In the spirit of providing tools you can use at home to strengthen your relationships and your life, I'm happy to launch Love Builder, a free app for iPhone® and Android™ to play with your partner. Love Builder creates opportunities for couples to work together to improve their relationship. Couples, on a daily basis, tell each other actions they’ve done to improve the relationship as well as what they appreciate about their partner. The performed actions become points for the relationship that can be used to build their virtual home. Download Love Builder from the iTunes Store and Google Play. Take a few minutes to register and try it out.
