I’m always looking for good marriage books to read and learn from. And one of the ways that I know it is a great marriage book is that it has a profound transforming affect on my own marital relationship.

Such is the case with Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love by Susan Johnson.

Johnson is the developer of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy, and I think her book would be helpful for so many couples to really get to the root of their issues. In the book she helps couples with “Seven Transforming Conversations:”

  1. Recognizing the Demon Dialogues
  2. Finding the Raw Spots
  3. Revisiting a Rocky Moment
  4. Hold Me Tight–Engaging and Connecting
  5. Forgiving Injuries
  6. Bonding Through Sex and Touch
  7. Keeping Your Love Alive

It’s a wonderful book and I highly recommend it.
