A Must Read for everyone! Oct 17, 2003
As a Mom of 3 who has been divorced and remarried, I found this book wonderful! I wasn't raised in a Christian home, but was taught 'right' from 'wrong'. People need to seek out more Biblically based books, tapes, etc and educate themselves more on the teachings of our Lord and Savior! I'm so thankful I stumbled across the seller I bought this book from. I bought it for a friend who is struggling in her marriage and I'm now buying another copy so I can keep on. Pull out the highligher, marker, underliner and take notes! Traci
