Just gave a copy of your book to my newly engaged niece and her fiancé. She was so happy and grateful for the gift. So am I! Thank you, Mary Ellen and Bob.
This is one awesome little handbook for how to live a lifetime of happiness! I read this all in one sitting and knowing Mary Ellen personally, I could actually hear her voice as I read the book! This is a must read for all who are ENGAGED and want to know the secret to a happy and fulfilling marriage. I would also highly recommend it for folks who are already married and just need to REKINDLE their love and admiration for one another. It would make a great bridal shower gift.
Mary Ellen and Bob brought their 50 years of marriage experience and communication techniques to the couples who attended our Conference. Mary Ellen and Bob shared inspiring stories and examples of how to increase closeness. Their interactive style gave the couples private time to discuss and share intimately on topics vital to the growth of a godly marriage. Mary Ellen and Bob's honesty about their own marriage inspired our couples with courage to speak openly with each other.
I would recommend this book whether you just got engaged or have been married for 20 years. There are so many life lessons and different ways you can learn to communicate better with your significant other or spouse. I learned you can be yourself and do things you love but also come together and do things you love together. 5 out of 5 stars!!
As a teaching leader for a Moms' Mentoring Group of nearly 100 women at our church, I have happily welcomed Mary Ellen Hastings as a Special Guest Speaker twice over the course of two years. Mary Ellen has a zest for life, respect for her husband and a contagious love for God. She beams with joy and her words are pearls of wisdom. I would encourage other women's groups to invite Mary Ellen to bless them with a visit as well.
How I so enjoyed your book! Glad you had the courage, wisdom, and foresight to write something that will encourage so many in their marital relationship. Ralph and I are working on our “couple power” and building good memories.
The Detox Your Mind class encouraged me to prioritize the things that are valuable in my life. Mary Ellen is very motivating and inspiring! Personal growth is very important. I would highly recommend Mary Ellen to lead you in the right direction in life.
