A warm Hello from Zerrin and I to each of you!The day is finally here!!! You may remember me talking (long, long ago!) about writing a book that has been a labor of love over the past couple years. Well, I’m excited to announce that it is finally finished, edited, and ready to print and release!!!I’m so thankful for each of you. Every comment made on the blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest has not only encouraged me, but also helped me refine our message. Through countless stories I have heard over the years, I have come to realize more and more the following three things:
- Most everyone experiences some form of hesitation or fear when it comes to conflict.
- Every marriage has conflict. It exists, its normal, and it is possible to win every time.
- There is a lot already written on healthy communication but very little when it comes to a road map or guide to steer people through conflict.
This is exactly why I’m so passionate about the PLEDGE message!!
It pre-supposes that conflict exists, it provides a systematic plan to have in place for when conflict does happen, and it is totally applicable to enhance all communication.One of the best ways to spread a message is to write a book about it, which is exactly why I wrote The PLEDGE of a Lifetime.
The book is written as a narrative, providing an inside peak into the intense struggles of Jake and Lisa that lead them close to separation. You will “sit in” on their counseling sessions, as they learn the keys to process conflict, wrestle to make them work, and experience tense confrontations become rich communication. You will watch as they gain a genuine hope for transformation in the way they relate not only to each other but to their children as well.
We are so excited! The book launches at the end of the month—just in time for Valentine’s Day and two back to back Madly In Love Marriage Conferences here in Wichita! So we are asking for your help to help us spread the message!!
We have over 1500 subscribers who believe in what we are doing. That is a big community of supporters! We are asking every one of you who would, to join one of the following three teams (or even more than one)! Everyone who does will receive a free PDF copy of the book in advance and be invited to a launch team thank you party once the book launches.
