Cheers to Eternity: Lessons We've Learned on Dating and Marriage Review and Giveaway

About the book: At one point, Al Fox was a tattooed Mormon who was sure she would never get married. What changed? Find out in this beautifully open book, written by Al and her now-husband Ben Carraway. Experience their journey from meeting to dating to marriage and read their answers to popular dating questions like, "What qualities should I look for in a future spouse?" and "How do I know if this person is the one?"

My review: This book is so much fun! It's not often that you read a non-fiction book and can't keep yourself from smiling, but this is that kind of book! 

I love the way it's written. The first section is just a conversation between the two authors, husband and wife Ben and Al. And they are hilarious! They talk about pretty much everything from their backgrounds to how they met to how they get over their arguments. I love how they are just so honest and open about everything. Even if it's a topic that embarrasses them, they still talk about it in an open way.

After their conversations, they talk about specific topics in each of the following
chapters. I loved each of the chapters and learned a lot. Here's the chapter titles: It's Not About You; Communication; Always Have Time for Love; God's Will; Do Hard Things Together; God First, Bro; and Not Taking Things So Seriously. 


I loved that I personally learned things from each and every chapter. I loved that they included not only their personal stories and ways they learned each of the lessons they learned, but they also use personal stories from other couples and they are discreet and tasteful about it. 

This book is not a very long one, it is really an enjoyable read. I'm pretty sure it took me under an hour to read the whole thing, but it really resonated with me. I know I'm thinking of ways that I can take the lessons that Al and Ben have learned and apply them in my own life and marriage.

Thanks to Al and Ben for opening up their lives and allowing us a peek inside! Check this one out, you'll love it as much as I did! And I just had to include the pictures they sent me of themselves, because aren't they just adorable!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
