4 Books To Read If You Want To Rock At Relationships

1.  Keep Your Love On 

“Keep Your Love On” by Danny Silk is a based widely on the premise that we can choose to love no matter how difficult the circumstances we’re facing seem to be (disclaimer: this is not a book that condones any sort of abuse, but rather offers practical advice for people in safe relationships).  What I love about this book is that the principles in it apply to marriage but aren’t confined to marriage. The reach across the line into work relationships, mentor/mentee relationships, friendships, family dynamics, etc.

Keep Your Love On: Connection Communication And Boundaries

In reading this book you will learn how to:

– how to build and nurture a relationship that keeps you connected to the ones you love.
– how to communicate respectfully and effectively
– Set boundaries that will prioritize and protect the relationships that matter most to you.

2. The 5 Love Languages

“The 5 Love Languages” by Gary Chapman will teach you how to identify our spouse’s Love Language (the way he best receives love) and how to put that love language into action so that. This has made such a difference for my husband and I. Knowing how to he receives love best helps me communicate and display my love for him more effectively, eliminating the disconnect that plagues so many couples.

The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts

Our marriage may not be perfect, but it is worlds better after applying what I learned from this book.

3. 100 Ways To Love Your Husband

100 Ways to Love Your Husband is a genius relationship guide for married women. Especially in conjunction with The 5 Love Languages. If you have found your spouse’s love language but need some help getting the creative juices flowing when it comes to applying his love language to your actions, this book is a great place to start.

100 Ways To Love Your Husband: the life-long journey of learning to love each other

It’s literally a compilation of 100 actions steps that will help your actions back your “I love you’s.”

4.  Words That Hurt, Words That Heal

This isn’t so much a book on how to love but more so how to use your words for good. Our words play a big part in the success of our relationships. The things we speak matter and I didn’t realize just how much until I started reading this book. It’s a bit more “matter of fact” than the three books I mentioned above, but no less valuable. In fact, I’d say it’s probably even more valuable. If there’s a way to damage a relationship with little to no effort, it’s by the words we speak. So it makes sense to learn how to guard those words and use them to breathe life instead of bringing hurt.

I’d love to hear from you! What are some of the books you’ve read to that have helped you strengthen your marriage (and other relationships)?

  1. I’ve read “The 5 Love Languages”, and it helped me to love others the way they could receive it.

  2. I haven’t read any of those books yet. I am reading Married But Lonely By: David E. Clarke. It’s about steps to get you & your spouse to the marriage you’ve always dreamed of having. Seven steps you can take with or without your spouse’s help.
