Book Details

Did you know that totally accepting your spouse is the best way for you to become a more complete and well-rounded individual? Have you ever wondered why you and your spouse seem to experience annoying short-circuits in your emotional connection at the worst possible times? Did you know there are effective tools that exist to help you and your spouse break through the seemingly impenetrable “wall” that every married couple inevitably hits? Well, "Balance of Passion" provides thorough answers to these and many other frequently asked questions about what it really takes to make a marriage work in the 21st century. "Balance of Passion’s" ultimate purpose is to help spouses discover how to create and maintain the safe-haven marriages they have always desired. As you begin reading, one of the first amazing surprises you will discover is that your personality is meant to exude character traits from both of your parents instead of only one of them. You will also learn that your childhood emotional programming, received primarily from your parents, caregivers, close relatives and peers, has much to do with the various types of emotional interactions you have with your spouse on a daily basis. In the heart of "Balance of Passion" you will discover how the development and sharing of more authentic feelings between you and your spouse does great wonders in enhancing your ability to develop and sustain a strong emotional connection between the two of you. In the latter portion of this informative and insightful book you will be instructed on how to genuinely improve communication, achieve the difficult task of becoming a more forgiving spouse, do personal work to help make you a more loving and lovable spouse, and finally, to trust God’s word and providence to help you produce a “miraculous marriage” that you and your spouse can enjoy for a lifetime. Composing "Balance of Passion" has tremendously contributed to the significant growth and development of my marriage. I am absolutely convinced that reading "Balance of Passion" and applying what you learn will produce the same wonderful results for your sacred union. Enjoy!

 

Book Excerpt

"There are so many things to love about Balance of Passion. One of my favorites is that Bryan was willing to be transparent and share some of his story about his own marriage, which showed what he has learned from personal experience. I am also extremely impressed with the fact that Bryan, a law school graduate, has been able to master many of the esoteric concepts of Imago and Emotion-Focused Therapies and present them in a simple yet comprehensive way in which any spouse could benefit. Balance of Passion is a must-read for all married couples!" -Ruby D., Author of Selected Poems and Writings
