The Marriage Turnaround Book and Testimonies

If you're married, you realize that your marriage could be so much more than it currently is. You may not feel the need for a 90 degree shift; perhaps you see the need for a mere 5 degree change of course. Regardless how needy your marital relationship is, the ideas presented in The Marriage Turnaround are presented to move your marriage toward great. The Marriage turnaround is not just for couples who may be struggling, its for every couple: pre-marrieds, newlyweds, married with kids, empty-nesters. And, this is the place to share your ideas, questions and a place to be encouraged by peers.

Here's what readers of The Marriage Turnaround are saying:

100% the best marriage book I have ever read and I have read plenty! I am a Christian Counselor and have 30+ marriage books that I have reviewed and would put them all aside and recommend this one. The only thing I add is that it tells you like it is and you must be ready to hear it or it will not do your marriage any good.  T.M.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!!!, Every couple should read this book!! I have read it 3 times and have learned something new every-time. In this book Mitch brings out every myth us humans have made up about marriage. This isn't another "how to" book, it is a blueprint for a great marriage! This book is one of the things that saved my marriage. God obviously is the One who restored my marriage, but this book helped make me a better husband and I needed radical change in the way I was as a husband. This book isn't just for couples who are separated, on the verge of divorce, or even in trouble at all, this book is for every couple in every marriage! Even if your marriage is full of bright and shining moments you'll be surprised with what this book can and will teach you. Mitch has taken marriage and opened every layer of it to reveal how something as simple as changing our thinking can improve every marriage. If you're married or thinking about being married I HIGHLY recommend buying this book. It is bar none the best book on marriage that has ever been written.  - C.V. -S.D.

I really enjoyed reading this book, and don't let the title deceive you - this book is great for couples who are looking to strengthen their relationships, not just save it. 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful:A Terrific Marriage Resource! A Couples' Reading Group Pick!, By Stacey L.V., NV

It pays to listen. This book has been an answer to prayer. My wife and I were on the verge of separation if not worse. After seeing the movie Fireproof, I went to to buy the book, when it gave me the option or suggestion of this book. Something inside me told me to get this book as well. Let me tell you it has paid off, not only are we still together but by reading this book and by the grace of the Almighty God, I found a renewed life for my wife. By R. A, CA

The Marriage Turnaround is worth the investment.
Awesome book - really enjoyed reading it!,

Mitch Temple's "The Marriage Turnaround" is an incredible non-fiction read. This book educates, enlightens and inspires. The quotes that begin each chapter will make you laugh, cry and contemplate profound insights from various personalities. The writing tactfully and frankly discusses various marital issues, weaknesses and strengths, offering hope for couples at any stage of marriage whether successful or not. The only thing missing from this book is a discussion guide. Even so, I highly recommend it as a couples book group pick!  R.S., WV

Very timely and well-written.  I enjoyed this book and will use the suggestions in my own marriage. I will also order this book for some other people I know who are going through rough spots in their marriage. Mr. Temple does a good job of dispelling many of the myths that pop-culture has foisted on marriage. Some of the other marriage books out there are more "theory-driven." This one is more practical. It gives me hope for my own marriage because the suggestions don't seem all that hard to implement. Also because the author adopts a hopeful tone. D.P., NM

I'm not satisfied with where it is, I want it to be the best it can be because God gave me my wife and marriage as a gift. I'm determined to honor that gift. Do I fail? Sure. Often? Yes. B…

This workshop is a low cost solution for churches and organizations and is an answer to a common dilemma- "we need to do something for couples but don't have time and money".  This workshop accomplishes what other seminars and marriage events takes 2 days to accomplish at a fraction of the cost. Couples love it because its a small investment of time and money but with big results. For more information click here.

Mitch Temple: Connecting People and Opening Paths Across the Christian Market

Every path into the Christian market winds through denominations, emphases, influencers, regions, churches, business models, mindsets, ministries, media, organizations, channels . . . and decision-makers.  

To successfully, sensibly reach the Christian market, therefore, calls for a guide to its opportunities—and to its gatekeepers.

From 25 years across the Evangelical landscape—from large, far-reaching resources such as Focus on the Family and Family Life, to decades of church service, to the one-on-one of Christian counseling—Mitch Temple has the view, the strategies, and the relationships that connect dots for non-profit and for-profit projects. On his clients’ behalf, he operates not to “land big fish” but to wisely, effectively help reach right people, places, and groups—like pennies in a slot.
