“The difference between where you are today and where you’ll be five years from now will be found in the quality of books you’ve read.”
– Jim Rohn
I’m sure there are other factors that contribute to making a meaningful difference in your life besides the books you read, but I think there’s truth to this point. What you put your mind to learn and do will be a significant force in getting you from where you are now to where you want to be.
Whether you are enjoying your marriage and just want to ensure it remains on the right track or you are struggling through a difficult time, here are few book resources I hope will be helpful to you.
I polled several local therapists that I know and trust and asked what books for marriage/couples they like to recommend. I added their responses to my own list… here you go!
