Derryl Venters, a retired educator, drew on her forty-three years of marriage and experience as a teacher to write a book on building strong marriages. Her conversations with other couples who have been married forty to sixty years gave her unique insight into the building blocks of successful marriages. Making Love That Lasts is developed around the belief that twenty-one days of focus on the marriage can form the habit of making lasting and positive changes in couples’ relationships. During the twenty-one days, topics such as forgiveness, money, change, love, prayer, and respect are covered from the perspective of successful marriages. Included in the book are stories about couples and the challenges of their lives that warm the heart and lead to understanding the topics. Making Love That Lasts is an easy read that encourages the soul and lays the foundation for lasting love.
