Local marriage enrichment leaders and trainers Eddie and Sylvia Robertson of Waleska have long been helping couples explore ways to communicate. They have released a book, “Wonderful Wednesdays: 52 Conversations for Couples,” in an effort to help even more. A launch party and book signing will be at Yawn’s Books and More on Saturday from 3 to 5 p.m.

“Eddie and I have been working in marriage enrichment for many years,” Sylvia said. “We have usually spread the word that there is hope for marriage by making couple to couple connections.”

The couple met at Alma College and married in 1969. After graduate school, they moved with the oil industry before settling in Waleska in 1986 when they joined the faculty at Reinhardt University. They are active in Waleska United Methodist Church where Eddie is a certified lay speaker.

In the book, the authors present 52 dialogue opportunities for the weeks of the year through the four seasons. The anecdotes and thoughts shared are personal, yet the book is not about them. The entries offer opportunities to explore and grow in marriage relationship, focusing on communication, creative use of inevitable conflict and commitment to growth in marriage. The skills used build upon each other through the year.

“Through the years, we have been privileged to have couples share with us the triumphs and trials of their marriage journeys,” Eddie said. “By making resources available for your marriage and for those married couples for whom you care, we seek to pass along some of the love that has been shared with us.”

The book, published in July by Yawn’s Publishing, is now available for $9.99 at Yawn’s Books and More. Following the launch party, the couple will have a marriage enrichment taster at their home which will consist of a potluck supper and an introduction to marriage enrichment. Couples are invited, and their children are welcome to attend.
