The Person I Marry
Things I’ll Think About Long Before Saying “I Do”
Everyone knows what makes up a person’s outside, things like hair color, clothing or height. But isn’t the inside what really matters, when it comes to friends, and especially when it comes to marriage! In these pages young children are encouraged to look for and desire integrity, kindness, faithfulness, purpose, honor, helpfulness, teachability, and humility.

Winsomely adorable oil paintings by Jan Bower grace every page, along with the poetic wisdom of award-winning author Gary Bower.
These pages will inspire readers of all ages (but especially focused on ages 4-12) to place a higher value on the character of their future marriage partner, and to see less importance in appearance and other shallow criteria. Young children, teens, even grown-ups will benefit from the counsels of this book.
