Beautiful Modern Married Readers, I have a confession to make.

I love my own blog.

Sometimes I forget things I wrote and then read them again and think, “well that was a delightfully smart day”.

Or I’ll read an interview we had, like this one or this one and think, “Wow, thanks to this blog, I get to talk to the coolest people on earth and share their stories with the best readers ever.” [Yes, that’s you of course.]

Speaking of you, I love you – yes you, for taking time out of your crazy busy Twitter-Booked Pinteresting life to read a few words about life, love and marriage and I get uber-excited when I have something fabulous to share that I think you will love.

Well this is one of those times when I could not possibly be more excited. Imagine a Mariachi band playing to exploding fireworks in my brain right now.

Today Super-Star-Blogger-Turned-Best-Selling-Author, Fawn Weaver is electronically here with us to chat about the Happy Wives Club book, the power of love and the beauty of marriage.

Fawn’s fabulously inspiring book, is now a New York Times *and* USA Today best seller and figuratively flying off shelves all over the country (and the world!).

I get exponentially excited the more I even think about it. I hope you find this interview as inspiring as I do because really, Mariachi bands and fireworks in your brain are totally fun times.

Here we goooooooooooooooooooooooooo

MM: Tell us about yourself in 5 sentences.

Fawn Weaver: I am a lover of life. I am a lover of people. I am my husband’s only lover (and he, of course, is mine). I love God and all things that live, breathe and grow. And although I’ve traveled the world, my favorite place to be, is still at home in the arms of my husband.

MM: Tell us about your latest project.

Fawn Weaver: My debut book, Happy Wives Club, hit stores January 7, 2014 and it chronicles my journey through 12 countries and 18 cities in search of the universal secrets to a happy marriage.

Interviewing couples happily married 25 years or more I discovered something fascinating. There were twelve things each of the couples did consistently. Completely different cultures, spanning across 6 continents, and yet the secrets to their marriages were the same.

It’s not like any other marriage book to ever hit the market. It’s like Eat, Pray, Love meets The 5 Love Languages and I am so excited to share it with the world.

MM: Why do you do what you do?

Fawn Weaver: Love and hope. I want people to believe in love again. And not just a lover for this moment, but a deep, passionate love that lasts a lifetime. This world needs hope and no matter the question, love is the answer.

MM: One of my favorite management principles is “Stop, Start, Keep” the idea is that there are things we should stop doing, start doing and keep doing that will make us successful. What should we “stop, start, and keep” to make our marriages stronger?

Fawn Weaver:

Stop any negative thoughts about marriage or your spouse before they have time to take root.
Start praising your spouse for all the things they do well, encouraging them to do that even more.
Keep the faith until the very end.

Fawn Weaver Marriage Quote

MM: What is your favorite inspirational quote about love or marriage?

Fawn Weaver: Seems completely narcissistic to quote myself but this is the first thing that came to mind when you asked the question:

“Happiness in marriage is a moment by moment choice. A decision to love, forgive, grow and grow old together.”

MM: Complete these sentences:

The secret to a happy marriage is…not a secret. It is a mutual respect that leads to trust that culminates in a daily choice to be happy no matter what may be going on externally.

What I know is true about love is…it is real, it is lasting, it is God’s greatest gift to us all.

The single most important thing we can do for the person we love is…love them as they most desire to be loved.

The biggest myth about marriage is…it can’t last.

I can create a life I love by…loving the life I’ve created.

Happy Wives Club Founder, Fawn Weaver marriage quote

    I’m so excited for Fawn, and so happy to learn that her book is a New York Times bestseller! Doesn’t this feel like such a positive sign – that so many peope want to read about this?! I love her (and your!) message, Maggie! SO… What I know about true love is: it is real. And it’s certainly worth waiting for.

  2. Natalie says

    What I know about true love is that you don’t have to have proof from anyone to know that you are experiencing it.

  3. Brandi B. says

    What I know about true love is….you both aren’t going to agree on everything 24/7. Love takes some work from both sides. You need to be grateful everyday though, even on the bad days because at least you have someone to love and someone that loves you. There is a lot of people out there that would love to be in your shoes. Love is worth fighting to keep….I have been with my hubby for almost 22 years now, we have 5 beautiful kids together and have been through some bumpy patches in life but we pushed through it and now we are more in love then ever before. :)

  4. Teresa R says

    What I know about true love is . . . it starts with a relationship with Jesus. He is true love and when you know His love, then you can show true love to your spouse. True love holds you and your spouse together through calm waters and rough seas, through sunshine and raging storms. True love is the chain that binds you and your spouse together.

  5. Stephanie H says

    What I know about true love is…it takes determination. You have to determine to make it a priority because so many other good things and people will take up your time and focus, leaving little time and energy for what really matters most.

  6. Tracey M. says

    I would absolutely LOVE read this book. It came highly recommended to me by a close friend. What I know about true love is . . . that it should be unconditional and based on God’s Word. I don’t know much but I am willing to open my heart and learn more. Thank you for the opportunity to win this much needed book! Oh and please tell you BFF one of your readers said, “Happy Birthday.”
