Today is an interesting day: both Ash Wednesday (or beginning of Lent) and the day before Valentine's Day, a moment when we pause to show our love to those around us who are a gift in our lives every day of the year. And for you today, I have a gift: our friend and contributor Ellen Gable Hrkach has shared with me that her beautiful book Come My Beloved: Inspiring Stories of Catholic Courtship is free on Kindle today through Saturday, February 16th. Here's some information from Ellen on this special gift:

Come-My-Beloved-jpgWant to treat yourself to a beautiful Valentine's gift? Come My Beloved: Inspiring Stories of Catholic Courtship is FREE on Kindle today through Saturday (Feb. 12-16).

Come My Beloved: Inspiring Stories of Catholic Courtship is a celebration of faith and enduring love. This compilation contains 12 courtship/dating stories which will inspire, captivate and entertain readers. Some of the stories include: a widow with eight children meets a widower with six children; a man asks his live-in girlfriend "what if we stopped having sex," and is greeted with tears of joy; an atheist falls in love with her Catholic Prince Charming; a woman prays to God for a husband and years later finds herself falling in love with a seminarian; a sailor prays a novena to marry the right girl. What these and all the stories illustrate is that God is the ideal matchmaker.

Whether you're courting, engaged to be married, newlyweds, or celebrating your jubilee years together, this terrific resource offers something for anyone looking to grow closer to God and to one another in a loving relationship!
