About Strengths Based Marriage
One of the biggest obstacles to a vibrant, resilient marriage is a lack of understanding of yourself and of your spouse. In Strengths Based Marriage, MarriageToday founder and CEO Jimmy Evans and Gallup® Certified Strengths Coach Allan Kelsey give you the tools you need to dismantle that hurdle and develop a deeper and richer relationship.
Applying the revelatory concepts from the popular Clifton StrengthsFinder® assessment to marriage, Evans and Kelsey break new ground in helping you understand yourself and your partner. With chapters on “Stopping the Cycles of Pain,” “Speaking Love to Your Spouse’s Heart,” and “Secrets of Successful Marriages,” the book details practical ways to apply these profound insights in your marriage every day.
And as a bonus, with your purchase of the book you’ll receive access to more than two hours of exclusive video content revealing how to reach your marriage’s full potential. Utterly practical and deeply insightful, Strengths Based Marriage will forever change the way you see yourself, your spouse, and your marriage.
“Over the last decade, the StrengthsFinder assessment has transformed the worlds of business and leadership. In this book, Evans and Kelsey apply these findings to marriage, and the results are fantastic.”
