Book Giveaway

November 8, 2012

Book coverThis week we're giving away a copy of Twenty Poems to Bless Your Marriage. From the leap of joy that a couple takes on their wedding day to a fiftieth wedding anniversary that acknowledges the deep connection that a life together can bring, marriage takes us on a journey that passes through seasons and stages, peaks and valleys. This book honors that journey through twenty poems that celebrate and illuminate some of these major stages and provides not only inspiration for the journey but also solace and wisdom.

This contest is now closed. Congrats to Miv, who won a free copy of the book! Thanks, everyone, for your comments. Stay tuned for more giveaways.

    My husband and I have been married for 21 1/2 years. We have a child with special needs. It's very challenging to make special time for each other... I am our son's sole caregiver and my hubby works long hours. This book would be lovely to read together!

    After nearly 39 years, I have learnt that the only way to have a happy marriage is to love your parnter more than you love yourself. Sometimes when one gets weary a little positive re-enforcement is helpful.

    Books such as this aren't meant to be used AFTER problems develop in a marriage. The should be used as part of the maintenance and growth work that keep a marriage health and whole.
