The Marriage Challenge
Everyone wants a marriage that matters. Everyone wants to go from GOOD to GREAT to EXCEPTIONAL. Notice the stops on our Marriage Continuum (above). Pretty simple, right? You say, "I DO..." and you start your marriage life. Everything's great. But at some point, we hit snags, challenges, obstacles, and in some cases, unthinkable tragedy. Maybe we started with good intentions and were on the cusp of a Great marriage... then boom.

It sounds pretty easy, but most people need to spark their imagination in a completely different way. Not through the left brain or right brain, but through our heart's eyes. When we created the Vision exercises in Marriage With Purpose we started with clear instructions to open your heart... quiet your head-chatter... and feel what you want the future to become.

Good marriages can sink to Struggling in the blink of an eye, while others stay in the boringly Average range for years. Some steadily move from Good to Great.
The Year of Wonder…
The Year That Was... December 2018. Wow, this year blew by fast. My wife, Jan, and I had an incredible year. A true, high-energy, conviction-driven partnership. December is a wonderful time to think back on your life, and look forward to fresh beginnings in the new year.
