We are in the process of writing a couple of books right now. This has always been my dream but taking the time to actually sit down and start writing has been my problem. One of the books is about my addictions called “A Changed Heart. It is going to be a book about how God healed me from those addictions over 9 years ago. I am telling my story of what I went through during those 19 years of addictions and also what my amazing wife went through our first 5 years of marriage because of those addictions.

The second book we are writing is on marriage because this is our biggest strength. We look around and God has placed marriage as one of our biggest passions. It saddens us when we see marriages not doing so well.
The book will be called “Inspired Marriage”. We want to discuss what it takes to have a God-Inspired Marriage. We realize everything we do, some people would never do because they don’t agree but if we can help guide marriages to some degree, we believe we can help change the whole direction of their marriage.
We aren’t perfect by no means but we do have something special within our marriage and we just want to share what we have in hopes that it may inspire other couples to not give up on their marriage because in all reality, Sandy could have given up on me because she was treated bad during those first 5 years with my addictions.
She didn’t leave because she felt like our marriage was worth fighting for and we hope that others realize this too. On a side note, I never physically abused her or physically cheated as both of those have always been deal breakers for us in our marriage.
When we say fight for your marriage, we are NOT proclaiming you to be abused because if your life is in jeopardy or anything like that then you need to leave if for no reason until your spouse gets help.
We want to reach the people that just feel like they have a dead marriage before they cross some lines. From what we have seen, there are a lot of people in their marriages who are on the fence and those are the people that we believe our marriage book will reach the most.
Our marriage book will although be for all couples as even if you have an inspired marriage already, we can help show you ways to keep that fire lit.
Once we get the marriage book close to written, we will probably set up a funding page for pre-orders of the book! Until then:
Living Our Story,
P.S. We are even thinking about doing a novel too on marriage.
