Love and Respect
The Love She Most Desires, The Respect He Desperately Needs
Love and Respect is a marriage book with a difference. This book reveals why spouses react negatively to each other, and how they can deal with such conflict quickly, easily and biblically.
Love and Respect is a marriage book with a difference. It contains a revolutionary yet simple message that a wife has one driving need—to feel loved. When that need is met, she is happy. While a husband has one driving need—to feel respected. When that need is met, he is happy. When either of these needs isn’t met, things get crazy.
Love and Respect reveals why spouses react negatively to each other, and how they can deal with such conflict quickly, easily, and biblically.
Based on over three decades of counseling, as well as scientific and biblical research, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs and his wife, Sarah, have already taken the Love and Respect message across America and are changing the way couples talk to, think about, and treat each other. What do you want for your marriage? Want some peace? Want to feel close? Want to feel valued? Want to experience marriage the way God intended? Then why not try some Love and Respect.
Excited yet burdened about male and female relationships, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs launched the Love and Respect Conferences in August 1999. Emerson was the senior pastor of East Lansing’s thriving Trinity Church before devoting himself full-time to building healthy marriages.
Dr. Eggerichs has a M.A. in communications from Wheaton College, a Master’s of Divinity from Dubuque Seminary, and a Ph.D. in child and family ecology from Michigan State University. He and his wife, Sarah, live in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and have three adult children.
He is the president of Love and Respect Ministries.
