Three Resources Designed to Improve Your Marriage

My wife, Kendra, and I have been married for more than 22 years (May 25, 1991). During that time we’ve discovered that marriage takes a lot of work (primarily because I can be difficult to live with at times — I’m a Type A Perfectionist). Along the way we’ve also discovered that we must be intentional at improving our marriage. With that in mind, here are 3 resources designed to help you improve your marriage (if you are single and plan to get married keep these in mind as you prepare for the future):

This recent article on sex and marriage attracted more than 10,000 unique visitors to Tony Morgan’s site last week. I believe you’ll find some practical advice that many in our world will consider to be politically incorrect.

We all know what’s required to fall in love. A pulse. Falling in love is easy. But staying there? That’s something else entirely. With more than 1,500 matchmaker organizations in the United States, finding someone is easier than ever, but staying together seems to get more difficult every day. So. . . is it possible for two people to fall in love and actually stay there? Absolutely. Find out how in Andy Stanley’s 4-part series, Staying In Love.

Most of us want to spend time with our spouse, but most of us don’t spend time with our spouse. When we do get time together, a lot of us experience the classic, “What do you want to do? I don’t know, what do you want to do?”  In 2009, MarriedLife rolled out 6 Great Dates in the Great Date Experiment. Well, the experiment worked! So in 2010, we brought you the all-new Great Date Experience! If you missed one, click on the year and download an experience you won’t forget…oh yeah!

Your turn… What are some other resources you’ve used to improve your marriage?

    We are both leaders. My wife, Robin, leads a volleyball team in the off season, Bible Study Fellowship and our 3 wonderful children. I own a business and lead 5 teams of home remodeling crews, Boy Scouts, Venturing Crew and our 3 children. Our focus is to let God’s light shine through us in all of those activities. In order to do that we have to know Jesus and submit to Him. Robin and I talk about sharing the gospel with others and because of it we grow closer to each other.
    God Bless

  2. Damon, thanks for stopping by. Sounds like you guys have an active life and lots of opportunities to share the gospel with others. I love how it helps you two grow closer together (more couples need to partner in sharing the gospel with others).

    Erich, you should check out “What Did You Expect” by Paul David Tripp. It is probably the best book on marriage I’ve ever read! But it isn’t only good for marriage relationships. There is a lot of truth that can be applied to relationships in general. It goes to the heart of the issue! See what you think!

    • Lynn, Hey! I will take a look at that one (I love Tripp’s works). Also, another really good one is The Meaning of Marriage by Tim Keller (Spencer has actually read it twice recently and is getting other students to read it too). He’s really connecting to several books/sermons by Keller right now (reminds me of Luke). Hope you guys are doing well. Peace.
