing a friendship and love relationship with my husband takes effort and time.  This book is step in that direction.  I suggest this for couples who are having trouble, happy or newly married!  Yes, any married can benefit from this book. 
*I received a free copy of this book from Howard Books, for my honest review.  The opinions expressed here are my own.*
