THE 5 LOVE LANGUAGES


This is an incredibly helpful book and tool which helps you discover how you and your spouse give and receive love. Once you understand this, it is much easier to show your spouse how you love and appreciate them in the way that matters TO THEM. The book is written by Gary Chapman, and I highly recommend it.

FOR WOMEN ONLY / FOR MEN ONLY


These 2 books provide great insights on each gender and why we do the things we do. These books are not just good ideas – they are based on research and studies, and help us to make sense of each other in marriage. For Women Only is written by Shaunti Feldhand, and For Men Only is written by Shaunti & her husband, Jeff.

FLAG PAGE


This is a resource for couples to use to help them better understand themselves
and their spouse. While it’s great to get advice that applies to all marriages, it’s even better to find tools to help you address your own personal situation.

That is what The Flag Page will do. It helps you to figure out motivations, passions, and things that drive you – or your spouse – crazy. While there are lots of personality tests out there, this one is the best one I’ve come across specific to marriage.

CORE VALUES WORKSHOP

This is a virtual workshop provided by Tony & Alisa of ONE Extraordinary Marriage. The workshop helps you to determine what your core values are as a couple and/or family, which is helpful for making decisions and being on the same page as a couple. This is a valuable tool to help you gain clarity and work as a team.

THE DATING DIVAS

This is a super fun blog full of ideas, resources, games, and more to strengthen your marriage. Many of the ideas and resources are free, including some great printables. Others are paid products, so you can pick and choose what is most
helpful to you.

ONE EXTRAORDINARY MARRIAGE PODCAST

This one is my favorite marriage podcasts. Tony & Alisa share candidly about their experiences, as well as provide helpful tips & suggestions for couples.

CONNECT LIKE YOU DID WHEN YOU FIRST MET

This ebook is written by Tony & Alisa of ONE Extraordinary Marriage. They provide some basic ground rules for communication which can benefit all of us.

The book also contains a list of 101 questions are intended to help you revive your connection with your spouse. The questions cover a wide range of topics including dreams, dating one another, kids, financial issues, sex, and much more. In addition, there are some bonus questions at the end which will provide
with even more things to discuss.

LAUGH YOUR WAY TO A BETTER MARRIAGE


This is a marriage seminar you can attend, or you can purchase the DVD set to watch on your own. Mark is not your typical marriage conference speaker – he uses lots of humor and personal stories in his speaking. Yet he gives important truths and information you can apply in your marriage. Also, while he is a Christian and a pastor, his material is not “preachy” – so it’s great for people who are believers, but also for those who may not be.

WEEKEND TO REMEMBER

This is a weekend marriage conference that is held across the country. It is fairly intense, and provides a lot of information for you and your spouse. If you’re looking for something super relaxing, this is probably not the best choice. However, if you want to dive deep into your marriage and hear from some great speakers, this is a good option. {Bonus: if you are in ministry, you can receive a full or partial scholarship for the cost of the event.}
