"My prayer is to become more emotionally and spiritually connected with my husband."
There is a longing for deeper connection, even in faithful, Catholic marriages.
Distance, loneliness, negativity, criticism, or fighting and arguments are all too common.
And if you experience these or similar challenges, you are not alone!
With the realities and responsibilities of daily life, raising kids, balancing work and home, you look up and realize:
The connection — the spark — you used to enjoy is gone.
Or maybe you just feel like there must be MORE, wondering to yourself: Is this all? What’s next?
No matter where you are in your marriage, here’s the good news we want to share with you:
Doing little things with great love can open your marriage to the transformative power of God’s grace.
The example of St. Therese and her parents, Sts. Louis and Zelie Martin, can show you how!
The Little Way of Marriage is a spiritual and practical roadmap to help your Catholic marriage, based on the spirituality of St. Therese of Lisieux.
St. Therese became one of the gretaest saints by learning to do little things with great love.
The Little Way of Marriage takes those powerful spiritual truths from St. Therese and shows you step-by-step how to apply them to your marriage.
Following this "little way" can open your marriage to more of the peace, joy and connection that God has in store for you!

We want to help your marriage make REAL and sustainable progress. So we encourage you to focus on little steps, one by one.
We are here for you and want to walk with you!
You can actually respond to ANY of the emails you receive from us. Yes, we personally read and respond to each one. But we do appreciate your patience as sometimes things get a little hectic in our family of five kids!
YES! The spiritual insights from St. Therese will bring you closer to your husband or wife, and closer to God… but only if you put in the effort to actually DO the little things you will learn.
If you make the effort to take a few small steps — to do some little things — out of love for your husband or wife, you will emerge from the workshop more connected and more receptive to God’s grace in your Catholic marriage.
YES. St. Therese was, in fact, a cloistered Carmelite sister. The spiritual lessons of her “Little Way” helped her live out her vocation with great love and trust in God.
And those same spiritual lessons can help us in our Catholic marriages live out our vocation to which we have been called. Things like love, trust, humility, and other-centeredness can absolutely help us live holy and happy marriages!
