The Marriage App provides a daily boost to help you strengthen your marriage relationship: a story or word of encouragement, a verse of scripture, and a concrete suggestion for connecting with your spouse. From their more than 30 years of experience in marriage counseling, Drs. Paul and Virginia Friesen provide a practical, biblically based app that can help you have the marriage you have always desired.

This app is a companion to the book “The Marriage App: Unlocking the Irony of Intimacy." The book and the app can be used together or independently.

Drs. Paul and Virginia Friesen, founders of Home Improvement Ministries, have a passion for encouraging couples to find the joy and satisfaction that God designed for couples to experience in marriage. They each have a Doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Paul and Virginia have three adult daughters and two sons-in-law, and are very proud grandparents. In addition to their ministry of speaking, writing, and counseling, they have ongoing relationships with various professional sports teams. They are authors of ten books and four DVD series focusing on marriage relationships and parenting.

The Lovely Marilyn

Drs. Paul and Virginia Friesen have offered this world a deeply profound, yet fun and simple read in their book, The Marriage App. Marital issues which can seem so complicated, are distilled down throughout the chapters with highlighted pearls of wisdom and points of action (e.g. "When we know what would make our spouse feel loved but don't do it, the message sent is, 'I really don't care what you want - it's not that important to me." pg. 131). OUCH! So simply stated but strikes deep to the core of a million marital issues. I especially liked the stories of real couples with real issues and was able to learn from their mistakes and was built up by the examples of those who were doing many right things over many years (especially Bill and JoAnn near the end of the book). My favorite pearl of wisdom was on page 50, "Strong marriages are not built on 'personal satisfaction' as much as on knowledge, decisions, and sacrifice." This book is full of knowledge and provides a grid through which a couple can make decisions that will build up their marriage. Last, but not least, Paul and Virginia explain and lay out what God intended for us when we say, "I do." No one ever walks down the aisle planning on ending up divorced. This book provides the foundation, practical application and based in reality hope that we can have healthy marriages that weather the sunny days and the storms in life. I wish everyone would read it.

Even for Old Timers


Hubby and I have been married nearly 23 years. Married at 17 and 19 and no one expected us to last. Through many prayers and Paul's supporting us (Paul like leadership) we have leaned into God first and each other to survive and thrive. This app has been a joy to experience. We communicate well already and are exceptionally close but each day it asks you to specifically discuss some part of your relationship (guided discussion) with your spouse and these are some of the most precious words I've ever exchanged with him. 100% recommend even for the most seasoned of marriage. Every effort we undertake to strengthen our marriage is worth it!
