Some Great Resources:

  • Rector recommended! Check out Dr. John Gottman's Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work (Available for $9 on Amazon or check it out from our church Library). This book is easy to read, insightful, and actionable. It contains exercises that will strengthen your marriage.
  • We also recommend subscribing to the Marriage Minute, a free email twice a week with practical, useful marriage tips that apply to all.  It really does take just a minute to read.
