Little did I know when asked to speak at a Russian coffee shop on my book We All Married Idiot: Three Things You Will Never Change About Your Marriage and Ten Things You Can, that a woman serving with TransWorld Radio was in the audience. Introducing herself afterwards, she asked if I would come to TransWorld Radio in St. Petersburg for an interview that would be broadcast all over Russia.
The third segment of that interview will be broadcast on www.twrradio.ru this Saturday, March 22, 2014 at 2:45, 6:45, 10:45, 14:45, 18:45, and 22:45 Moscow time.
Authors and speakers dream of someone influential in their audience who will take hold of their book and run with it until its popularity spreads to millions of households. Writers hope and pray for this breakthrough because we are passionate about our book's subject. Otherwise, we would not have the discipline to write.
In Malcolm Gladwell's book The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference, he explains The Tipping Point like this:
"The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire. Just as a single sick person can start an epidemic of the flu, so too can a small but precisely targeted push cause a fashion trend, the popularity of a new product, or a drop in the crime rate. This widely acclaimed bestseller, in which Malcolm Gladwell explores and brilliantly illuminates the tipping point phenomenon, is already changing the way people throughout the world think about selling products and disseminating ideas."
I wrote We All Married Idiots hoping that people would change the way they think about marriage. Your spouse is not an idiot to tolerate. Your beloved is a gift to treasure. Now that's a point I pray tips the scales in favor of marriage for generations to come.
Praying my talks in Russia make a big difference in Russian marriages. Will you pray for marriages please? Currently a book study of We All Married Idiots is happening in St. Petersburg and a translator is translating Idiots into Russian.
Pray We All Married Idiots is the little book that makes a big difference. Thank you.
Splashes of Serenity on your marriage that splash and splash and splash for years to come,
