We All Married Idiots — Oh the Places You'll Go!

One thing I know — marriage difficulties are universal. I felt that when I wrote We All Married Idiots: Three Things You Will Never Change About Your Marriage and Ten Things You Can, although I never imagined where God was taking this book.

One of my first reviewers lives in Alaska. Amazon geographics show We All Married Idiots sold in every state except Utah and New Mexico.

One of the first Kindle sales went to Uruguay. Within days I received word from this buyer asking if We All Married Idiots could be translated into Spanish. That's happening right now. Please pray as this Spanish edition is produced.

A woman from Spain whom I've never met, (she also read Idiots via Kindle) read my blog post about the Spanish translation and offered her help to see Idiots translated. Spain needs marriage help too! An  English-speaking friend in El Salvador is anxious to see this Spanish translation as well. There is a need in El Salvador.

My husband and I just returned from a ministry trip to Bosnia/Herzegovina. Our hosts  also read We All Married Idiots on their Kindle. They asked for a hard copy (of course I had five with me). They took them all and asked permission to translate Idiots into the Bosnian language. WOW!

Dear ones, will you pray for this work as it goes into all the world. I always wanted to be a missionary. God closed that door. But He is opening this one — WIDE!

Meanwhile my speaking opportunities come in weekly. To my surprise I received a CONGRATULATIONS! from LinkedIn announcing I was in the top one percent most endorsed in the United Sates for Public Speaking out of 200 million people. Woo Hoo!

I'm not tooting my horn. I'm thanking God and asking you to pray for this ministry God has opened to me. satan would like nothing more than to destroy me and  you and all of our marriages. Your prayers will stop his attacks. Please pray for the Spanish and Bosnian translators. Pray for their protection as they produce multi-lingual copies of We All Married Idiots.  

Thank you for being a splash of serenity in my life and in the lives of marriages yet to read We All Married Idiots,
