Congratulations! You are a top-notch, smart, and wise couple who wants the BEST for your life and love! You are a dedicated couple, and your decision to be proactive will bless and build your marriage, family and future!
We have seen the power of being proactive in marriage. Our newest book for couples: Marriage Meet Ups His and Hers 52 week devotional planner was written in celebration of our 40th wedding anniversary and released shortly after our 41st anniversary! We highly recommend this process to you because weekly strategy sessions have kept us on the same page for 4 decades! People often ask us, “What is the secret to your long lasting love?” Honestly, one of the vital components has been our weekly, “Monday Morning Marriage Meeting” We finally wrote up the well-honed weekly worksheets we have used for decades, added in the best of the devotional and practical resources we have used to stay connected, in love, and productive! We have also added the extra resources that have helped us develop a strong family even while living a full, busy and focused life. We also share the “back stage pass” of helpful hints that keep us laughing, enjoying life and most of all– overcoming obstacles, creatively conquering conflict and tackling tough transitions TOGETHER!
We know that our emotions follow our decisions so part of romancing your spouse is finding a way to make great choices together. We
are convinced that couples who have a weekly Marriage Meet Up will:
- Gain insights into how your spouse likes to live — and love.

We can help. We have seen these weekly Marriage Meet Ups WORK WELL to move couples– including ourselves—forward, upward, and onward toward creating the marriage you have hoped and dreamed of having.
Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction. –
