A Contest, A Video, and a Round-Up!

Hi everybody! I hope you’re enjoying a wonderful weekend. I’m away with a group of teenagers at a Bible quizzing tournament (not nearly as geeky as it sounds), so as you’re reading this, I’ve probably already got a migraine. But at least I’ll be smiling!

So here is your quick weekend round-up, complete with some fun stuff:

1. Have you Entered the Contest Yet?

Zondervan, my publisher, has two contests running simultaneously, one for Americans and one for Canadians. In each, you could win $1000 travel voucher (or a $500 voucher for second prize) to use towards a first–or second–honeymoon! Americans enter at my Facebook Page (just click the Trivia button on the left on the Facebook page), and Canadians, enter here!

For those of you who aren’t American or Canadian, we’d love to include you, but every country has different rules about contests, so it just gets legally prohibitive. But I’ll try to keep writing great stuff that helps you, anyway!

2. A New Video is Out

Zondervan’s been making up some little “bad advice” videos to go along with my book. The first one debuted last weekend, in the article with kids in the bed. Here’s this weekend’s, which kind of goes along with yesterday’s post, Why Frumpy Makes us Grumpy:

3. Interviews, Interviews, Interviews!

If you just love hearing my actual voice (and who wouldn’t, except my kids when I’m trying to get them to clean up), you can listen in on some quick interviews I’ve done lately!

Here’s me talking on the Stupendous Marriage show. You can also download it for iTunes to listen later here.

And then I did a rather fast-paced and funny interview on the Drew Marshall Show a while back, which you can access here.

4. Rock It. Work It. Love It. Fridays

I’m the “love it” at Peak313 in yesterday’s post! Such kind words from Clare. Check it out.

5. A Big Thank You!

And a huge thank you for all of you who bought my book during my one-day blitz on February 29. Here’s what happened on Amazon:


I hit #344 in all books that day (which means that only 343 titles out of Amazon’s 8,000,000 sold better than me!)

And here’s what happened on Amazon.ca:


I hit #29!

Still 30% off at Amazon until it's released March 6!

I just want to say that I’m really humbled that so many of you bought the book–and that so many bought multiple copies for people who are about to get married. I’m just really encouraged by your emails and your comments, and by the fact that what I write resonates with you. Sometimes I write this stuff and then I get a panicky feeling like, “what if other women don’t actually think like that? What if I sound like an idiot?” And so it’s such a relief to know that I am not alone.

And again, I’m very humbled that so many of you chose to buy the book. If you haven’t bought it yet, of course, it’s not too late! And it’s still 30% off until March 6.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I’m starting my series on why men don’t want sex on Monday, and I hope you’ll join me. And there will be lots of information there even for those of you whose husbands ARE in the mood!


  1. So happy for you! Thank you for putting yourself out there and sharing truth with all of us. Many marriages have been and will continue to be strengthened and even saved because of what you have shared.

  2. I follow your blog and you are HILARIOUS! I found you thru Moms Together on FB. I’m a new fan! This part of marriage is so important and we all need the reminder to keep that flame alive!

  3. I have learned that you just need to be yourself and not try to be someone else or try to act like someone else…..You were born for what you are doing and do not let anyone take that from you….You were not born to fit in with the crowd, you were born to stand out and make a difference.
