Review

"This book is a true gift to all of us who are seeking stronger marriages. Jeff and Lora have provided us with an incredible guide to help challenge and revitalize our relationships. My wife and I are so thankful for "The 50 Fridays Marriage Challenge"."--Pete Wilson, Pastor and Author of "Plan B"

Product Description

Transform your marriage with this revitalizing relationship guide that challenges couples to answer important questions together and grow in mutual understanding.

In our modern, fast-paced society, it is easy for couples to drift apart and suddenly find their marriages in need of serious help. If this sounds familiar, then Pastor Jeff Helton and his wife Lora have a challenge for you: sit down once a week with your spouse to answer a question together. It could be something as simple as “What makes you laugh out loud?” or as deep and challenging as “If you had one day left on earth, what would you say to your spouse?” or “Are you satisfied with our level of physical intimacy?”

The 50 Fridays Marriage Challenge is a fun book specifically designed to spark open and honest conversation between partners at any stage of married life. Each short chapter includes an engaging question, a brief message, an encouraging quote, a Bible scripture, and a prayer. The short messages bring hope to rocky marriages by providing a safe, gentle space for discussing important matters, such as communication, conflict, in-laws, finances, children, sex, and much more.

By taking the 50 Fridays Marriage Challenge, husbands and wives will find that their Friday evening talks—whether they laugh together, delve deep into the topic at hand, or plan and dream for the future—may be the only time they spend in close conversation that doesn’t involve the kids, the checking account, or who took out the trash. Spend a few precious moments together once a week with this book, and you will ultimately see your marriage transformed.

Fantastic! Realistic and Full of Encouragement.
After reviewing this book I decided to take the challenge. It was a fun to present the idea to my husband. After joking and teasing about the idea - we started! We have enjoyed the weekly challenges. Some challenges are easier than others to complete. We are appreciating the commitment of the Challenge of setting time aside for the two of us to work on our marriage relationship. The scriptures are relevant to the Challenge. The side notes from the Heltons are encouraging. What will your marriage look like on your 50th wedding anniversary? The 50 Fridays Marriage Challenge will help you grow together so that the celebration starts today! This book would be a heartfelt gift for any couple in your life. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars 50 Fridays Marriage Challenge 3 Sep 2013
By debwilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The 50 Fridays Marriage Challenge is a practical, once-a-week guide to get you and your spouse communicating on the most intimate level in order to succeed in the institution called marriage. Too often, marriages fall apart because of a lack of communication - not because of things that happen or cannot be controlled. We live in a modern, fast paced world where we have everything we need at our fingertips, and we no longer need others to satisfy our needs. We spend our lives going to work, bouncing from one activity to the next, constantly keeping an eye on our cell phones and devices, and connecting with others through social networks instead of face-to-face communication and quality time. It is too easy to drift apart even if we're sitting right next to each other, and simple things like talking and paying absolute attention to each other is virtually impossible with the trappings and distractions of our little worlds.

So Jeff and Lora are providing a very simple solution to this modern dilemma: one question a week. That's it! Well that and some effort and enthusiasm on your part is wonderful too. Each short chapter begins with a question that you ask your spouse (you probably should rotate who answers first!) then follows a Bible verse or passage, a brief, encouraging message, and a quote that directly applies with the question for that week. It gives you the chance to sit and talk to your spouse about the things that are important: children, in-laws, fiances, hopes, dreams, jobs, and just about everything about your lives together. Two shall become one, and this is a wonderful jump-start for any marriage; one that is starting out, one you've been in for however many years (yes, even if you think your marriage is almost 100% perfect!), or even if you're thinking about getting married. Communication is the key, and it leads to resolution for all those little issues that cause friction, fights, and falling out. A recommended little guide for anyone with a wedding (or engagement ring) on their fingers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helps communication in marriage 3 Sep 2013
By Jill P. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Communication is a challenge for some marriages. Once the getting to know you phase of dating ends and the married life begins, conversation, which used to come so easily, hides itself behind the difficulty of learning to live together, discovering each other's habits and as children come along, time to spend alone with your spouse must be a planned, on purpose event.

Jeff and Lora Helton, authors of "The 50 Fridays Marriage Challenge", have been married for over 25 years. They created this 50 week challenge to encourage husbands and wives to start a discussion about their relationship, how they define it, their struggles, their strengths, etc. Some of the questions are simple, like "What is your 'wildest dream' vacation?" Others are more challenging, like "What different expectations create challenges in your marriage?" Some may cause conflict while others will help you develop intimacy. Each one will give you an opportunity to work through issues before they arise or do better if they happen again.

Some couples may feel like they communicate well with their spouse. But just talking to each other may not be all you need to develop intimacy in your marriage. The well thought out questions in the Heltons' book will encourage you and your spouse to learn more about each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 50 Fridays Marriage Challenge 12 Sep 2013
By Fitzysmom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In the introduction of the book Jeff shares that while he and his wife Lora were at the celebration of Lora's parents' fiftieth wedding anniversary he started thinking about what he and Lora would look like at fifty years of marriage. Then that thought transformed from what would they look like to what would they be like. He puts it like this:

"Should the Lord allow us to make it to fifty years of marriage, what will we be like at our fiftieth anniversary?

In other words . . . will we finish strong?

Will we be thriving? Or will we be surviving?

Will we be enjoying an intimate and connected marriage? Or will we be two strangers living in the same home?

Will we intentionally be wise in how we spend our days? Or will we foolishly let the months and years pass by?"

With those thoughts in mind Jeff and Lora then issue you a challenge to spend the next fifty Fridays (or whatever day works for you) focusing on a simple question that you as a couple will spend time discussing. The next fifty chapters cover one challenge a week for married couples. Each week starts with a question that may be something fun like, "If you could spend only ten dollars on a date night, what would you do?" Other questions are more reflective and thought provoking like, "If you had only one day left on earth, what would you say to your spouse?"

The next section has corresponding Scripture followed by a short dialog from Jeff and Lora. Then at the end of that week's challenge is usually a beautiful quotation from a well known personality. At the end of the book is a bonus section that has five additional challenges specifically designed for the holidays of Valentine's Day, Palm Sunday, Good Friday and Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

I love the concept behind this book. Stronger marriages will make us a stronger people. Not only will our homes be better but as a result our nation will be better. I'm looking forward to going through each week with my spouse and also giving several copies to friends and family. I hope you will join us in this challenge!

I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
