book cover

A mysterious stranger helps a teenage boy called Ethan rescue his mentor, an elderly father-figure, from drowning when their canoe capsizes in a flooding river. A star athlete, Ethan later gets involved in unsafe sex, which leads to drugs, and gets him blackballed by jealous and gossiping team-mates. The boy is going down, and at times hates himself for it and for hurting his mom who is a caring, loving, and beautiful woman.

After another disastrous episode, where Ethan might have died, the river-stranger turns up again to confront him about his life choices. However, even after rehab, the boy’s condition is marked by a yo-yo attitude which causes massive emotional heartache for his mom.

The river-stranger, after sharing his own amazing history, suggests taking the fight to another level which draws on the resources of God. This begins a new and fascinating sequence of events, including a tornado, which get Ethan’s attention.

The book is a captivating story, packed with adventure in the desert Southwest and in the rivers and lakes of the Midwest USA. But it is also a goldmine of spiritual wisdom for teenagers. The mystery that permeates the story is compelling, and the thrilling ending may call for a tissue or two.

Review

“A story of modern Christian guidance that will interest readers unopposed to heavenly intervention. Though a more or less well-adjusted kid, Ethan’s attitude toward life takes a downturn when he contracts herpes from a cheerleader named Rachel. Popper, ever the Christian optimist, 0 does his best to explain to the young man that his life is not over. Ethan’s attitude continues a downward slide, however, as he experiments with drugs. The nature-filled story makes use of scenery for periods of reflection about weighty matters. Notions of God and morality are never forced on Ethan; rather, they are discussed in open and meaningful ways 0” – Kirkus Reviews

About the book

book cover

NO JUDGES, NO LAWYERS, JUST GREAT COMMUNICATIONS...... Although titled Our Marriage Contract and written by a lawyer; I'm happy to say the book has absolutely nothing to do with the court or U.S. legal system. Instead the book actually explains and shows people how their relationship Expectations...Leads to Disappointment....Disappointments Leads to Resentment and Resentment Leads to Failure.

FROM A MALES PERSPECTIVE......In the book, I'm not writing from an expert or lawyer standpoint. Nope! I wrote the book from an average guy standpoint, who after years of darting and trying to figure why during most of my relationships I was either a hero at times or a big fat zero; even when I tried to do the right thing.

I FINALLY CRACKED THE CODE....So I think. After finally coming to grips that as crude as it may sound; relationships are just like any other of life's fragile unions and in order to be successful there needs to be rules both people must follow to make it work. Now, here's the fun part, part of putting my hypothesis or what I called "cracking the code" to the test, not only did I test and try it out on my then fiancée' and now wife but I tested it on many of my friends who are in relationships or at the early stages of one. To my surprise it worked! Seriously! I was kind of shocked because I'm no Dr. Phil or other relationship expert, I was just a guy who figured it had to be an easier way to get what I wanted out of a relationship, and now I had the answer!

Two years later, Our Marriage Contract "the book" was born and published. I am really happy with the final product because I stayed true to the books mission which was to share my personal experiences and explain in under 65 pages how people can have a great relationship, regardless if they've been in a relationship for 6 months or 6 years, all with just a simple piece of paper. In the book I think women will appreciate The Men's Quick Start Guide (page 17) and men in-turn will surely appreciate The Hostile Love Terms (page 32). In the end both people will know how to simply "ask" for what they not only need but want" in their current or next relationship and have fun doing it! Why? Because, I explain step by step how the process of "getting what you want" requires going to out to dinner along with a few other things designed to bring the couple closer in their relationship. Our Marriage Contract is currently listed on Barnes and Noble, Amazon and Kindle.

excerpt
Valentine’s Day is coming, so I ask my wife, "Honey what do you want for Valentine's Day"? She candidly replies "nothing ", I then say "are you sure"?, She again says "I'm fine"!. Five days later Valentine Day rolls along and because I didn't get her anything "but " all the ladies in her office are receiving flowers, cards, bears, balloons and flowers...all except my wife. And even when she comes home, there's still no flowers, cards candy etc. Now my wife is extremely disappointed at me but she can't say or show it because remember I did asked her. Instead she's disappointed, now what happens if this continues for years? You guessed it, Expectations leads to Disappointment...Disappointment leads to Resentment...Resentment leads to Failure.... Don't think this can happen, well it does and in the book I explain how to avoid that situation so both people ultimately "get what they want".



Tell us about yourself?


First and foremost, I’m a happily married! And I’m not just saying that to be saying that. I’m a guy who feels incredibly blessed for all the little and wonderful things God has offered me in my lifetime.  By trade I’m a Corporate Attorney who again has been blessed with the ability to help my clients prosper and stay out of trouble. I’m a dog parent to a Boxer Beagle mix, named Gemma and married to my best friend. I enjoy a good movie on the couch with my BFF (my wife) or jumping on the motorcycle and grabbing a bite to eat with my wife. My favorite thing besides flea marketing hopping is to get a pedicure alongside my wife, those chairs are Great! Other than that, if you strip away the titles, the degrees, the material possession, I’m just your average everyday guy except I found happiness through dealing with my expectations upfront. 

Tell us about your book?
The book addresses what I call the Miss”Education” of Romance. How many classes or seminars have you attended that teaches people how to have a better relationship or romance? So although titled Our Marriage Contract and written by a lawyer; I'm happy to say the book has absolutely nothing to do with the court or U.S. legal system. Instead the book actually explains and shows people how their relationship Expectations...Leads to Disappointment....Disappointments Leads to Resentment and Resentment Leads to Failure. I wrote the book from an average guy standpoint, who after years of dating and trying to figure why during most of my relationships I was either a hero at times or a big fat zero; even when I tried to do the right thing couldn’t get it right….until I decided to treat a relationship for just what it truly is and use what everybody uses and understands and that’s simple rules…And it worked!

How did you come up with ideas for this book?

I was months away from getting married and super worried about what I read on-line about marriages. No, honestly I was down-right petrified, plus I was worried about failing. Now, I know that may sound weird but just like every relationship I had, it was all great in the beginning and middle but for whatever reasons it ended whether by my actions or the other person. But getting married, that was not as simple as 3-4 weeks of heart-ach after a break up. Divorce was like a badge of shame that would stay with me forever. So basically I came up with the concept after fearing the worst but wanting the best.

What do you hope readers will learn/discover from reading your book?

If the rich and wealthy can use marital or relationship aids to get what they want out of their relationship with success. Why can’t you and I? We’re worth it too, right? Everyday normal people like you and I deserve happy and healthy relationships and great romance. The number # 1 reasons people don’t get the job. Is they don’t ask! The # 1 reasons people don’t get what they want from a relationship, is…you guessed it “They don’t ask”! The book will show you how and WHY you should ask for the things you want in your relationship and not just to expect them. The book teaches us “Expecting leads to Disappointment, Disappointment leads to Resentment and Resentment leads to Failure.    


 What inspired you to write this book?

I think what really inspired me to write the book was first and foremost having a marriage contract in my own relationship work and is still working to this very day. So, thinking” I Finally Cracked the Code”, on what I refer to as the Miss”Education” of Romance and I coming to grips that as crude as it may sound; relationships are just like any other of life's fragile unions and in order to be successful there needs to be rules both people must follow to make it work. I put my hypothesis or what I called "cracking the code" to the test, not only did I test and try it out on my then fiancée' and now wife but I tested it on many of my friends who are in relationships or at the early stages of one. To my surprise it worked! Years later, Our Marriage Contract "the book" was born.

What’s next for you?

Hopefully, to do a few seminars covering the book and its topic, I hope to get the message out to as many women as possible. I believe it all starts with the women and teaching and showing them to stop expecting and start asking, particularly minority women. There’s an old saying that “there‘re not a lot of good black men out there”. I beg to differ and in fact I know there are, women just have to curve their expectations of what a good is and ask for what they want and that’s half the battle”. Think about it! Women say a good man is supposed to have good qualities, so they look and expect to find those things are qualities in a “Quote on Quote “good man” so let’s just say for one second. Woman meet a man for face value, (physical attractions, etc.) if she ask for the things she expects and wants in a relationship AND she gets 85% of those things, now suddenly she has a good man! Well at least by her standards …. The “MissEducation of Romance” being explained and fixed is well on its way.

Book Excerpt One

Chapter 1: Teresa

“Hey Baby,” a voice called from behind me. “Wait up,” I continued to walk a little faster I didn’t want to hear what he had to say. I just had to go and get my mind off of what I had just seen. I tried to walk faster into my apartment where we live around the block from each other, but he had caught up to me. “Wait, we need to talk. He ran, stopping in front of me with sad eyes.

Boy, please! I thought.” “Talk,” I said, “about how for the past three years that we’ve been together, you decided to be with someone else. Is that what you want to talk about? You know what, we talked and good luck with her. I hope she’s the one you want. My three years plus her one week, or day or whatever, she’s got a lot of catching up to do, so goodbye.”

“Teresa, I’m sorry for what I did, I never wanted it to happen this way. You know I love you.”

“You have a funny way of showing it, that’s not love, that’s heartache and you wasted my time loving you, all I ever wanted from you was to be honest like I was to you, but you showed me otherwise. I loved you, cared for you, defended our relationship to people who said we wouldn’t make it, or last less than six months. But yet, here I am looking at you together with another woman, who isn’t me. I’m the fool, I’m the one who was blind, while everybody else could see the real you. So you know what? I’m happy for you and her because now you can see what you had missed out on; a good woman and the only one that can love you the way that I can.”

I went up to my apartment and left him there like he’s dumbfounded and lost. I went into my room, took a shower and listened to Monica's Until It’s Gone. It’s true when people say that you never know what you have until it’s gone.

Book Excerpt Two

Chapter 3: Teresa

The weekend couldn’t get here fast enough. I’ve been dreading for this weekend to come ever since I talked to Tiara and Taylor at work. So, I decided to do some studying for a little while before it was time to get ready.

It was after 8, and I decided to get ready, wash and put my clothes on. You know it takes a while to look fabulous in any occasion. After about five shots of Yellow Tail Wine Moscato, I am ready to get my party on and do me tonight. Just have to wait on Taylor and Tiara. It was about 8:45pm and Tiara and Taylor was here. My girls looked fierce. Tiara has on a short, solid color pink lace panel strap dress with a Givenchy pink cut-out shoe boots, with her Gucci bag purse. Taylor has on a sold blue asymmetrical one shoulder that came above the knee with her blue stilettos with the zipper on the sides. We all have it going on tonight. Our outfits fit perfectly with our 5’7” frame. I’m planning on celebrating real well tonight. We all headed out and gotten in Taylor’s 2013 Silver Mercedes Benz, she turned on the radio and one of my many favorite songs came on; Ciara feat. Nicki Minaj I’m Out. They’re Taylor and Tiara’s favorite singer and rapper. I personally don’t have a favorite, but if I like the song, I like them. This song tonight is speaking to me right now.

“I just went through a break up (oh-yeah-yeah-yeah). But its okay, I got my cake up (oh-yeah-yeah-yeah) Do my hair, put on some make-up (oh-yeah-yeah-yeah) trying going to see what tonight’s going to take us (oh-yeah-yeah-yeah).”

We sang, and sang that song. Every word that I heard was speaking to me. I’m going to have a good time tonight…….. I’m Out!

Love is one of the most consumed terms in the human language. It’s probably the most wrongly used word, but the word that is most necessary when used correctly. With an inaccurate definition of love we find ourselves searching for something to fulfill us, but in all of our searching we miss it. We miss it because unfortunately we don’t recognize that we are already perfectly loved. The problem is not the overuse of the word love. If it were up to God, we would use it at all times. The problem is, we say the word but don’t do any of the actions that come with its meaning. The problem is that we don’t know what God wanted it to mean, because we don’t give God the credit for the most amazing thing He ever created—LOVE!

Perfectly Loved will bring us back to the understanding of love from the creator and embodiment of love Himself. Each chapter includes “Think About It” questions and a study verse that are perfect for individual study, Bible Study, and small group lessons. As you explore how God loves you, you will also build love in your relationships with other people, and God. When you discover “perfect love” you will be able to relinquish your fears, push through your adversity, and serve others with love.
