New Inspirational Marriage Book Available

After three long years of preparation and work, I’m thrilled to announce that my book, First Kiss to Lasting Bliss: Hope & Inspiration for Your Marriage is now available!

Just in time for Christmas, the book is ideal for married couples of all ages and stages who want to achieve a blissful  marriage, but who understand life sometimes gets in the way.

First Kiss to Lasting Bliss features the real-life stories of couples across the U.S. Many of them used adversity to improve their marriages. Couples overcame drug addiction, infidelity, stranger rape, bankruptcy, raising a special needs child, infertility, loss of a child, military separation, opposing religions, differing races, unsupportive families, life-threatening injuries and illnesses, depression, brain injury, and MUCH more. These couples didn’t just survive, they became great love stories that can inspire us all. You will get to know the couples and their often difficult journeys, as well as the keys to their now-strong marriages.

In the book, I also share 12 overarching lessons that these couples taught me while writing the book. These lessons can inspire you to take your marriage to the next level.

The book is offered in print and e-book editions. The print version is $14.95, and e-books range from $7.99 to $9.99 depending on which format you choose. But no matter what format you choose, I’m happy to offer seven free marriage tools/products from other marriage educators and writers who are generously offering them to all those who purchase my book. Visit my web site for the awesome list (and thanks to all the contributors!) and the links to the different book formats. You can also find testimonials, the book introduction and interviews with me on my site www.LoriDLowe.comGo here if you would rather go straight to to buy the book. (You still get the freebies if you email me).

I’ve shared hundreds of research-based marriage tips here at Marriage Gems during the last three years. If you have found this blog helpful, I hope you will check out the book. Please consider sharing it with your friends or family who could use some encouragement.

I thank all of you for your support and for your interactions here, which keep me motivated to research and write about this important topic that has the potential to help so many families. I especially thank my family for their patience during this rather large undertaking.

I wish you bliss in your relationships!

  5. Lori,

    I’m only part-way through the book, but I just wanted to say “wow!” I read the first chapter and got to listen to a few more while on the road, and can’t wait to get back on the road to hit play again. You manage to really introduce us to the couples and show us their lives. The lessons that you’ve put together are not only directly told, but clearly illustrated through the stores that you chose to share.

    Congratulations on excellent work and thank you so much for sharing!

  6. Wow! I downloaded your 10 secrets to Marital Success and it was really great! I am sure this book will be too!!

  7. Thank you, Matthew. I appreciate the feedback. I think the real-life stories are the best way to show and learn the lessons. They have certainly impacted my life. And Viviene, feel free to share the free e-book with your friends. I hope you enjoy First Kiss to Lasting Bliss! Blessings to you both.

  8. Congratulations, Lori! This is absolutely wonderful. Incredibly happy for you. It must feel wonderful to finally birth a major project like this. My hope is it will increase your reach and expand your audience.

  9. Lori, I just finished reading your book. Loved it. Very well-written and insightful stories about real life and marriage in the trenches. I am so glad to know about your and your web site…it is just what I needed a time when I had basically lost hope (and I was okay with that), but now, after reading your book, I am inspired to get my head in the game and start working on my marriage again. Thank you so much.

    • I’m so pleased to hear that the stories in the book provided you with much-needed inspiration for your marriage. Thank you so much for your feedback. I wish you the very best in your marriage. Please keep in touch.
