By Winston T. Smith
Handle Small Irritations in Your Marriage Before They Turn into Big Problems
Using discussion questions, small group exercises, vignettes, Bible study, and relationship-building activities, this interactive ten-week course gives couples the invaluable experience of applying and living the principles from the book Marriage Matters. The leader’s notes in the backprovide extra content and direction for pastors, counselors, and mentors as they work with couples in small groups and in individual counseling sessions.
Winston T. Smith, MDiv, a counselor and faculty member at the Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation (CCEF), has extensive experience as a marriage and family counselor and teaches seminary students how to counsel couples. He is the author of the book Marriage Matters and the minibooks Divorce Recovery, Help for Stepfamilies, Help! My Spouse Committed Adultery, The Problem with Masturbation, Who Does the Dishes?, and Burned Out.
"It is impossible to capture the genius of this outstanding book in a few short sentences. Winston demonstrates how we can turn our ordinary marital disappointments into opportunities for growth in love, faith, and intimacy. Rich in exegetical insight, exquisite theology (don't miss the chapters on conflict and division: superb!), and warm pastoral insights all presented in a simple and flowing style, this book can help to make your marriage sing. My only regret is that I did not surrender the marriage course to this wise man much, much sooner."
- John Bettler, Former Executive Director of the Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation
"Through his own transparency as a husband and his expertise as a counselor, Winston Smith offers very rich, yet very practical insight on how to function relationally from a divine frame of reference. Marriage Matters brings the rich theology of Scripture from the abstract to the real- life, from the cerebral to the experiential, offering couples amazing truth that holds the potential to completely reshape their view of relationship. Very refreshing. Very encouraging!"
- Jeremy Lelek, M.A., L.P.C., President, Association of Biblical Counselors
