What are you reading? My favorite covenant/marriage preparation and maintenance books to date!

As my husband and my one year wedding anniversary (6/9/13) is rapidly approaching; I decided to re-post this article from one of my other blogs.  I wrote this piece just weeks before I walked down the aisle.

Recently a dear sister-friend of mine that is also engaged asked me what books I have been reading in preparation of my own big day.  However, I believe each person’s journey to the altar is different and so the titles that speak to them will also differ.  For example, for me, I am preparing to become an athletic coach’s and an educator’s wife (my fiancé’s primary sport is football.)

With that, all being said, please find a sampling of titles. I foresee as my transition from bride-to-be to wife that this listing will expand.
