Imagine a marriage with complete intimacy, vulnerability, transparency and trust. Imagine a marriage rooted in faith, friendship and mutual fulfillment. Imagine a marriage with amazing sex, but where great sex is only the icing on the cake. This might all sound too good to be true, but it's actually what God designed marriage to be, and He doesn't want you settling for anything less.
Having a "Naked Marriage' is about much more than just nakedness in the bedroom (although that's part of the fun). It means being naked emotionally and spiritually as well as physically. It also means undressing all the misconceptions our culture has used to cover God's original, beautiful design for marriage and rediscovering all marriage can be. You and your spouse can have a thriving, Naked Marriage with a lifetime of love and laughter together. This book will show you how.

Dave Willis, author, speaker, and father of four boys, talks biblically and practically about how to raise a generation of boys who are champions, encouragers, and respecters of women.
In the #metoo and #churchtoo era, with so many men and boys continuing to make the same mistakes, we have to ask: Where are we going wrong? And perhaps more importantly, how do we raise up men who will break this cycle?
As the father of four boys, relationship coach and author Dave Willis has studied this issue deeply, concluding that if we are to raise boys to respect girls--and not end up with men who say they respect women but whose actions reveal otherwise--we must go back to the heart of things. Or, more specifically, we must go back to our own hearts.
In Raising Boys Who Respect Girls, Willis helps readers inventory the blind spots that lead to accidental forms of disrespect, showing how to root out issues in our own hearts before we inadvertently pass along these same issues to our boys. He also teaches readers how to cultivate a healthy respect for God and for themselves as created in his image, as well as a similar respect for others. Full of scripture, research, age-specific tools, and conversation models, this book offers a practical strategy for mindful parents to first embody the right principles themselves and then teach them to their sons.
This book has power, but it’s not because of anything new or original. It has power simply because it’s based on the timeless truths of God’s word. He created marriage and He created you, so His plan for your marriage is perfect and within your reach!
One of the most effective ways to build a strong marriage is to build a solid foundation before you say, "I do." This book will show you how to do it.

En nuestra cultura acelerada y obsesionada con el éxito, somos constantemente tentados a perseguir cosas que carecen de importancia. Hemos sido condicionados a valorar las posesiones sobre las personas, nuestra posición por encima de las relaciones y a nosotors mismos por encima de Dios. Pero la realidad es la siguiente: Dios creó el amor para que sea el centro de nuestras vidas.

No existe un llamado más alto en la tierra que el de amar y ser amado. Es tiempo de aprender LasSiete leyes del amor, y priorizar el amor por sobre todas las demás búsquedas. Todo lo demás no tiene sentido.
Essential Principles for Building Stronger Relationships
“The Seven Laws of Love is insightful, compelling, inspiring, grounded, and immeasurably practical. We love this book! Everyone needs to read it. Don’t miss out on its powerful message.” —Drs. Les & Leslie Parrott, authors of Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts
In our fast-paced, success-obsessed culture, we’re constantly tempted to chase after things that don’t matter. We’ve been conditioned to value possessions over people, status over relationships, and ourselves over God.
But the reality is this: God created love to be the centerpiece of our lives.
In The Seven Laws of Love, Dave Willis makes the case for a love revival and proves that in returning to a life of love we have no greater model than the one who is love himself.
In Dave’s humorous, touching, down-to-earth style, The Seven Laws of Love takes you on a journey through the ins and outs of everyday relationships—with your spouse, your children, your friends, and your coworkers—using practical, applicable examples and guiding principles that demonstrate what a life of love actually looks like.
There is no higher calling on earth than to love and be loved. It’s time to learn The Seven Laws of Love, and to make loving a priority over all other pursuits. Anything else isn’t really living.
(From the Book's Introduction)
When I go all day without caffeine, my head feels like it’s going to explode. This unpleasant sensation doesn’t happen very often, because I rarely go more than a few hours without a cup of coffee or a Diet Coke.
My Caffeine Habit is probably unhealthy, but I think it draws some important parallels to the Healthy Habit of Encouragement. When we go all day without encouragement, our very soul starts to ache. We’re starved for it and there seems to be a desperate shortage of it in the world.
This book is intended to be a small part of the solution. When you find yourself needing a quick jolt of encouragement, I hope you’ll read a few pages and find what you need. The readings are intentionally short, because I know that we’re all rushed for time, so by design, these reading can all be completed in two minutes or less.
I pray that the words will help give you hope, perspective, inspiration and encouragement.
