Night Light: A Devotional for Couples

Now for the first time in softcover! Whether you’re just married or are celebrating your golden anniversary, you need regular, quiet moments with your mate—times to renew love and intimacy with each other and with the Lord. Night Light, by Dr. James Dobson and his wife, Shirley, will help you do just that. This daily devotional offers the personal, practical, and biblical insights that have sustained the Dobsons’ marriage for forty years and encouraged couples and families around the world. Let Night Light enrich your marriage too—tonight and every night.Rising divorce rates inspired Dr. James Dobson, founder and president of Focus on the Family, and his wife, Shirley, to author a devotional for couples in an attempt to strengthen the marriages of younger generations. Night Light: A Devotional for Couples contains six months of daily devotions stemming from the Dobsons’ 40 years of marriage experience. Beginning on Sunday, an inspirational story addresses a relevant theme, such as communication, money, forgiveness, or conflict resolution, which is expounded upon throughout the devotions for that week. Scripture, probing questions, and short anecdotes encourage intimacy between the couple in an attempt to ward off stagnation and habitual laziness in spiritual growth. While the questions and suggestions will affect every couple differently, this devotional stimulates conversation about weighty issues of the heart and turns the head toward what matters for eternity. Knowing that most couples are too exhausted by the end of the day to analyze every facet of their marriage, however, the Dobson’s have crafted the devotions to be completed within 10 minutes. One would expect this to be most helpful for newlyweds, but it is a revitalizing aide for those who have had poor communication throughout their marriage or are looking to refocus their marriage on Christ. Night Light is a wonderful way to set your mind on the Lord before turning out the light and for drawing closer to your mate in the process. –Jill Heatherly

  1. Thoughtful Nicely Balanced Devotional I came across this devotional in the bookstore a few weeks ago and was initially attracted to the book because the salesperson said that she was getting great feedback about the book and that they were selling very well. 

  2. My husband and I have bought this for many new couples. My husband and I love this book, we have read it together several times, and always give it as a wedding gift to every wedding we attend. 

  3. Night Light:A Devotional for Couples This book is just what the couple on the go needs. I never would have believed that my husband would actually enjoy reading with me, but this book includes something for the husband and the wife. It takes less than 10 minutes each night and it makes a lasting impression on each of you. It is based on the bible, but puts the ideas into ways that they may be implemented in daily life. We are in the early stages in the book and we can both tell a difference in our attitudes toward our marriage and…
