This book was written by my mother-in-law, Carma Sirrine.  It is a perfect gift for a newly engaged couple, wedding, anniversary or "just because".  It is a collection of true stories that inspire, strengthen and encourage.  They are real stories and my husband is mentioned (not by name) in two of these stories, one of which I wrote.  The names have been omitted because of the very personal nature of the 100 short experiences.  They represent personal insights, what has worked in their marriage and why - the yearning, struggle and process of striving toward an eternal marriage. Spoiler Alert - My favorite part is on page 35 in Chapter 3, "Making Loving Relationships".  I won't say anymore about it.  You need to read for yourself and find stories that you relate to and are pertinent to your life. Here are the "Secrets":

  • Rely On the Lord
  • Make Decisions Early
  • Make Loving Relationships
  • Have Total Comittment
  • Money Matters
  • Lighten Up Your Life
  • Have a Good Attitude
  • Share Thoughts and Feelings
  • Remember the Best Times
  • Bits of Advice for a Happy Marriage
