What Others Are Saying:

“I’m going through a tough situation in my marriage and had even reached a point where I wanted to divorce my wife. However, after reading Peggy’s article, I recalled all the good things my wife has been doing, and I think they outweigh the negative ones. I will definitely try these suggestions.”
–F. O.

“We were married last month, and wanted to thank you for the wonderful article you wrote about positive and negative words. It really affected us. It helped me understand why just a handful of nitpicking comments from my wife could weigh me down so heavily—especially because she is generally affirming. Now, it all makes more sense. We are fasting from negative comments and practicing giving out more positive ones. We are so grateful to learn these life-changing truths now, as we begin our life together.”
–Josh R.

“Until I read Peggy’s article, “Positive and Negative Words”, I never knew that it took more positive comments to outweigh a negative one. But I did know that the negative comments from my spouse are the ones I remember most. Following the suggestions could make the difference between a relationship that flourishes and one that doesn’t last.”
