  1. I subscribed to your blog. I too am a Christian and want to solve a lot of problems in our society that no one is doing about. We have the highest divorce rate on the planet by a wide margin. Kids are hurt the worst by it. The reason is because no one is teaching conflict resolution skills to couples, not the schools, churches or even traditional marriage counseling. I would consider it an honor if you would consider reading and reviewing my new marriage self help book.
