Today I’m happy to announce that both of my books are now available in paperback.
If you didn’t know about my books, now is your chance.
A Simple Marriage Field Guide is my first book, published in 2009 and is designed as a book/workbook that will help you improve your marriage.
Five years into our marriage my wife and I found ourselves sitting at a food court in the mall one afternoon staring at each other. At that time we didn’t really like each other. Love was still present. But we were seemingly heading in different directions.
We discussed how if some things didn’t change between us, we probably weren’t going to make it. That moment is largely responsible for the marriage we’ve created today.
It’s also what has led to this site.
This book is designed to assist you and your spouse in creating the marriage you desire.
It’s filled with questions and exercises to work on separately and together. These exercises provide a framework to view what goes on naturally in marriage and committed relationships. Once you have a good view, you can harness the energy and dynamics between you to experience more than you thought possible in marriage!
My second book came out later the same year, originally titled Buck Naked Marriage. I am re-releasing it today under the title Marriage Essentials: Focus on What Really Matters.
This book is about keeping your focus on the important, even while handling the immediate.
Part one covers the findings of a research study I conducted in 2008. I asked 1,028 people what they believe are the essential elements for a marriage or committed relationship to thrive. Each chapter addresses one element; the top ten, in rank order according to the research (from 1 to 10).
Part two addresses five common issues married couples face in the course of marriage. Each of these issues often shift the focus away from the larger view of marriage, so they are covered in a way that help you focus on the essentials and not get bogged down with the unnecessary.
