Looking for Valentine's interviews?

If you are looking for interviews with a Valentine’s theme, we have a few suggestions for you!

A novel approach to the truth about relationships

Fred Lybrand takes an in-depth look into relationships and dating, plus a little common sense for the real day-to-day world, in his latest book, Glaen. The author has chosen a unique and effective way to present his knowledge of human relationships and romance by creating a storyline that allows readers to walk alongside believable characters as they discover and explore an exciting and more effective way to relate to those with whom they will share life’s most intimate relationships. Having spent more than twenty years as a pastor, Lybrand is deeply involved in caring for people, and he wants others to know the freedom that can be found in relating to others truthfully and without pretense.

Glean introduces the character of Annie Hughes just as she suffers the loss of one of life’s foundational relationships—her parents’ marriage. As a graduate student, Annie suddenly finds herself at a loss to understand how any relationship finds and maintains lifetime staying power, especially a relationship as intimate as marriage.

When Annie meets her professor of Original Non-Fiction, a rather unconventional man named Glaen, her life is set upon a path of both self-discovery and the exploration of romantic relationships. She begins this class with the intention to help others but quickly learns that she must first develop a teachable spirit, and her own faith proves to be the pivotal starting point for her journey. Annie then begins to honestly explore how men and women relate to one another as God designed them to do.

Using Annie’s “research” and “journal” entries as the vehicle to present thought-provoking ideas to the reader, Lybrand first uncovers the lies of a secular world-view and then counters those lies with the truth of God’s design for the marriage relationship. The life changing principles found in Glaen are the gems Lybrand wants readers to take from the story and experience in their own lives and relationships.

Surprise yourself with how great your marriage can be

Daniel Tocchini doesn't want to improve your marriage. He wants to transform it. Or, rather, to show how some simple changes in your marital conversation—the way you talk to yourself and each other—can open your relationship up to God's transforming power.

Drawing on his personal experience and stories of couples he has coached, Tocchini offers a wealth of practical guidance to help you learn to live your marriage "in the light"—talking honestly, listening generously, confronting tricky issues, tuning in to each other's needs and yearnings, and breaking free of the self-centered "consumer thinking" that infects us all. Innovative, insightful, and thoroughly biblical, Tocchini's approach has helped thousands in his popular seminars.

Whether your marriage is in deep trouble or just coasting along, you'll be amazed at what happens when you finally read the User's Guide that God intended.

Sometimes the person farthest away from you, she discovers, is the one who's closest to your heart.
At thirty, Harper fears her chances for a thriving acting career and true love are both fading fast. But when Harper is offered an unexpected role in a Broadway play—as understudy to New York's biggest diva—she wonders if everything is about to change.

Hoping to find love in NYC, Harper reluctantly signs up for an online dating site—but the only match Harper is even remotely interested in lives thousands of miles away. An actress who doesn’t act, searching for love with someone she’s never even seen, Harper longs for God to show her He’s still listening.

Through the contemporary text-message world of internet dating, Harper learns it's possible to care for someone outside her own universe. And as she reaches out through the impersonal world of cyberspace, she becomes more aware than ever of God reaching out to her…
