Dorothy Greco and her husband, Christopher, have spent their entire twenty-five-year marriage helping men and women create and sustain healthy marriages. They have served numerous churches in the Greater Boston area for thirty years. Dorothy's writing has been featured in "Relevant Magazine," "Christianity Today," "Sojourners," and "Her.meneutics." She is a regular contributor for "Gifted for Leadership," "Today's Christian Woman," and "Start Marriage Right." The Grecos have three sons and live near Boston.
This is an excellent book that I highly recommend for couples to read, whether they are engaged and planning to be married or they have been married for a few years, or married for many years. Dorothy begins with this book with stating that she is not a marriage expert and her marriage is not perfect; however she and her husband are committed to making their marriage work and they have counseled many couples throughout the year. This is just the beginning of her honesty and her heart that is shared throughout this entire book. Marriage is a lot of work, but it can be so wonderful and Dorothy addresses so many things in this book that may cause disappointments and tension between husband and wife. I love how the author shares her own personal stories and also little tidbits from others and wisdom from other authors, books and things that she has learned throughout the years. The Nonnegotiables and Choosing Joy chapters are my favorite, even though I enjoyed the entire book and found it to be packed with so much and such an overall encouraging book to read.
