What Others Are Saying about Making Marriage Beautiful

With wise and winsome words reflecting decades of couples’ ministry experience, Dorothy Littell Greco offers deep yet extremely practical ways to build a Christ-honoring, thriving relationship. Rather than proclaiming ideals from some imaginary pedestal, she invites you to walk with her and her spouse as fellow sojourners, while pointing you to tangible hope from God’s promises. Indeed, this book will speak life-changing truth straight into the heart of your marriage. Jeffrey P. Bjorck

Ph.D. Licensed Psychologist, Professor of Psychology, Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, CA. Married 26 years.

With careful precision, Dorothy Greco examines the complexities, pain, and beauty inherent in our marriages and guides us chapter by hope-filled chapter into the wisdom needed to cultivate marriages that overflow with love and beauty.

Making Marriage Beautiful addresses everything we bring into marriage—our family histories, our cultural backgrounds, our ambitions and areas of growth. She compassionately challenges us to see how those aspects of our identity can both hinder and strengthen our marriages. With humor, warmth, and honesty, Greco calls us to be not only better spouses, but better individuals and better followers of Jesus.

Making Marriage Beautiful is full of goodness and truth, one of the wisest and most comprehensive books on marriage I’ve ever read.

A remarkably honest and profoundly wise roadmap for real marriage—the kind that survives relational ups and downs, twists and turns, disappointments and doubts long enough to become a reflection of the life-changing, love-giving Christ. Dorothy Greco paints this real-marriage landscape with uncanny skill, deft insight, and fearless power. Five stars! Patricia Raybon

Making Marriage Beautiful is a unique, remarkably engaging, and vulnerable treatise. It shows me how, even after 31 years of marriage, I’ve got more to learn and my own “willingness and commitment to be changed” can and will make all the difference. As a husband and pastor, I hope this book gets the acclaim it deserves. Rev. Ray Kollbocker

Senior Pastor, Parkview Community Church, Glen Ellyn, IL. Married 31 years

Within faith communities, marriage has been largely written about by men. Dorothy Greco brings a refreshing female voice to the conversation: candid, thoughtful, wise, and well-researched, with helpful examples from actual marriages, including her own. A solid resource for couples, pastors, and congregations.
