Summary

Gary Thomas, best-selling author of Sacred Marriage, believes that one word can bring hope, light and life into any marriage: Cherish

"Most marriages survive by gritting teeth and holding on. But marriages can and will not only survive but thrive when husbands and wives learn to cherish one another", Thomas says. 

And in a world desperate for marriage redemption, the act of cherishing is needed now more than ever. 

Thomas shows that although there are a countless number of marriages consisting of two people just going through the motions, there are real ways this pattern can be reversed: when husbands and wives learn to cherish one another in proven, loving, and everyday actions and words. 

Through personal stories and real-world examples, Thomas proves what husbands and wives can begin doing today to turn their marriage around - even a marriage marred by neglect and disrespect. 

So how do you cherish your spouse? Thomas will show you how going out of your way to notice them, appreciate them, honor them, encourage them, and hold them close to your heart will bring hope, light, and life into your marriage.

Every husband needs to read this book

Gary Thomas nails it with this book. There are handful of books I need to read every year, and Cherish is definitely one of them. He gives practical tips and biblical insights into how to not just love your wife, but cherish her. Get this and listen to it immediately.

(He also does a great job narrating!)

A gift from above

My best friend passed away 13 years ago. ~Cherish~ was a word she used to use a lot. So much so we teased her about it sometimes. Fast forward to 2016, I was struggling in my marriage, I prayed and out loud, verbally asked my best friend to HELP ME!! I started browsing for books and within minutes there it was right before me *CHERISH*... wow. I was shocked. I was even MORE shocked it was about MARRIAGE. I bought it without even reading the whole summary. It was a sign from above, truly for me it was. I was a little turned off by the constant religious references ( I'm more spiritual than religious I guess) and I almost stopped within the first chapter. BUT because of how this book came to me, I had to complete it. Period. And I did. I'm so glad I did :) I also had my husband listen to it as well. It helped us tremendously and was the first book we both listened to, to aid in our marriage troubles. almost 3 years later and 12 years of marriage, we are stronger than ever. I even have the word tattooed on my arm now :) So thank you! To the author and my best friend <3

Okay

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, it is pretty much the same montra we have been hearing for the last 50yrs. Men, get in touch with your feminin side. I would recommend love and respect by Emmrson & Sarah Eggrich and The Meaning of Marriage by Timothy & Kathy Keller

Has Cherish turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

Could you see Cherish being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No

Cherish

I am thankful for the insight and clarity that Gary Thomas so masterfully relayed in this book. It opened my heart and mind to see how to live out Gods Truths in my marriage.

Again and again

This book is quickly becoming my desired , “required” book to listen to multiple times a year. It is packed with encouragement and concepts to keep me loving my Cherished bride well as I and reminded my wife is cherished by our Creator already and I get the honor of partnering with Him in fulfilling the love He has given us.
