“Best thing you can do for your future marriage is read this book together. Find a mentoring couple and WOW! It completely transformed our relationship into a healthy thriving God loving marriage. We went into this book, believing we got our relationship on track, but boy were we wrong– This book completely transformed how we communicate, how we love, listen etc. etc. it truly has been a blessing.”
Marissa and Daniel
“My husband and I went through Ready to Wed before we got married and we really enjoyed it. The book inspired lots of conversation with our mentor couple and prompted us to look at important facets of marriage that we hadn’t addressed before. I actually looked forward to reading and discussing each chapter because it allowed me to get to know my husband (and myself) better!”
Dr. Wayde Goodall
