The Tools for a Great Marriage Book

Having equipped engaged and married couples for more than 40 years, Willie Batson has written two books containing marital tools that can help any couple build a satisfying and lasting relationship. “Couples enter marriage with their own bag of tools,” says Willie, “but are frustrated by their attempts at fixing things. They either have the wrong tools or do not use the tools properly.” Having the right tools in your marital tool bag can help you build and sustain a great marriage.
