Feedback Friday

Today's feedback came in a letter from a reader who enjoyed Rhode Island Weddings by Joyce Livingston. He said, "All three of these stories were a real blessing to my wife and myself.... I am realizing one of the greatest growth factors in our marriage is when I nightly read Christian novels aloud to my wife of 44 years. The challenges of Christ-likeness in these fictional characters inspire and motivate me to allow the Holy Spirit to search and cleanse carnality from my old flesh and admire and desire to be like Him and allow Him to change me. Thank God for gifted, godly authors who are so used of God to minister to us."

How cool is that, that this man reads our books aloud to his wife to strengthen their relationships with each other and with Jesus? That's very romantic, too. :)

Wow, that is very cool! In fact, JoAnne, you need to have Joyce make this a part of her next romance, a hero who reads HP romances to his heroine!

And I love Aaron's idea! What a heroic thing for a man to read romances to the woman he loves!
