Earn It Empower Yourself for Love

Last Friday Bob Quinlan, a friend, launched his new book with a seven piece band at a Borders book store. The title is "Earn It Empower Yourself for Love". The preface of the book promises to redesign the reader's attitude by teaching him to use powerful basic business principles and terminologies to make relationship work.

I plan to begin reading Bob's book next week. I am hoping to find some new tips to share with you. We can use all of the help we can get to aid our evolving relationships. Because no two people are alike, it is great to have relationship tips from as many authors as possible. If we get one idea from a book that can help us understand ourselves or our partners better, it is worth the price of the book. Don't you agree?

Robin and Gary Renew Their Vows

I promised our own story next, but when I saw Robin and Gary's pictures I wanted to share them. Robin wrote, "Healthy happy marriages are very rare these days. Couples need to remember to fight for their marriages and do their individual parts to help make their marriage work! God knows my husband and I have been through it all....separation, the loss of a baby and parents. It was our will and the grace of God that helped us stay together and make it work. We are happier than we have ever been!"

The pictures were taken in Las Vegas where they renewed their vows on their 10th wedding anniversary. They are on their way to becoming soul mates, don't you think? Commitment is essential.

Gems from "Fighting for Your Marriage"

"Don't expect to be your beloved's soul mate before you've been there as your mate's soul unfolds--Soul mates evolve as lovers grow together and coauthor their own relationship story." This quote is from Howard Markman, one of the authors of "Fighting for Your Marriage."

This is another way of saying, you don't find a soul mate, you learn how to become one which is the premise of my book, "Becoming Soul Mates." The book, "Fighting for Your Marriage" also has easy-to-learn help for learning to become soul mates. Check it out at your local book store.
