I am all about self-development and improvement which covers all aspects of our lives and investing in our marriages is one which is vital. I am in the 5th year of marriage and I have learnt a lot in this time. I will not call myself an expert in marriage but as a Christian household we believe that God is the creator of marriage so I have a list of my best reads; 5 books plus a bonus book, every christian married woman and man needs to read and apply.
