|New from||Used from|
"With decades of experience in marriage ministry, Jeff and Chuck have written a much-needed book on mentoring. The Solution for Marriages is packed with helpful questions and assessments, giving those just starting the journey the tools they need to not only survive, but to thrive as a couple." (JIM DALY, President, Focus on the Family)
"The Solution for Marriages redefines the art of marriage mentoring!" (DR. PETER LARSON, President, Life Innovations, Inc.)
"The Solution for Marriages...provides the tools to confidently lead others in creating healthier marriages." (DAN T. CATHY, President and COO, Chick-fil-A, Inc.)
"One would be hard pressed to find a more informative and well-researched book on the topic of marriage mentoring..." (BRETT & KELLIE HURST, Co-Founders, Home Encouragement Ministries, Inc.)
"I wish I had this guide to help equip marriage mentors when I was in the pastorate. It provides a more in-depth and effective way than the traditional pre-marital counseling sessions with a pastor alone." (REV. BRUCE K. TERPSTRA, D.Min., Metropolitan District Superintendent of the C&MA)

I'm always fascinated by books that get beyond lofty theories and really get into the specifics of making positive changes that last. This book is true to that course... anyone who is already a marriage mentor or considering being one would definitely gain information and tools they could actually put to use.
Here's the bigger plus though -- we need more marriage mentors, and I think this book recognizes this. So many couples abandon their marriages too soon, without genuinely putting in the effort to strengthen their union and resolve difficulties. I think in part that's because they don't know where to turn... they are hungry for someone to show them a better path, but they don't know where to turn to get practical applicable advice.
If this book equips more mentors -- and I know it will -- then that's a good thing for all of us! Strong marriages make for stronger families and a stronger community.
Well done Jeff and Chuck!!
I am especially impressed how unlike other counseling books, this book is written with those with no formal training in mind (it doesn't seem to leave those educated out either). A Christian couple with no counseling training can take this book and have everything they need to begin mentoring. This makes it an excellent resource to equip more than just pastors to begin a marriage ministry in their church. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to mentor other marriages and to do pre-marital counseling with engaged couples. It has even helped my marriage as my wife and I reviewed it to begin mentoring.
I can't say enough good about it!
More than just information, this book supplies the Biblical principles and foundation for which any marriage can stand upon to be successful. It doesn't matter if it is your marriage or someone else's marriage you are trying to help, this book will be of invaluable to you.
I particularly liked how the authors broke the book up so that information is easy to find. This has turned into one of my favorite reference books in my counseling, and I have been counseling and mentoring marriages for over ten years.
