A long time ago, while exploring some ministry role directions, I felt the desire to create a marriage manual for young couples either soon to be wed or just newly wed. I also believed that it would be a useful tool for pastors or other wedding officiants to use for pre-marital counseling.

This book was birthed at that time. However, it remained not quite finished and unpublished. Recently, I began to consider it again. I added to it, and prepared it for publication. It is now available in both print and eBook form.

Available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple Books, and more.
