In Just Married, Catholic therapist Greg Popcak and family life coach Lisa Popcak offer newlyweds a master plan for growing a strong bond in the first five years of marriage.
"The most important thing in problem-solving isn't actually problem-solving; it's taking care of your partner so you come out the other end of the disagreement closer than you were when you started it."
"A hopeful vision of marriage rooted in faith and nourished by prayer." Read what Tim Muldoon, Christopher West and others are saying about Just Married.
