Includes a one-year membership in Better Marriages.
This book helps build skills and rekindle the sparks that brought couples together in the first place. Each page contains a daily themed passage with suggestions for couple conversations. Connect as you explore topics relevant to your couple growth and relational health.
We all experience busy schedules and time and energy restraints. Every couple needs more time to talk together. 

Fifty-two conversations make it easy to share with each other and open new doors to intimacy.

Skills and ideas from a 60 year, successful, happy, sexy, marriage.

It’s about making your relationship work well so that you both feel connected, loved, and supported.
