Grateful - SmartLoving @ Home

Joy-filled Couples

We all love to be around joy-filled couples. Their good humour and welcoming generosity make their homes places of hospitality for all their visitors and friends. People leave their presence refreshed and uplifted by their joyous delight in each other.

A well-developed sense of gratitude is one of the distinguishing characteristics of happy couples.

Gratitude leads spouses to look for the good in each other rather than the faults. They have found ways to embrace their differences with good humour rather than argue about them. And they are motivated to serve each other, because they each feel blessed and privileged to be loved by the other.

“To transform any relationship is to consciously cultivate a disposition of gratitude”

Other chapters include: The Science of Gratitude, The Power of Words, The George Bailey Technique and The Gratitude Challenge.


The SmartLoving @Home Series can be used by individual couples, small groups or as source material for parishes running marriage enrichment events. Each edition includes reflection questions and inventories as well as practical suggestions for creating a stronger relationship. For less than the cost of a cup of coffee, the PDF download my be shared with up to 10 people in either print or digital format. New Topics added regularly.
