Acting on insider information for financial gain can land you in jail for life. But acting on the insider tips from Dave and Jan Stoop can set your marriage free. The insider tips from these seasoned veterans of marriage counseling – the Stoops have clocked more than 20,000 hours counseling other couples -- transforms relationships from “good” to “great.” David and Jan Stoop draw on research, years of counseling experience and decades of married life, to summarize seven principles of great marriages. Better Than Ever: Seven Secrets to a Great Marriage ($19.95, Jordon House/Meredith Books, December 2007) offers insight that can dramatically increase the satisfaction level of any marriage.
Biblical wisdom, combined with counseling experience and more than 50 years of marriage, lifts the Stoop’s Better Than Ever above other relationship books. David and Jan offer seven marriage secrets to couples of all ages, at all levels of marital satisfaction. “What we’ve written here is designed to help you move your marriage in the right direction—to that place you dreamed about on your wedding day,” explain the co-authors and spouses in the introduction. “Pressures facing couples today may be different than those that faced our parents, but the winning principles remain the same. No matter the age of a couple, or the stage of marriage, things can improve. Your marriage can become better than ever.”
Each of the seven secrets revealed in Better Than Ever is supported with real life vignettes and practical advice for relationships. Dr. David and Dr. Jan Stoop’s seven secrets include:
David and Jan’s encouragement to married couples is heartfelt. “We have been married for more than 50 years,” they explain. “We’ve certainly had our times of struggle, so part of our learning about marriage comes from our own life experiences. At the same time, much of what we’ve learned has come from getting into the trenches with other couples and helping them create the marriages they’ve always wanted.” The Stoops are energized by helping couples create safe and secure relationships—truly great marriages where each partner looks forward to being together.
