As I have been a marriage counselor for over twenty years, I have worked with hundreds of marriages. In my experience at working with marriages I have witnessed common threads in the breakdown of marriages. Getting to the Heart of Your Marriage draws out these common patterns and helps the reader understand the dynamics that are at work in relationships and marriage. In the pages of my book you will; 1. discover your need for value and security and how these needs play into your marital dynamics, 2. understand your unique personality differences and how your personalities are a "tail that wags the dog" in your marriage, 3. learn how to implement the important tools of communication, negotiation,and reconciliation to foster a health and rewarding marriage, and 4. understand and learn how to build a healthy House of Intimacy. It is my goal that your marriage will be enriched through the pages of my book.
