My Thoughts On The Book: As an ex-wife, of almost 25 years, I wish I had had this book before I got married the first time. As a pastor I think this book is an excellent counseling tool for young almost married couples. I have to admit that it was not my favorite book of all times, yet it was necessary. It does seem to be a bit one sided and is geared more toward women than men. It was not a book of do's and don'ts, it was a book of preparedness. I believe so many times we step into relationships without waiting on the Lord's answer and we jump in head first not thinking of the results. For young women....or second timers this is a great read if you are stepping out into the relationship game again.

I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
