We’re guessing you didn’t get married because you thought you would be miserable with the person you love. You got married because you thought you would have more joy with him or her. However, as you may have discovered, joy can be an elusive thing. Most of us have no idea what causes joy or how to revive it when it begins to fade.
In every marriage, there is a joy gap between those moments when we feel happy to be together. The longer that gap gets, the harder the marriage gets. When our joy gap gets too wide, intimacy is one of the first victims in our marriages.
Good News: You can have a joy-filled marriage!
Anchored in the latest brain science, 4 Habits of Joy-Filled Marriages is a new book giving you insights, exercises, and a plan for keeping your joy gap as small as possible.
Join co-authors Marcus Warner and Chris Coursey in this free webinar as they discuss how special events, social routines, and relational sex can keep playing together a priority and fill your marriage with joy.
For over 20 years Chris has been testing, creating and practicing brain-based solutions to make relationships work. While Chris is highly motivated to develop practical resources, Chris enjoys spending time with Jen and their two sons, Matthew and Andrew. The Coursey’s enthusiastically pass on the skills they missed growing up to their sons. In addition to building joy on the home front, Chris spends most of his time teaching, training, developing materials, fostering relationships, exercising and equipping God’s people to mature, so they live according to their faith and values. Chris is a published author with seven books in print including his latest, Transforming Fellowship: 19 Brain Skills That Build Joyful Community which is now translated into Korean. Chris travels the world equipping couples, ministry leaders, and churches in relational brain skills. Chris earned a B.A. in Sociology from Eastern Illinois University and then started working as a counselor working with children and families with severe trauma. Chris completed his Master’s Degree in Theological Studies from a Messianic Jewish Yeshiva called MBI, or Messianic Bible Institute, out of Virginia. Chris is also an ordained minister.
