 Our Description


Dr. Alice von Hildebrand


What to do when the honeymoon is over!

"Because of human imperfections, difficulties crop up in marriage, even between people who love each other deeply.  You'll soon find that for this reason, although love is a gift, it must also be learned."

So begins this remarkable book of letters to Julie, a young bride - letters that reveal the beauty and importance of high ideals in marriage while teaching you practical tips to help you live up to those ideals daily.

You'll learn how to grow in wisdom and in love as you encounter the unglamorous, everyday problems that threaten all marriages.  As the author says:  "If someone were to gve me many short bits of wool, most likely I would throw them away.  A carpet weaver thinks differently.  He knows the marvels we can achieve by using small things artfully and lovingly.  Like the carpet weaver, the good wife must be an artist of love.  She must remember her mission and never waste the little deeds that fill her day - the precious bits of wool she's been given to weave the majestic tapestry of married love."

This remarkable book will show you how to start weaving love into the tapestry of your marriage today, as it leads you more deeply into the joys of love.
