Summary

Practical steps for making marriage last a lifetime...

Two noted relationship experts, Wally Goddard and James Marshall, offer down-to-earth advice for any couple who wants to strengthen their marriage and make it last a lifetime. In this important book the authors outline their six-step program - commit, grow, nurture, understand, solve, and serve - that has proven to be effective. Using a bountiful garden as a metaphor for a healthy marriage, the book encourages couples to invest time in growing their relationship, shine the light of encouragement on each other, deal with "bugs" and "thorns", and share time and resources to make the whole world blossom.

Compassion not Contempt

One of the best books I have invested my time to understand. I spent time rewinding the audible book to cement the idea of compassion. I have read many marriage books over the 26 year of our marriage. This book is one of the first book that focuses on love and compassion. I began studying John Gottman in 2005, then again 2008 and 2015. Gottman includes a love map and love lab. This book goes hand in hand with John Gottman.
Many virtuous lessons learned. I plan to listen to this book again soon. I have seen beautiful results already, our children have been blessed as well.
Thank you!
