Hello everybody! After my mini-meltdown online last Friday, I’m feeling muchos better. In fact, I’m heading off to speak at a marriage conference with my husband this weekend, and then I’m heading down to the Pennsylvania area next week to speak. So I’m back on my feet.

My Column

But one thing that came out of last Friday was that sometimes the audience for my weekly column–an opinion column that appears in secular newspapers–is not the same as the audience for my marriage blogs. I’ll still post it here if it has to do with marriage and family, but today’s is about politics, and how the “Cool” factor (or voting for the coolest politician) is highly overrated. I posted it on my main website instead. Want to read it? It’s right here.

A Big Special!

A number of you wrote me last weekend to encourage me, but several women also said that they had wanted to buy The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex, but were embarrassed to pick it up in a Christian bookstore. And embarrassed to buy it on Amazon because there would be a record of their order.

I hear you. So this week, until October 26, I have a deal on, where for $15 you can get the book, postage included. Just head on over to my store and click “Add to Cart”. Then you can pay either with a Visa or Mastercard, or you can pay with Paypal where you can use any credit card or your bank account. You get those choices on checkout.

Here I am explaining the special:

Cool Marriage Links:

Over on my Facebook Page a number of people linked to this great article by Danoah at Single Dad Laughing, who I actually quoted at one point in my book! He has a post on 16 Ways I Blew My Marriage. Very profound. I wonder what the points would be if it were a woman writing the post? If you have any thoughts, leave them in the comments here!

The blog Fancy Little Things has an interesting 72 hour challenge. Do you think you could do it?

Don’t forget Cheri’s Holiday Ready Heart challenge! If you dread the holidays, with all the work that they entail, then it’s time to get your heart ready to celebrate.

And since we’re linking my YouTube videos today, here’s an older one: Do you feel alone in your marriage?

4. My Question

Last night I asked on my Facebook Page: do you share bank accounts? Why or why not? I’m thinking of writing a post on this, so if you have any thoughts, leave them in the comments!

There’s my Friday round-up. Hope you have a great weekend!
