Editorial Reviews


In this work, Ed and Janice Hird bring together their vast experience in working with couples, their faith, and their own personal growth and learning. They put all of this into the context of Bowen Family Systems Theory to make a readable and useful book for the reader. Highly recommended.

—Dr. Ronald W. Richardson,

Having utilized universal psychological/ spiritual truths to do their own couple work as related in their book For Better For Worse, Rev. Hird and his wife Janice have related in an authentic humorous story form their marital journey challenges of staying committed in their couple relationship of forty years. These truths can guide and serve to support you in doing your work to remain in a loving committed marital relationship as well as long as you are willing to do your work in your marital relationship “for better for worse.”

—Bonnie Chatwin,

I have known Ed and Janice for over forty years and have watched them grow, mature and blossom in their own marriage. This book is a great resource for couples who yearn for the Better. It focuses on the four key marriage principles: rediscovering strengths, celebrating differences, valuing conflict, and balancing closeness and personal space.

—John Cline M.D., B.Sc.

This book is both deeply thought-through as well as practically thought-provoking. It is based soundly on the proven, personal experience of the married authors as well as on their extensive research and their proven ministry in helping others to strengthen their marriages. We thoroughly commend it to you.

—Rev. John (and Anne) Coles

I highly recommend this book to any couple who want a better marriage.

—Richard E. Campbell Ph.D.,

I have known Ed for almost fifty years. In his life he is constantly seeking to apply truth. In this practical book, he shares trustworthy advice for any marriage.

– David C. Bentall,

This book records the honest, true and “trials and errors” accounts of how Ed & Janice discover the keys to their lasting marriage relationship. It is filled with records of life experiences and honest evaluations of the real questions that every married couple needs to face. It is worth reading, especially for married couples who long to develop a lasting and loving relationship.

—The Most Rev. Yong Ping Chung

A true authentic, non-judgmental story-telling masterpiece which will bring healing to many broken marital relationships, as well as to enrich many marriages. Ed and Janice’s forty years of blessed marriage will help many couples to discover the keys to a lasting, fulfilling marriage.

—Rt. Rev. Dr. Silas Ng

You will not put this book down when you hold it and I promise you that you will never, never, never be the same again. I highly endorse this terrific book.

—Rev. Canon Dr. Medad Birungi

For Better, For Worse is an excellent book that every couple should read.

—Rev. Giulio and Lina Gabeli,

The ideas in this book will help so many people. Your writing style is wonderful and authentic. I am encouraged with your powerful concepts and stories.

—Dr. Gil Stieglitz

For Better For Worse is another “health” book from the Hird pen, building on two previous books looking at the health of the nation and church in Battle for the Soul of Canada, and personal health in Restoring Health: Body, Soul, and Spirit.

—Rev. Dr. Rod Ellis,
