Marriage Underdogs
When Chris was in his sophomore year off college, he and his girlfriend, now wife, unexpectedly got pregnant while they were pursuing degrees at two separate universities, three hours apart. When Chris became a father, he made a commitment to learn how to develop himself into a man his new young family could be proud of. Chris attributes his success and the person he is today to the counselors and spiritual advisors that helped him to successfully conquer his demons, which came in the form of substance using behaviors, self-doubt, shame, and a lack of accountability for his personal choices.
Relationship Counseling Tools


As the divorce rate is around 50% in the U.S., this book is essential in helping thousands of couples save their marriages or relationships. Many couples decide to go to couples or marriage counseling, online or in person, to save their relationship, not realizing that most couples do not enter therapy equipped with the skills needed to succeed in couples counseling because they are unaware of what to expect from the couples counseling process. Finding Your Relationship Fix is essential for helping any couple succeed through the therapy process. This book, besides illustrating the therapy process, will also give you various tools to solve the most common issues that lead to relationship dissatisfaction or divorce.
