As you know, Alycia and I don’t normally post about our own projects, but today I want to take the opportunity to let you know about my book, Marriage: Make It or Break It, which was just released by Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas.
Writing a book on marriage was not something I had ever considered until my daughter asked me about it one day in a random text. After that, God abundantly supplied the words, inspiration, resources, and encouragement needed.
Whether you’re a newlywed or someone who has been married for years, this book has something for everyone. Many have told me they plan to give the book as a wedding or anniversary gift. I hope you will take the time to check out my book on Amazon or at LPCbooks.com. Here's the back-cover blurb:
Some say marriage is a dying institution. Others say, “Stop the bus and let me get off.” But Andrea Merrell—after forty-plus years of marriage—believes this God-ordained institution is one of His greatest gifts to men and women. Marriage: Make It or Break It is a result of keen observation, years of studying God's Word, and a lifetime of trial and error. With her signature dash of humor, she takes a candid look at attitudes and behavior that can make or break a relationship, the difference in how men and women think and approach life, and the importance of honest communication. You’ll find danger signs, roadblocks to bypass, and Scriptures to personalize and pray on a daily basis.
This journey won’t be perfect, and the road is guaranteed to be full of potholes. But if you’re ready to learn a few truths that will make marriage strong—and a lot of things that will destroy it—buckle your seat belt and let’s get this bus moving.
