My Favorite Covenant/Marriage Preparation and Maintenance Books to Date!

What are you reading?
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.
