Kacey’s Question: Who Will I Marry? is available at online retailers and wherever fine books are sold!

This question came from our daughter at five years old.

“Mama, who will I marry?”

I didn’t have a very good answer the first time, but twenty-five years later HER son asked me the SAME question when HE was five years old: “Grammy, who will I marry?”

After twenty-five years of life flowing by and observing a few things about marriages—what worked and what apparently did not work, I had a better answer.

And possibly the answer to our daughter’s and grandson’s question is also the answer to my hubby’s question one time when we heard about another couple getting a divorce.

He asked, “Why doesn’t everybody have as much fun in their marriage as we do?”

Are we listening? Are we living out the answer?
