Thriving Marriages: An Inspirational and Practical Guide to Lasting Happiness by John A. Yzaguirre, Claire Frazier-Yzaguirre

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.
