5 Minutes for Books — Generation NeXt Marriage

Generation NeXt Marriage is different from other marriage books I’ve read. It has convinced me of the benefits of approaching my marriage within the context of my generation.

Gen Xers crave authenticity and relevance. Tricia Goyer delivers both by sharing her own experiences and those of other Gen Xers while backing them up with thorough research and statistics.

I love Tricia Goyer’s style. She writes in an uncompromising way about what our responsibilities are to our husbands, but in a way that encourages us to do what we know we should. This book (like her first Gen X book, Generation NeXt Parenting ) is fun and easy to read, with statistics, personal stories, practical advice, and song lyrics from the 80’s and 90’s.gen-next-marriage.jpg

You probably knew that we were the first generation to see more divorces than successful marriages. You are probably living a life where you have to seek balance because you’ve been conditioned to do it all. You might be striving to prove yourself because people never thought our generation would amount to much. You might be dealing with baggage from the freedom that you took in your teen years.  Any of this sound familiar? If so, you will find inspiration and answers in Generation NeXt Marriage.

    Sounds like both of these books would be good for me to read. If I don’t win I’ll just have to hunt them down at the library or try to convince my darling hubby that I really need more books to fill my already overstuffed bookshelf and just go to the bookstore LOL

  2. says

    Sounds like a wonderful book! I’ve often thought most books were written for an older generation. It’s nice to see someone examining the issues of our generation.

  3. says

    Well, this sounds like it’s right up my ally.. and I could use the quality “me-time” with these books.

    thanks for the great contest!

  4. Christy H. says

    My husband and I are making plans to celebrate our 30th anniversary.

    I’d like to win this book for our daughter who is getting married in June.

    I am interested in these books! I am 24 and single, but very much looking forward to being married in God’s timing and am trying to build a library of Godly resources for that time. Thank you!

  6. Elizabeth M. says

    I see marriages strewn beside me all the time and I’m committed to not letting that happen to me. I’d love to get some insight from this book as to what the heck is going on these days.
