“Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase his learning.“ – Proverbs 9:9 (NASB)
I am very impressed with the book. The content is rich and comprehensive. The design is clean and fresh. Congratulations on the publication of this important resource. My prayer is that God will produce much fruit as the result of your hard work.
“God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. God blessed them; and God said to them, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” – Genesis 1:27-28 (NASB)

Bibliography and Resources
"The resources provided in the Intentional Relationships study have given me the tools and prompting to understand my strengths, weaknesses, and spiritual gifts. I also learned how to appreciate the opposite sex. I was reminded of how God created men and women. We should look at our differences to better understand and grow with each other versus focusing on the conflict those differences can bring. This knowledge has changed my perspective to improve my relationships with others and with God."
