Hal & Melanie SugarLoaf WebWe’ve got TWO great gifts for you today! But, first we’d like to offer you a great discount on the book we couldn’t find when we were raising our boys – so we wrote it!

You are not alone.

We have boys, too! Six of them, counting the ones that have grown up …and we’ve felt like pulling our hair out some days, too.

Is there a way to teach those stinky (well, if they’re teens), sassy (sometimes), and bickering (it happens here, too!) sons to become godly men? Can you get your boys to help out with the laundry? Is it possible to raise them to be bold adventurous men, without them break their legs jumping off the garage?

The answer is yes!

Now for the Gifts!

When Hal was diagnosed with stage IV cancer a few years ago, it was a comfort to us to realize that whatever happened, we had our first book, Raising Real Men and our boys would know what their Daddy thought it meant to be a man. That made us ask, “Well, what else would we want to leave behind for our children?”  We wanted our children to know how to have a wonderful, Christ-centered, best friend kind of marriage – so we began to write My Beloved and My Friend…


Always Enraptured cover on tablet PCThe first gift today is an ebook about the physical side of marriage, Always Enraptured, excerpted from My Beloved and My Friend. Hey, you know it’s practical and realistic – we have eight children!
