Classic advice for the engaged Nov 10, 2007
Ever wish you knew what to say? Maybe have you wanted to give good advice, or wished for good advice, but didn't know where to turn? A well-spoken minister wrote a series of letters to his daughter when she became engaged. I was given a copy of this book 31 years ago and I'm sending a copy to my niece who's recently become engaged. I think it is best to read one letter a day and thoroughly enjoy that note for the day.

Good Advice Sep 27, 2005
Charles Shedd shares the wisdom he gained from a long successful marriage with his daughter, Karen, befpre her marriage. "Letters to Karen" gives advice on establishing and maintaining a healthy, Christian relationship with her future husband. This advice is not just about how to treat each other right. It deals with the doubts and fears a new wife has on the day she wakes up, realizing that she is married, and asks herself "What have I done?" There is advice for handling the trials and tribulations which every marriage goes through. I read this book before my marriage and felt that it contained the best pre-marital counselling I received. Twenty-nine years later, I purchased this book for my future daughter-in-law. I am hoping it will be as helpful to her as it was to me.
Lasting advice--and it worked for me Aug 25, 2003
My grandmother gave me this book around 1966, soon after I married. It provided basic advice about marriage that I took to heart, and the advice and the marriage are still working after 37 years. I loaned my copy to someone years ago, and it never came back, but I just bought a replacement. There's another generation coming up that I need to loan this book to.
love letters Jan 25, 2002
I enjoyed this book. It gives good peices of advice that just about any woman in todays society can use! I would love it if my dad were to write me letters like this. I think its a cute idea and i'm glad he turned it into a book. I really want to write letters about life to my children once i have them. I would recomend it to any young woman out there.
