For Married Couples

Think about the amount of each of these that was put into planning the first date, perfect honeymoon, or perhaps the first anniversary gift.

As the years go by and our family needs change and become more demanding, our marriage often takes a back seat.

Suddenly, we stop planning dates with one another, we lack effort in giving gifts, and we aren’t willing to make time to recount our day with one another.

The lack of quality time together is beginning to take its toll on your marriage.

Our Love Story

From a very early age, I drew close to our Lord, and although not from a very devout household, I found myself speaking with the Lord often throughout my childhood.

Among these years of childhood innocence, there were a few very distinct spiritual revelations from him – one of which was about my future vocation.

Testimonials

Maria Spears – Musician and Ministry Leader

One of the things I loved best about the 40 Day Devotional for Catholic Single Women were the personal stories.

It can be very discouraging when you’re single and really desiring to enter into your vocation. But hearing such a combination of stories constantly reminded me that God is truly in the love story writing business, and that His timing for every aspect of our lives is perfect!

Virginia Lieto – Author, Theology Professor

Within each chapter (of the Marriage Workbook), she offers a definition of the virtue under study, and how it might best be applied within your marriage.

Then Cook gives you a series of exercises to partake in that: 1. Provide Scriptural reference for embracing the virtue 2. Evaluate the strength of the virtue within your marriage 3. Identify areas in need of improvement, with the development of action plans for practicing the virtue Within each chapter, Cook offers you a series of thought-provoking questions, used for discussion.

These questions will definitely set you, and your spouse, on the right course toward mastering the virtue under study. She also offers a closing prayer to end each session.

Erika Garcia (Teacher)

“Into the Wilderness is must-read for young single Catholic women! It has helped me grow during this time of waiting for marriage, both in self-knowledge and in relationship to God.

“I loved the inspirational quotes and anecdotes for each day. It made me feel like I wasn’t alone in this single-life journey; others have been through it too, and there is always hope.”

Emily Ricci – Founder of Gloriam Marketing

Having a resource like My Hand in Yours, Our Hands in His has been invaluable in reminding us to take time out of our day each day to continue to cultivate our marriage.

With the chaos of life, it can be difficult to carve out that intentional time, but having a workbook like this reminds us to take that time and strengthens both our personal and communal spirituality. I see this being a resource we go back to again and again.

Ruth Apollonia, Authoress, Annabelle of Anchony series

“Being a 30’s something unmarried Catholic female called to marriage, I found encouragement in Into the Wilderness: 40 Day Devotional for Single Catholic Women.

“I found myself thinking, ‘These are my thoughts before me written by another’s hand.’ Both a practical and spiritual devotional that is succinct in words but broad in topics, it challenged me to evaluate my weaknesses and strengths; fears and doubts; and, most importantly, reminded me that I’m not alone in my search for the one with whom God wishes me to wed.

“It’s a great tool for the Holy Spirit to guide one’s thoughts, examine one’s life, and gauge whether one is truly trusting in Him and His Divine Providence, which calls us all to be in better relationship with Him.”

April Canby (Catholic Mother of 6)

“I was looking for a way to talk to my sixteen-year-old daughter about the way she views herself and the way she will approach dating as she discerns her vocation.

“Into the Wilderness” provided a guide to help me talk to her. It gave her some “food for thought” about being happy in her current place in life and opened the door for us to have conversations about seeking out a potential future spouse.

“Because she is only 16, not all of the devotions applied to her (she has not been on a date yet), but I believe it helped open her eyes to a future her. As her mother, my current dating fear for her is that she will “fall” for the first guy who shows her any small amount of attention. This workbook helped us to talk about qualities to look for not only in a future spouse but also in friendships.

“We enjoyed the personal narratives from other young women at the beginning of each devotion. They reflected on personal choices they had to make during their single life and also while they were dating. Several devotions reflected on being happy as a single woman and how to use that time to develop a deeper relationship with God.

“I appreciated the thoughtful God centered topics about being a single woman and potential challenges one might face while considering a vocation in marriage.”
