9 Traits of a Life-Giving Marriage by Sue Detweiler- A Review

Sue Detweiler / 9 Traits of a Life-Giving Marriage: How to Build a Relationship That Lasts

Is it possible to enjoy a strong and healthy marriage-- 'till death do you part?

Yes... with God!
Sharing with honesty and transparency, Sue Detweiler identifies the essential elements of a life-giving marriage.


  • Heal the broken places in your marriage
  • Strengthen your relationship with your spouse
  • Understand God's plan for your marriage
  • Revive your relationship with God's transformative power

My Review: Like her previous book 9 Traits of a Life Giving Mom that I reviewed here, this book was a gem! I loved every minute! I feel like Ms. Detweiler is real. She shares real life stories, the good, the bad, and the ugly. She covers 9 traits that any marriage could relate to and work on; Acceptance, Friendship, Safety, Honesty, Intimacy, Passion, Endurance, Restoration and Expectancy. 
Each chapter covers a single topic. It includes real life stories, practical advice, and scripture to help you with applying each trait. Daddy T and I have a pretty healthy marriage relationship, but there was still so much that I took away from this! I loved the chapter on Friendship. It's easy in life to sometimes get caught up in the day-to-day and forget that we are on the same team. It definitely reminded me to nurture the friendship that brought us together to begin with. 
I would highly recommend this book to any married couple. It is a great resource to go back to again and again!
