Thriving Marriages responds to an urgent need today: to preserve and strengthen marriages. It offers not a list of skills to "fix" problems but a new and positive vision of how to build Christian unity between spouses, integrating psychology and spirituality. While addressing the problems of hurting couples, its main thrust is to prevent problems and to bring fullness to married life. A powerful resource for those ministering to couples, it offers a practical and effective marriage curriculum for couples and family ministries, or for church-related premarital and marital enrichment programs."In Thriving Marriages, John and Claire Yzaguirre provide a fresh and positive vision on how to build unity in our married lives. If you wish to better yourself and strengthen your relationship with that special person in your life, implement their wisdom."
New York Times best-selling author of Help Yourself and A Child Called It
"In this delightful book, couples are urged and gently nudged to consider the exquisite yet simple components of empathy, autonomy and mutuality in marriage. The "Try this" suggestions and practical activities in each chapter will draw you into new horizons of unity as a couple."
