Share the experience, accelerate the joy!

Help couples experience more joy in their marriage!

People get married because they believe they will experience more joy with the person they love. However, it does not take long to discover joy is an elusive thing. Most of us have no idea what causes joy or how to revive it when it begins to fade…until now!

Whether you gather together with some friends in the community or meet in your home, or you lead a group of couples in your church through this resource, we can assure you the result will be happy, happy marriages!

What is Involved?

Six weekly gatherings focus on shrinking the joy gap in marriages.

1. The Book is the Curriculum​

Over the course of the 6-week study, each couple will make their way through the book and discover what brain science tells us about the joy gap and how it affects their marriage, the four habits that will shrink the joy gap, great examples, and practical exercises to start building these habits into the relationship.

The weekly video recaps the week’s focused teaching and includes additional information not in the book.

2. Couples Gather Weekly with Other Couples

Yes, you can apply these 4 habits and begin to experience joy in your marriage. However, it is a proven fact that lasting change takes place best in community. Gathering with other couples weekly provides you the opportunity to share the experience and accelerate the joy as you form these habits alongside one another.

The weekly video prepares the way for group discussion and is modeled as the co-authors and their wives discuss the teaching and the habits from their own experience.

3. Couples Practice the Habits Together​

Practice may not make you perfect but it will shrink the joy gap in your marriage! Exercises are introduced throughout the book and during the 6-weekly gatherings. Couples will practice some exercises in the group and during the week to cultivate more joy.

The weekly video introduces exercises that will build the habit into the marriage and then co-author Chris Coursey and his wife, Jen, demonstrate the exercise. This prepares couples to implement the exercise with clarity and ease.

4. Couples Experience More and More Joy!​

This is the outcome people expected when they married the person they love. Armed with the knowledge of what causes joy and the brain science behind it, coupled with the development of these 4 habits, the outcome will exceed their expectations!

You will see it in the video demonstration: even the co-authors and their wives are experiencing more joy!
