". . . Marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children" ("The Family: A Proclamation to the World").

Please don’t misunderstand, I’m not down on Valentine’s Day. In fact, I quite love it. My only concern is for those who struggle with these types of recognition days, as I have in the past, and to help us all better focus on what it means to genuinely love versus focusing on the romantic kind of love that is marketed at every turn.

I am known to be a romantic. I love Jane Austen movies and books with happy endings. In fact, I somehow ended up in the business of romance. In the Mormon book world, I’m called the queen of romance, and I’ve been touted as the number one best-selling LDS romance author for about 15 years now. The truth is that I am definitely a romantic. I won’t deny it. However, I’m not especially fond of romance novels. I set out to contradict a lot of the stereotypes of romance novels — at least the kind that most people think of when they hear the term. I prefer to call it “relationship fiction,” but there’s no such section in any bookstore.

In Shaunti Feldhahn’s book For Women Only, the author asked 400 Christian men, ages 21 to 75, in a national survey what they wished their wives knew, but couldn't tell them. They could have said anything, and did—more understanding, respect, sex, and taking care of herself. But even when a man could have finally had the ultimate say, the number one thing he wished his wife knew was this: how much he loved her.
