Barbara and Dennis Rainey, parents of six teenage or older children, map out the unfamiliar, demanding landscape of both pre-adolescence (ages 10-12), as well as the teen years that follow."Preadolescence is when convictions are shaped; adolescence is when convictions are tested," they advise parents.

Rekindling the Romance

by Dennis Rainey

Deep within every marriage is a God-given desire for intimacy. By God's design, romance is supposed to be the flame in the fireplace. It includes warmth, security, and, of course, sexual intimacy. Yet far too many Christian couples feel cheated because their marriage produces about as much spark as a book of wet matches. For them the kids, the long hours at the office, the bills, health issues, and even feelings of guilt leave them drained. Others have neglected to fan the flames of passion for so long that they have lost hope of experiencing romance. Their relationship has become as routine as it is lifeless. Some are so puzzled by the whole affair they have come to the wrong conclusion that God has withheld something good from them. In short, romance in marriage can be a challenge and a mystery. Rekindling the Romance is organized into a collection of short, easy-to-digest, biblically based chapters. Packed with practical insight, this tastefully candid and inviting resource provides the Christian couple with the keys to unlock their relational and sexual intimacy.
