70+ People Who Say You Should Buy My New Book Now


Today is the official release date of my new book, The 7 Rings of Marriage: Your Model for a Lasting and Fulfilling Marriage. In addition to the book, I’m also releasing a new 8-session DVD-based Bible study in partnership with LifeWay Christian Resources called The 7 Rings of Marriage: Practical Biblical Wisdom For Every Season of Your Marriage.

Both are my first published resources, so today is an exceptionally special day for me. We created a complete page with information about the book, so I won’t spend time in this post telling you a whole lot about the book. You can just visit the web page we created.

Instead, I want to share some words from a few folks who were kind enough to endorse my book, and introduce you to the great people who joined my launch team and agreed to tell all their friends about the book. As I scanned through this list of launch team members, I realized I have some pretty cool people who have some great stuff to share as well.

On the book web page, I go into detail about why I wrote the book and how it can help married couples, engaged couples, or anyone who has a desire to get married one day. I also share a short Q&A video that my wife and I recorded at one of our recent speaking engagements.

Here are seven of the endorsements we’ve received from some prominent marriage speakers, authors, counselors, and podcasters.

[endorsement cite=”Gary D. Chapman” byline=”Ph.D. author of The Five Love Languages”]The 7 Rings of Marriage is a unique approach to enriching your marriage. Marriages either grow or regress. They never stand still. This book will definitely help you have a growing marriage. I highly recommend it to couples of all ages.[/endorsement]

[endorsement cite=”Michael Hyatt” byline=”New York Times bestselling author and blogger, MichaelHyatt.com”]I’ve been following Jackie’s story for a while now. Humble, insightful, and revealing, Jackie is more than an inspiration. He’s like a marriage GPS. His ‘7 Rings’ model can show you exactly where your relationship is and where it’s going. And it’s grounded in the kind of personal experience that proves the program.[/endorsement]

[endorsement cite=”Thom S. Rainer” byline=”President and CEO, LifeWay Christian Resources”]I have been absolutely amazed to watch the trajectory of Jackie Bledsoe’s influence. He is quickly becoming the thought leader in matters of family and fatherhood. He is already an influence in my life. This book captures perfectly the mind and heart of Jackie. I predict it will become a classic in the ministry of marriage and parenting.[/endorsement]

[endorsement cite=”Kevin B. Bullard” byline=”President, Marriage Works!, www.marriageworks.us”]Jackie Bledsoe was able to write this book only because he’s living it! I have been honored to be a part of Jackie’s life over the past few years, and I have seen him experience these various Rings of marriage that every couple encounters at some point. Pay close attention to what you read, then put it into practice. The result will be a better, more loving marriage that brings you years of pleasure.[/endorsement]

[endorsement cite=”Mark and Susan Merrill” byline=”founders of Family First, All Pro Dad, and iMOM”]The 7 Rings of Marriage delivers a powerful message: husbands and wives can love one another as God intended, even during the tough times. Jackie gives specific guidelines to help us address the challenges in marriage that are sure to come, and shines a light on the safest path to progress.[/endorsement]

[endorsement cite=”Justin and Trisha Davis” byline=”Authors of Beyond Ordinary: When a Good Marriage Just Isn’t Good Enough”]Every couple starts marriage with a lot of hope. We hope the longer we are married, the better our marriage will be. But for many couples that isn’t the case…Longer married doesn’t always equate to a better marriage. What I love about The 7 Rings of Marriage is the infusion of hope Jackie gives each of us in our marriage relationship. No matter where you are in your marriage you will find practical and insightful truths that move you closer to God and closer to the person you love most. Don’t just buy this book…read it, absorb it, and apply it.[/endorsement]

[endorsement cite=”Aaron and Jennifer Smith” byline=”founders of HusbandRevolution.com and Unveiledwife.com”]The 7 Rings of Marriage is a refreshing resource that has the power to help marriages in a really practical way. Jackie’s approach to helping married couples understand the state of their marriage and how they can move forward in their relationship is clearly explained as he describes each of the 7 rings. This book is timely. Our hope is that husbands and wives invest into their marriage by reading this book together, challenging themselves to continue on strong in their marriage.[/endorsement]
