January 7th was our 24th wedding anniversary and a friend of mine asked ‘What has contributed to marriage going well for you?’
So I wrote down some answers for her and decided to share them on my blog.
I could spend a whole day talking about this topic… I listed some of the more significant things that have contributed to the progress of our marriage below (not in order of importance):
* Of course there are more things on the list but these are the ones that stood out for us.
The subject of marriage is one that is dear to my heart so I made a special page on my website on the theme of marriage and share some resources. On our 10th anniversary we made a booklet called ‘Getting to know you’ – we came up with different questions on varying themes as a way to share more and explore deeper. I share that booklet as a gift download on the page of resources as well.
Here is a link to the resources page on love and marriage.

In 2009 I released an album titled ‘Birds of Love’ on the theme of love and marriage to be given as a gift to friends and loved ones.
Birds of Love is a treasury of uplifting words and inspiring songs specially created for weddings, anniversaries and an ideal gift for your loved ones. It includes a diverse five song album from varied sources with five additional instrumental tracks for live performances and background at special events. The album includes inspiring quotations from Abdu’l-Baha, features a famous Bible quotation, ‘Love is Patient’ and song ‘Where There Is Love’ featuring a poem by French author Hentri Matisse and an Apache Wedding Blessing.
