Publisher's Summary

Driven to create a resource to help those struggling in marriage, after nearly losing his own over 10 years ago, William Taylor has developed a comprehensive program to help couples avoid divorce and how to be happy in marriage.

How do we rekindle the spark in our marriage? Many marriages start off strong, with couples spending most of their time together, and falling deeply in love with little effort. Over time though many of us come to a place where the “honeymoon is over” is over. The romance can begin to fade as the flowers, cards, letters and romantic gestures begin to slow down. Helping couples to rekindle and sustain the spark to create excitement again in their marriage again is one of the benefits of this marriage program.

How do we reconnect in our marriage? Some couples get to a place marriage where somehow they end up living parallel lives both doing their own thing somehow going from doing everything together to doing almost nothing together. We don't talk to our spouse openly and deeply anymore, not letting them inside our hearts and minds. The long conversations which once drew us together can become a distant memory… Helping couples to find a path back to reconnection, to overcome marriage problems by explaining what causes us to lose our connection, and how to create a lasting connection is another benefit this program brings.

How do we renew our marriage and start over? Even though it was over ten years ago, I still remember it like it was yesterday. I had no idea how I had gotten there-standing in my living room, the house packed in boxes, unsigned divorce papers in my hand. I remember not being able to look at the pictures of my kids with their beaming, playful, innocent smiles. It killed me inside to feel the sheer pain of loss as it finally hit me that I had reached the end of my marriage. After a year of hard work on both sides, my wife and I found restoration and renewal and we fell in love even more deeply. I shudder when I think of how very different my family's lives would have been had we stayed apart. That is what has driven me to develop a program to both show couples how to save a marriage and how to be happy in marriage. Providing a path back to renewal and starting over is one of the purposes of this marriage program.

How can this program help “make our marriage work”? Imagine turning the key to your car, and it doesn't turn on. You know that "something" inside is broken but figuring out exactly what and how to fix it to get the car working again is beyond many of us…The same is true for our marriage problems. Whether that one component is feeling understood, accepted, loved, appreciated, beautiful, respected, supported, heard, desired or another component, if even one piece is broken, often our marriage will not work. It's when we know what pieces are broken and how to get them working again that we can make our marriage work again.

What does Vol. 1 cover?

  • Why marriage seems easy at first, how to reconnect, how to bring back feelings of acceptance and how we fall in and out of love over time
  • How our expectations, life's stressors and the busyness life can affect our marriage and how and why many couples often find themselves living parallel lives
  • How and why over time, our love for our partner can fade, how a happy marriage can be created, and how our beliefs and mood our marriage.
  • How to effectively communicate (2 sessions) and How to manage conflict effectively (2 sessions)

Great Audio Book

What made the experience of listening to How to Have a Happy and Fulfilling Marriage, Vol. 1 the most enjoyable?

I think the way the author writes from his own perspective and struggles in marriage, and then throws in interesting stories, and great information really makes it enjoyable to read. Also the narrator is pretty easy to listen too!

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the story, because it is a story that I have lived out in my own marriage, and is one that is full of hope. That there is away and the hundreds of little questions that are answered along the way, makes it great.

What does Jason Leech bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Again, he really has a good voice. I've heard other audio books that sounded very dry and boring, and I had to kinda "force myself" to keep listening, This guys voice sounds really good and easy to listen to. I don't know if I would have read it the way he does.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There was a moment where the wife just feels like giving up, and doesn't care anymore, she thinks "fine let him do his own thing" and it just took me back to where I'd reach a similar place in my own marriage.

Any additional comments?

Thought this was really helpful in letting me see why things are the way they are in my marriage and then how I can change them for the better.
