My third book, The Heart of Marriage: Stories That Celebrate the Adventure of Life Together, releases, appropriately enough, on Valentine’s Day! It’s a collection of 52 stories from both me and an incredible collection of contributors, including Holley Gerth, Crystal Paine, Lisa-Jo Baker, Alexandra Kuykendall, Renee Swope, Shaunti Feldhahn, Richard Paul Evans, Kristen Welch, Mo Isom, and more.

This beautiful hardcover book, illustrated with over twenty photos, will not only make a lovely Valentine’s present for your spouse, but also a great gift for engagements, weddings, and anniversaries. With beautiful photographs and poignant prose, this collection is perfect for the good days, the hard days, and all the days in between.

The best marriages are not necessarily the most perfect and picturesque. Marriage is about walking together through all of life’s ups and downs, its challenges and triumphs. And no relationship offers more chances for personal and spiritual growth, for love and support, and for just plain fun.

This collection offers stories for reflection and encouragement for the bride-to-be, the couple celebrating a significant anniversary, or even the one struggling in a difficult marriage. Its stories are arranged into seven categories: To Have and to Hold, Through the Eyes of Love, As Long as We Both Shall Live, For Better for Worse, Great Expectations, The Refining Power of Marriage, Writing Our Love Story, and a 3-part account of the history of my and my husband’s wedding rings.

Join The Heart of Marriage Launch Team!

I had an amazing launch team for The Gift of Friendship and I’m excited to work with one again. Would you like to help me launch The Heart of Marriage?

What is a Book Launch Team?

A launch team is a group of volunteers who help an author announce the release of her book.

What’s so special about a Book Launch Team?

Launch team members get to read a book weeks before it releases. Favorable feedback that you share both online and face-to-face will introduce The Heart of Marriage to many more readers than I could reach on my own. I appreciate your willingness to share this book with your people!

What’s in it for me?

You will receive a free, advance, hardback copy of the book so you can read it before it releases and tell others about it. You will also be invited to join a private Facebook group exclusively for launch team members where we can chitchat about the book and share our favorite stories.

What am I expected to do?

  • Read the book
  • Engage in the closed Facebook group for launch team members
  • Spread the word face-to-face, online, and on social media

How do I apply?

CLICK HERE to apply! Launch team members will be chosen from these submissions for the limited number of books available. Watch for a follow-up email in the next couple of weeks with details about the private Facebook group, when you can expect to receive your copy of The Heart of Marriage, and more!

The world needs more books that affirm marriage and encourage us in this important relationship. I can’t wait for you to read it and share with your friends. Your willingness to help spread the word is a gift to me—I thank you in advance.

If you don’t wish to join the team but would like to pre-order a copy, you can do so now at the following retailers:

Amazon | Barnes & Noble |  CBD | Parable  |  Books-a-Million
