Home Improvement Ministries The Marriage App: Unlocking the Irony of Intimacy

Wouldn't it be nice to simply download an App and have a more satisfying marriage? Well, the book, The Marriage App: Unlocking the Irony of Intimacy will take more than a download to give you the intimacy in marriage you have been longing for, but it will direct you to the One that is able to unlock the mystery. From their more than 30 years of marriage counseling and deep reverence for and dependence on God's word, Drs Paul and Virginia Friesen have given us a very biblical and practical App that can give us the marriage we have always desired. Try putting your spouse's desires ahead of your own, trust God's design for marriage, and give The Marriage App a try. Foreword by Elisabeth Hasselbeck..

Drs. Paul and Virginia Friesen have offered this world a deeply profound, yet fun and simple read in their book, The Marriage App. Marital issues which can seem so complicated, are distilled down throughout the chapters with highlighted pearls of wisdom and points of action (e.g. "When we know what would make our spouse feel loved but don't do it, the message sent is, 'I really don't care what you want - it's not that important to me." pg. 131). OUCH! So simply stated but strikes deep to the core of a million marital issues. I especially liked the stories of real couples with real issues and was able to learn from their mistakes and was built up by the examples of those who were doing many right things over many years (especially Bill and JoAnn near the end of the book). My favorite pearl of wisdom was on page 50, "Strong marriages are not built on 'personal satisfaction' as much as on knowledge, decisions, and sacrifice." This book is full of knowledge and provides a grid through which a couple can make decisions that will build up their marriage. Last, but not least, Paul and Virginia explain and lay out what God intended for us when we say, "I do." No one ever walks down the aisle planning on ending up divorced. This book provides the foundation, practical application and based in reality hope that we can have healthy marriages that weather the sunny days and the storms in life.
