Hi Jennie. As a wife and marriage/relationships blogger, I have read books, watched shows and sat in talks all talking about dating and marriage. Your book is a breath of fresh air – it is candid and real and stands on a scriptural foundation. It is relevant to the African audience with topics like dealing with in-laws being very context-aware. I enjoyed reading this book and learnt a lot. I hear you are writing another book – please launch it soon.

Morning dear Jennie, i loved last nights topic on polygamy. I disagreed with the men on the podium as they came out selfish by saying they want to help the women by marrying many. The truth is that they are greedy men who want to satisfy their sexual desire and in doing so trying to justify their action through the bible. This is a twisted kind of thinking on their part. As you clearly said, the bible is clear for one man and one woman. Its a high time that this genetation embraces the true word of God. I would rather be single than be in a polygamous relationship. God bless you Jennie for your advice and wisdom that has been bestowed on you. Keep on the good fight dear, you have my support. Blessed Tuesday
Shallom Woman of God,
I just want to thank you for being an inspiration to me and i believe many other women out there.
Last year around a time like this, i was in trouble big time and everything that could go wrong went wrong in my life, the auctioneers had carried my all my stuff because of house rent, and to make it worse the Landlord kicked me out of the house, then my husband packed up his bags and left me with the babies….., i didn’t know which why to go or what to do everything was overwhelming. So in the midst of this troubles and pain I was asking the Lord what to do, how to go about it because the truth is sometimes i felt like giving up……. It reached a point I was even asking God if it would be easier if I died, but on Saturday 30th July 2011, The Lord directed me to Daughters of Zion, and you were the speaker. Listening to you gave me life and strength to move on….i said, oh, so am not the only one? If Jenny could do it, so can I. And guess what, i discovered that we share the same birthday… I was also born on July 30th!! I took your advice and decided to “discover” myself, and relax in the Hands of the Almighty, and to tell you the truth, my life has never been the same since that day.
God does have his ways of encouraging and lifting people up, and He used you to encourage, lift me up and be such a blessing in my life. May God continue to bless you and use you to be a blessing to other women like you have been to me. Be Blessed.
I hope this email finds you.

I am inspired by the fact that you have read many books which is clearly demonstrated from your bibliography and not to mention your many references from the Holy Bible.

I finished the book, I happened to be off when it arrived and I had all the time. It is a wonderful book for a young girls intending to get married, I only wish it was there when I was young. It speaks very real things to a relationship, what you have written not only can help somebody who wants to get married but it can also help in other relationships too.
I started wondering why I did not get married myself, even though I think about it from time to time. I think its because I was scared of how to relate to a man. Having never had a father figure in my life, I did not know how to relate to a man. Having no one to advise me how to go about it, the marriage institution scared me to death. But today when I look back, I remember my mom always being so sad, I think she was really overwhelmed at having 3 children and being a single mom, I also think she was lonely, which is a horrible feeling. So the idea of her advising me how to get married was out of question. But there are always things we can get involved with in order not to be lonely. One can join organizations, like there are so many volunteer organizations, I would like to join, but my job is on the way, and I have to supervise Sarah with her homework. Its a pity she died a very lonely person.
I try and think positive even though I did not get married, at least she gave me an education and a strong personality that I get myself anywhere I want to go.
Life is tough, we just have to do the best with what life has presented us.
I will recommend your book to everybody I meet.
All the best
I recently purchased your book Marriage Built to Last at the JCC daughters of Zion & it is blessing me.
Am a single lady 30 years and looking forward to get married though I must say it is tough finding a mate.
I was wondering if you could mentor me and how you usually go about it.
I identify with you because you are a strong woman which i also consider myself to be. Am a lawyer by profession and very principled.
I keep wondering what i do wrong in my relationships or maybe it’s not my fault it is that i cannot get principled & progressive men with a vision.
Marriage Built to Last has been an eye opener to me. The book tackles the main issues in a relationship pre and post the proposal in an easy-to-understand manner. It is funny, informative, loving, and honest. I can attest to it’s legitimacy since I lived most of my teenage and twenties’ years in the Karinas home. The book is a must in every home, single or married. My only wish is that Jennie should have written this book sooner.
