No one has ever said marriage was easy. Then again, no one has ever gone about marriage like Squire and Pam Newsome. Their first time around, their marriages ended in divorce. More than 10 years, six children, a second marriage, and a host of clients later; the Building Better Marriages relationship counselors are practicing how to do marriage right.

In their first book, “Lovescape: Changing the Landscape of Your Marriage,” the happily married counseling duo walk couples through the process of defining marriage for themselves, creating a vision for marriage, and building a support system for moments when the wisdom of another couple or trusted advisor is needed.

Specifically written to address the cultural and relationship nuances of African-Americans, “Lovescape”:

  • Shares the truth about marriage from the Newsome’s’ first-hand experiences

  • Provides advise on how to pushback on well-intentioned but poor advice from family and friends

  • Equips couples with conflict resolution strategies that respect and honor the individual as well as the marriage

Create the marriage you both want. Lovescape your way to a happy and healthy marriage designed for you, by you.
