Based on a sound biblical context and the proven 12-step model of recovery, Life Change for Couples brings scriptural principles into personal focus, to increase the emotional and spiritual health of both individuals in the marriage. Couples will build their own "toolkit" of nine memorable, life-changing principles that will continue to guide their daily relationship long after this workbook is completed.
Designed for use within guided small groups, the workbook moves individual participants to personal introspection, giving them a chance to record their thoughts, questions, and discoveries. Participants are then invited to interact with their discussion group and with their spouse, creating opportunity for growth and learning. Motivated couples can benefit from using this in-depth guide on their own as well.

For those people who really want to change and improve their lives, this proven 12 step model of recovery is the best process I've seen for giving people the tools that they need to make real, lasting change. It helps people come out from hiding behind their own pile of emotional garbage and take responsibility for their own choices and their own actions, which in turn causes others around them to change. This is a great tool and process to use throughout your entire life - I know I will.

I have read books and I have worked through many workbooks, but the Life Change for Couples is different because it takes the rich information of an in-depth book and melds it together with the effective self-examination of an introspective workbook. The outcome from this merge? My Life has changed_ My Marriage is healthier! If that was the only difference it would be worth the experience, but I experienced so much more than that, my relationships with my children is better, my relationships with friends are more effective and finally, I give people around me a break_ I'm not as angry as I have always been! I recognize the book alone is not the answer, it is the process and the timeless truth's that the Life Change for Couples walks me through. With a group of people and this material Your Life Change can happen too!

The principles in this workbook, when applied, provide the basis for a healthy marriage relationship that continues to grow from the inside out. I highly recommend it to all couples who are serious about pursuing a quality marriage.

davidmartinwalkerFort Worth, TXAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Warning! You will change yourself - not ur spouse!August 7, 2013davidmartinwalkerFort Worth, TXAge: 45-54Gender: maleMy wife and I took the marriage class at http://www.cityonahilldfw.com/ Church in Fort Worth, TX where James Reeves currently preaches. The class worked through this book over several months. The best experience for my wife and I was realizing our own struggles and weaknesses and not focusing on what we want to change about the other person. We looked forward to the couple talk every week so we could be open and honest with each other of what we want to change within ourselves. This vulnerability brought us closer together and prompted a natural team spirit to want to help your spouse with their struggles instead of pointing fingers and criticizing. My wife and I still have struggles in our marriage but we now choose to tackle them as a team instead of attacking each other. If you are ready to be open and honest with yourself in order to improve your relationship with your spouse then this is the book for you.
