Love Works: Develop Healthy Relationships in a “Love Broken” World
by Holly and Philip Wagner
You already know that women and men are different . . . and those differences can make your marriage tricky--and some days, seemingly impossible! So what's the secret? To realize a healthy, passionate and life-giving relationship for the long haul you need . . .love. Not the fairy tale kind of love that lives "happily ever after" once a single measly dragon has been slain. (There's always more than one dragon in real life anyway, right?) The secret is a love that does the work of loving--day in and day out, never giving up or backing down.
In Love Works, Holly and Philip Wagner pull back the curtain on their nearly 30-year partnership and invite you to take an honest look at your own relationship. With humor and transparency they demonstrate how you can create an extraordinary and fulfilling relationship --the kind of real and remarkable everyday love that stands the test of time.
You will find that your dream marriage ... is truly a labor of love
