Every couple desires a long and loving marriage, one that can overcome difficulties and survive hard times. But sometimes couples need help. Across the nation there are many seminars, conferences, fellowships, and retreats that address what makes a successful marriage. In Marriage, Better with Time, Dr. Shirley Durham offers her own recipe for a successful marriage, combining the word of God with the professional advice she gives her clients. She discusses sharing, finances, communication, praying together, and even taking a vacation, drawing on examples from her own marriage as well as the real-life challenges of husbands and wives who seek her counsel. Warning that society poses a potential danger to the biblical principles of marriage, Dr. Shirley provides the antidote to help couples, young and old, avoid unhealthy marriages, endure life’s changes, and stay together.

Introducing Todd Michael Putnam, author of The Garden of Life

“You may remember that you and your team helped to get my book The Garden of Life published a few months ago. I wanted to let you know that I got my first professional review back from blueink.com and it was very positive. They gave The Garden of Life a Starred Review, which puts it in roughly the top 4% of all book reviews that they do. It also means that the book will get reviewed again by a high level Review Board who will determine if it meets the criteria for a “Best Book” award, which is their top award that is very rarely given. I feel that you and your team, especially your book cover designer and your editor, are a very big part of getting such a positive review on my very first book, so I wanted to thank you and hope that you will let your team members know what a valuable part of the success of The Garden of Life they and their work have been. Their efforts and yours are deeply appreciated and I thought they just might like to know that readers and critics alike are raving about the final product of our work.”
