Book Reviews Aren't About an Author's Ego

Celebrating We All Married Idiots 50th five star review on Amazon! I love round numbers. Going for 100!!!

 Reviews aren't about stroking this author or padding my bank account. Reviews sell books that help marriages. My heart beats to save marriages and families from the pain of divorce.

If you would review my book, I'd appreciate it. You don't have to be a great writer to create a review. Just speak from your heart how God worked in your life through reading the book.

Thank you to Author Carole Brown who gave me my 50th five star review of We All Married Idiots on her blog ( and on

"Wow. What a wonderful, heart-touching devotional book.

I loved the title the first time I heard it. And now that I've read the book, I can't say enough good about it. The ten valid reasons men and women can change about his/her marriage are thought-provoking. Every chapter was easy to read, understand and practical and was priceless with down-to-earth illustrations, some funny and many sad, but all real in today's world. Every meditation was filled with appropriate scripture. Every reflection was icing on the chapter cakes, the added touch to bring home the truth. Each prayer rich with pleadings a sincere heart can pour out to God. And the suggestions in the Change sections? Brings to mind the words: Go forth and be fruitful. Powerful acts that can and will create results.

I highly recommend this book for ALL marriages. It's never too late to fall in love again. It's never too early to determine to keep that love preeminent in a new marriage. By all means buy this book. By all means share with your family and friends."

Thanking God for the splash of joy 50 five stars bring. Praying for 100 and seeking 51. Will you be my next reviewer? Thank you!!! Click the book above and you'll go directly to where you can leave a review.

Splashes of Serenity as you join my fight for marriages!



  1. Elaine,

    Congratulations on your reviews. You are right, it isn't about the number of reviews or sales, it's about changing hearts and lives. I celebrate this accomplishment with you and pray to reach twenty-five reviews for my book, "Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey" in the future. Reviews are one way our readers can share their response to an author's book with potential readers. Share the things you liked, disliked, the a-ha moments, and how the book affected you. You never know when your review might be the one that saves a marriage, restores hope, or splashes a reader with serenity.

    Thank you for your heart to serve God and model Godly promotion for other Christian authors and artists.
