Top 10 Marriage books

When it comes to the topic of marriage there are many viewpoints and advice to be offered.  Over the years I have added to my home library books on the topic of marriage and I have pulled out my top nine and included mine in the list.  This list by no means is exhaustive but I wanted to share with you some author's books that I read, enjoyed and put their advice into practice.  One of them even wrote me a reply back from an email I sent.  Here is the list:
If you are in a crosscultural marriage or know someone that is, the Marriage Journal would make a great gift.  To order an ebook go to Marriage Journal 

Thank you,

Marriage tips

My story

Born in the downriver area of Detroit, I knew I was destined for something great.  I knew I had a gift for writing or expressing myself through writing stories and poetry.  That came full circle for me ten years after dropping out of college at my first attempt.  

Fast forward some years later into adulthood I was faced with being a divorcee with three sons to raise.  It was not easy at all.  Consistent local support was hard to come by and my family supported me emotionally and financially long distance.  Still I did not want to give up on love.  

After a few attempts at it, I failed miserably.  I know now that I was not equipped with information that would help me make better choices in love relationships.  I was not going to repeat those lessons anymore.  They were too costly.  

Today I am happier than ever.  My dream of writing and helping others through inspirational writing and coaching is now a dream come true. I have a healthy and happy marriage full of joy and commitment.  I share that love and stories in the newsletter with subscribers click here.  And as a crosscultural marriage and relationship coach I want to celebrate your story, your marriage.  We know what works for each of us and I support you by working with your strengths and help you enhance your marriage to be all that it can be.  


Many blessings,

Did you know that...?

According to the U.S.  Census, in 2010, there were 5.4 million interracial or interethnic married-couple households.  The majority of couples live on the west coast of the United States. I wonder how much that number has increased or decreased recently.  With the next census coming up in a few years it will be interesting to find out the new stats. For now you can check out more on the stats from 2010 here: Interracial marriage statistics .
