Les and Leslie ParrottAuthors, Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts
Husband-and-wife team, Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott, not only share the same name, but the same passion for helping others build healthy relationships. They are master communicators; they are entertaining, thought-provoking and immeasurably practical.
Married since 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 grounded presentation that is insightful and cutting-edge. In 1991, on the campus of Seattle Pacific University, the Parrotts founded the Center for Relationship Development, a groundbreaking program dedicated to teaching the basics of good relationships.
Each year Les and Leslie speak in over 40 cities. Their audiences include a wide variety of venues, from churches to Fortune 500 company board rooms. The Governor of Oklahoma appointed the Parrotts as the first ever statewide Marriage Ambassadors and the Commander of the 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines, invited them to assist his soldiers with re-entry into family life upon returning from Iraq.
Their books have sold over one million copies in more than two dozen languages, and include best-selling and Gold-medallion winner Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts. Other popular titles include The Control Freak, I Love You More, Becoming Soul Mates, Relationships, Questions Couples Ask, Shoulda Woulda Coulda, and High-Maintenance Relationships. Their work as been featured in Family Circle, Redbook, Men's Health, Focus on the Family, Brides, as well as USA Today and The New York Times.
The Parrotts have been guests on many national TV and radio programs such as CNN, Good Morning America, CBS This Morning, The View with Barbara Walters, NBC Nightly News, and Oprah. They are hosts of the nationally syndicated radio program Love Talk and are weekly guests on the Fox TV morning show in Seattle.
In addition, the Parrotts have partnered with Bluefish TV to produce several video series: MAKING MARRIAGE WORK, PARENTING YOUR TEENAGER, PARENTING THE EARLY YEARS, and YOU MATTER MORE THAN YOU THINK. All of these video based Bible studies are available at BluefishTV.com.
