Product Description

In recent decades, prophets have repeatedly emphasized how a strong marriage and family is the basis of a robust society; they have counseled and warned of the many modern obstacles that can erode a healthy family life. This book draws on inspiring personal stories, research from sociology and psychology, and teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ to present key principles that, when applied, will help a marriage thrive. The authors use three broad content areas—the things we each need to do personally to improve our marriage (me), the things we need to do together as a couple to strengthen our marital relationship (we), and ways we can more fully involve God in our marriage relationship (Thee). This three-part approach is both theoretical and practical and will help guide readers to a successful and happy marriage.

Loved how this book made our blended family look so normal! The insights to becoming one in our marriage whilst maintaining our individualities and our agency are spot on! Wish I had this when our children were younger!
A must read for couples in any stage of life!

Truly excellent. Inspiring, detailed and pragmatic.

This book is fantastic. Well written, authentic, relatable, and full of take away teachings that can be applied to help yourself find more joy and to bring more fulfillment into marriage. Although it is catered to members of the LDS church the principles are fully applicable to all marriages.
