My name is Tonia M. Phillips. I live in Pasadena, Texas. I have been retired from Memorial Hermann Hospital for almost ten years. I am a wife and mother of five. My husband and I have been married for about twenty years and counting. I decided to write this book to help others to understand the process of marriage, God’s guidelines to go by, and his definite will for our marriage as one. Growing up in a family of fourteen and twelve, living was not easy, especially being one of two largest families on my street and the only family that had a minister for a father.
