    Help for young adults

    In a society immersed in 'sex'. It would be good for the next generation to stop and think deeply about what God had in mind in the creation. How do man - woman relationships look when they are under the influence of the Good Spirit? Such reflections early in life help lay a foundation upon which a healthy marriage can be built. This book will help! The foreword by Mother Teresa was one of her last published writings.

    Powerful stuff!

    I just got married 1 1/2 years ago and wow! arnold sure offers a different dimension to the whole experience. This is the kind of glue that's going to hold marriages together. Take or leave the good advice, but it helped us to look at it all in a new way. Good job arnold, we now need more authors to write like this!
