It’s pretty cool when one of your friends is also a published author 🙂 MariLee Parrish has been a close friend of mine for the past several years now, and we have worked together for over a year (she was the best boss EVER I might just add in) She is the published author of several books but I especially love her newest book, 50 Ways to Improve Your Relationship with Your Husband.

So maybe one of the reasons I’m partial to it is that she used one of my helpful tips for keeping your relationship fresh in it (mine is to go through old pictures/scrapbooks/letters from when you were first dating and married, makes amazing memories come back and reminds you why you married them!) you can find in the beginning of the book.

Apart from that I also love the book for several different reasons. The set up is great because it is perfect to do in a devotional type form, each chapter is short enough to read over a short period of time and then has action points, thoughts, and a prayer to go along with it. I love how she delves into all the different areas of life that marriage affect and that affect marriage.

As someone who is close to the author, has met her and her hubby, and has seen their personal marriage dynamic in action I can tell you that she is a *wonderful* person to write this book! I loved it and highly suggest picking it up, you will not be disappointed!

Because she loves me–and you–MariLee is giving away a copy of her book *and* a $5 Starbucks gift card, can’t beat coffee and a good book together!

Be sure to “like” her on Facebook, follow her on Twitter, and subscribe to her blog Picking Up My Socks as well! You can purchase 50 Ways to Improve Your Relationship With Your Husband Here –it would make a wonderful Christmas present!
