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: husbands and wives each have a driving need. Wives have a driving need to feel loved. When that need is met, she is happy. Husbands have a driving need to feel respected. When that need is met, he is happy. When either of these needs aren’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 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 an MA in communications from Wheaton College, a Master’s of Divinity from Dubuque Seminary, and a PhD 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.
