Book Description

Review 'In a world where bailing out is the norm, this book captures the essence and virtue of sticking it out. These marriage relationships prove that the power of enduring love is found at the end of the journey. While these real-life love stories are heart breaking, the strength of the book lies not in the tragedies, but in the triumph of lasting love, service, and commitment to a vow. There is still power in marriage. There is still strength in tenderness. And there is immeasurable beauty in holding on to love and each other until death do us part. Each story is different, yet each story will make you want a love that endures until the very last matter what!' -Lorna Hering, Teacher 'I'm looking for something witty to say, you know, something profound. But here's the simple truth: Mike is my friend. As such I trust him with access to my family and my people. Mike has loved me like a brother, encouraged me like a pastor, and kicked my ass like a coach. And then there's Ms Patti: a classy southern lady-full of love and grace. She's forced to tolerate Mike's perpetual immaturity and poor sense of humor. A match made in heaven. Together they're students of the important stuff in life: love, marriage, and relationships. I've loved every chapter of this book. I'm sure you will too...' -Michael Hindes, Leader/Life Coach Read more About the Author Mike?was?born in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, but raised in Texas.
