Reviews of 15 Minute Marriage Makeover, Group Workshops & Some Bonus Action

By Dustin | Book & Product Reviews

Wow.  Just Wow.

Thank you all SO much for the incredible reaction to my first e-book!

Since releasing 15 Minute Marriage Makeover on Monday, Engaged Marriage has seen record levels of traffic and I’ve received so many emails, tweets and Facebook messages from folks telling me they’re enjoying the book.

Some particularly ambitious couples have already started putting the first several daily “challenges” into action and are seeing the benefits in their relationship.

That’s what it’s all about!

Gotta Love Those Pro-Marriage Friends

I’ve also been honored by the support and enthusiasm received from my fellow marriage and family bloggers.  We’ve shared several projects and many struggles together over the past 18 months, and it’s really cool to find such solid support from these relationship experts.

I wanted to highlight a few of the reviews that have been published around the web the past few days about 15 Minute Marriage Makeover.  As you’ll see, many of these authors have shared some fantastic additional insights and advice alongside their book reviews.

How Much Time Does Sex Really Take, Anyway?

This post on Intimacy in Marriage holds no punches about our excuses for limiting intimacy with our spouse.  Julie knows her stuff about Christian sexuality, and I’m proud to hear how she feels 15 Minute Marriage Makeover fits into a happy marriage.

Make Over Your Marriage in 15 Minutes a Day

If you are familiar with Lori Lowe and Life Gems for Marriage, you know that she puts a lot of research and thought into every post to provide real value to married couples.  Regardless of whether you care about my book, you should read this post and take Lori’s advice to heart!

Also if you’re reading this on Wednesday morning, you still have time to enter a giveaway for a free copy!

Will You Invest 15 Minutes a Day in Your Marriage?

I am SO proud to have the endorsement of Mandi from Motherhood Your Way (and Life Your Way).  In this post, Mandi shares some really interesting stats about marriage and the need to make the effort to stay connected to our spouse for the long haul. Don’t miss it!

A 15 Minute Marriage Makeover Review

Stu Gray and I started blogging about marriage around the same time, and I have a ton of respect for him and the wisdom he shares through experience.  This post is a straight-up review of 15 Minute Marriage Makeover, but Stu does a great job of summing up concisely what it’s about and who it’s for (I sometimes have trouble being concise 🙂 )!

An Interview With @EngagedMarriage Plus A Give Away That Could Lead To More Hanky Panky

This was a really fun and in-depth interview I did with my friend Andy Fogarty of Destination Thrive to discuss Engaged Marriage and my other major project promoting couples fitness at Fit Marriage.  This is a video interview so you can see me on camera opening up about why I do all of this stuff and also the business lessons I’ve learned along the way.

You can win a free copy of 15 Minute Marriage Makeover AND a free membership to our Thrive90 Fitness program for married couples…enter by Thursday!

How About Some Group Support?

Living the Sacrament

This isn’t actually a blog post but a really cool project that’s getting ready to start.  I saw this Facebook status yesterday from the leader of this Christian online community supporting Natural Family Planning:

I think this is SO awesome!

PLEASE NOTE: If you would like to create a group that will work through the 28 days of 15 Minute Marriage Makeover together, please contact me and we will work out a great group discount.  I think this is such a powerful way to support others in our church, online community, friendship circle, family or other group setting!

Don’t Miss the Bonuses!

I’ve had several people email me to say that they were surprised to receive a bunch of cool bonus materials when they downloaded 15 Minute Marriage Makeover.  There’s a lot of information on the landing page for the book, so I can see how this could get overlooked.

To be clear, when you buy the e-book, you also get all five of these great bonuses…for free!

Bonus 1 – Interview with Dr. Gary Chapman, author of The Five Love Languages

In my audio interview with the one and only Dr. Chapman, we talk about a variety of important topics for married and engaged couples. These include how couples should deal with personality differences, what to do when you start to lose the “in love” feeling, his advice for a great sex life, and how to deal with your Love Languages over the course of a marriage.

Bonus 2 – “Just the Two of Us” audio program with Tony DiLorenzo, co-author of Stripped Down

In this session, Tony and I share our top tips and personal experiences on the topic of date nights with a real focus on finding creative ways to enjoy date nights at home when you can’t get away.

Bonus 3 – “Take the Lead” and “Change of Scenery” audios from Stripped Down by Tony & Alisa DiLorenzo

In these audio versions from two of my favorite portions of Stripped Down, Tony and Alisa share in-depth advice on two important topics related to improving your intimacy and sex life.

Bonus 4 – “Financial Personalities & Being a Man or Woman with Your Money” audio from Get Naked by Derek Sisterhen

Financial coach Derek Sisterhen shares an audio version from a vitally important part of his book Get Naked to help you understand your financial personalities and how to work together as husband and wife to enjoy financial success.

Bonus 5 – More Time Now by Dave Navarro

This is a freely available resource by time management expert Dave Navarro, and I think it’s too good not to include it for you. This book will show you how to invest one hour per week to free up over 1,000 hours per year. It’s the real deal.

I personally selected these bonus materials because I think they will really help you. With the exception of More Time Now, which is a short e-book, all of these materials will be provided to you in mp3 audio format so you can listen to them at your convenience.

Thank You!

Thanks once again for all of your support and enthusiasm about this project.  It was a lot of work but your feedback makes it all worthwhile.

Thanks for being part of the Engaged Marriage community.

15 Minute Marriage Makeover – Refresh Your Relationship, Add Sizzle to Your Sex Life & Be Happier in Just Minutes a Day

By Dustin | Book & Product Reviews

It’s here!  I’m super excited today to share with you my first e-book, which was written specifically with the Engaged Marriage community in mind.

The roots of 15 Minute Marriage Makeover literally go back to the very beginning of this site over 18 months ago when I decided it was time that someone create a resource to help busy couples take your marriages from good to fantastic.  Since that time, I’ve had the pleasure of interacting with hundreds of you and learning about your biggest constraints and desires.

And as I realized that Bethany and I shared most of the same struggles and aspirations in our own marriage, it also occurred to me that we’ve had a lot of success and learned some valuable lessons that would help other couples.  You can read our story and the specifics behind how you helped shaped 15 Minute Marriage Makeover on the book’s home page.

Check Out the Book & Grab a Free Sample

Rather than getting into detail here about the e-book, I’d ask that you please click here and go read all about it. If you decide you’d like to purchase it, you can take advantage of a very special introductory price that will only be offered this week.

While you’re there, you can grab a free excerpt from the book to see if it’s something that you think will benefit your marriage.  Of course, I think you will. 🙂

If you want the Cliff ‘s Notes version of what you’ll find when  you click over, here you go:

  • 15 Minute Marriage Makeover will help you take your marriage from good to fantastic, especially if you are really busy.
  • It will show you how to have Communication that Counts, Real Romance for Real Busy Couples, Better Sex & Deeper Intimacy and how to Control Your Finances…Together.
  • You’ll love the book and your spouse will love you for buying it to share together.
  • It comes with five other awesome marriage-enhancing bonuses.
  • It’s available at a really nice introductory price until Friday, March 11th at 11:59 p.m. CST.
  • It comes with a 100% money-back guarantee with no strings attached so there’s no risk to you.

    I shared the book with the early notification list over the weekend, and I have been SO blessed by the great feedback I’ve received in just the first few days. It’s already made all the effort involved worth it to me.

    Thank You

    I am so excited to share this resource with you and your marriage.

    This book definitely would not have been possible without all of the feedback I’ve received here on the site, through email and on Facebook and Twitter.  The Engaged Marriage community is simply awesome, and I know that if 15 Minute Marriage Makeover gives you even a fraction of the help, encouragement and joy you’ve provided me over the past 18 months that it will be a huge success.

    Thank You for your incredible support!

    P.S. – If you’d like to share the book with your friends or family, you can simply ask them to visit which will take them directly to the details about the book.
