My Catholic Romance novel, Angela’s Song, is FREE today and tomorrow (11/13/13 and 11/14/13) on Kindle! This novel has averaged 4.3 stars on Amazon. Here is a sample review:
One of the most beautiful love stories I have ever read. I wish I had written this, except that then it would have been a Mormon novel instead of a Catholic one. It fully explains what God’s intentions for human love are, and how to meet those intentions. It makes it clear that God’s laws are for our happiness, not to make us miserable. I literally read it in one sitting, and couldn’t put it down for anything until I finished it.

On our date Friday night, my husband, Joe and I came up with a novel idea to help keep our marriage fresh. Each month, we will either buy or make each other a small gift, do an activity or make a new recipe that starts with the beginning letter of the month.
So, for February, we’ll be checking out recipes for Flank Steak. And I’m secretly hoping Joe brings home flowers some night. I can’t tell you what I’m planning for two reasons:
1. He reads my blog.
2. I haven’t thought of it yet.
But I love this idea! It will keep us talking to each other about…each other. And sharing in this way creates emotional intimacy. And emotional intimacy translates into deeper intimacy in the marriage overall.
John Paul II, in his writings on Theology of the Body expounded upon how emotional intimacy is a building block of marriage. If you are interested in learning about this topic, check out the following books:
