More About Les Parrott & III Leslie L. Parrott
Les and Leslie. A husband-and-wife team who not only share the same name, but the same passion for helping others build healthy relationships. In 1991, the Parrotts founded the Center for Relationship Development on the campus of Seattle Pacific University – a groundbreaking program dedicated to teaching the basics of good relationships.
Married in 1984, the Parrotts bring real-life examples to their speaking platform. Their professional training – Leslie as a marriage and family therapist, and Les as a clinical psychologist – ensures a presentation that is grounded, insightful and cutting-edge.
Each year Les and Leslie speak in over 40 cities. Their audiences include a wide array of venues, from churches to Fortune 500 company board rooms. The Governor of Oklahoma appointed the Parrotts as the first ever statewide Marriage Ambassadors. Authorities have called upon Les and Leslie to provide on-site support in the aftermath of worldwide disasters such as Ground Zero and Chernobyl. The Commander of the 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines, invited them to assist his soldiers with re-entry into family life upon returning from Iraq.
Part of Les and Leslie’s vision for building stronger, life-long marriages is to equip a band of more than a million marriage mentors who walk alongside less experienced couples. Research reveals that marriage mentoring is one of the best things we can do to cut the divorce rate and improve marriages – whether couples are engaged, newly married or married of decades.
The Parrotts have been featured in USA Today and the New York Times. Their television appearances include CNN, The View, The O’Reilly Factor, The Today Show and Oprah.
As #1 New York Times best-selling authors, their books have sold over two million copies in more than two dozen languages, and include best-selling and Gold-medallion winner Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts.

Excellent Book to Enhance Your Marriage! Mar 20, 2007
Want to improve your marriage? You don't have to have a bad one to improve it. This book will help you tweak yours to be better than you ever thought possible.
great book! Aug 30, 2006
Practical tips that can really be done! Written by a husband & wife team, so it offers two view points.
Excellent guideline Jul 25, 2006
This book is an excellent tool for newlyweds and people who have been married for years. This book is nothing more than common sense, but so many people over look the simple stuff.
my husband read it Jan 2, 2005
i have a large collection of relationship books that i buy for husband to be used as dust collectors. for some reason he liked this one and he did not put it down until it was read. i saw instant results. buy it!
Great ideas for a better marriage Feb 10, 2003
I really enjoyed this book by Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott. The format is simple - the Love List is a list of 2 things to do once a day, once a week, once a month and once a year. Examples are:
Once a day find something that makes you both laugh. Once a week boost your partner's self-esteem.
Along with the items on the list, the Parrotts include personal anecdotes and encouragement about how to re-vitalize a tired marriage or improve an already good one.
The Parrotts also do marriage conferences called "Becoming Soulmates" (look for the book by the same name). Pillow Talk for Couples: Drawing Closer Before the Lights Go Out" is the title of their newest book, a devotional that looks like a must-buy!
The Love List would be a great book for any married couple, newlyweds or golden-agers. The authors are Christians and the book is written from that perspective, but I believe all married couples would benefit greatly!
