Review quote

"This is one of the most practical, sensible and accessible resources available for anyone who wants to create enduring intimacy." Joseph Grenny, "New York Times" Bestselling author of "Crucial Conversations" and "Change Anything" "Often it's the simple daily doses of small loving actions that nurture a relationship. "The Two-Minute Marriage Project" is a celebration of the little things that can make love last. Filled with the latest marriage research, personal stories, and anecdotes from happy partners, this book contains everyday tools that can actually make a difference." Margaret Paul, PhD, best-selling author of "Do I Have To Give Up Me To Be Loved By You", "Healing Your Aloneness", and "Inner Bonding". http: // "Most self-help books are written by clinicians. Few topics in the relationship arena are examined by those in the 'trenches of life.' Heidi Poelman is a rather typical middle class American wife and mother. She writes as one experiencing marriage as it is with highs and lows yet her approach is about what works. Her positive style offers suggestion after suggestion to the reader about how to give and receive love in ways that offer hope and direction to all those wanting to be happily married. This is a wonderful book, full of little gems and nuggets of wisdom. I endorse it for those young and old who want to stay content in a committed relationship." J. Kent Griffiths, PhD Marriage and Family Therapist"show more
