Our Book

My husband Manuel P. Santos, M.D., and I are thrilled to announce that our Catholic marriage advice book is available for purchase on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.To check availability in local, independent bookstores, you can click here. Our publisher Ave Maria Press also frequently offers special discounts through its site here.

What's in this book of ours? Through Scripture, catechesis, and personal stories, we teach couples crucial lessons such as:

•          Becoming united to one another in body, mind, and soul
•          Learning to love your in-laws
•          Bringing meaning and balance to your work life
•          Taking stewardship of your finances
•          Being a family at the service of other families
•          Welcoming children with joy
•          Accepting special-needs children with open arms
•          Raising children to be successful saints
•          Staying together through praying together
          Imitating the example of the Holy Family

The end of each chapter provides three bonus features to stimulate in-depth conversation, greater understanding, and positive change: 1) Conversation Starters; 2) Action Plan; and 3) Catechism Corner, with a quote from the Catechism of the Catholic Church to think about or even memorize. In the appendices, you'll find tips on how to organize a book club in your parish or home plus numerous additional online and print resources.

Our book is ideal for couples to read and discuss on their own either before or after the wedding. It is also a perfect choice for small groups like book clubs, pre-Cana programs, and marriage enrichment programs. Free downloadable worksheets for each chapter are available at this link. By encouraging couples to gather together in community to learn about these issues, our book motivates people to help themselves and help each other at the same time.

  1. Just curious. Is your title, "Our Book" or "Can We Cana?" or are you waiting to surprise us? The chapters sound very practical, perhaps even useful for my husband and me who are about to celebrate our 50th. As mother of 12 grown children, with only one still single and one a Franciscan Sister, I can see a treasure of helpful topics for their investigation. Do you offer volume discounts? :-)

    1. Hey

      I wanted to ask...

      Does your man's behavior totally confuse you?

      Does he say one thing and do another?


      Saying he's going to call...but then????

      Crazy huh?

      If you have a few minutes, I'd like to introduce you to Bob.

      >>> Meet Bob Here! <<<

      Bob explains a lot of men's very weird behavior.

      And he reveals how you can use all of this behavior to your advantage.

      >>> Find Out How To Understand Your Man Here <<<

      And I love the part where he talks about "The #1

      Man Repellant In Existence."

  4. My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a comment that suggested that Dr OMNISM HEALING HOME can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr OMNISM HEALING HOME Contact him today if you are in need of his help on Email: omnismhome@yahoo.com .or whatsapp +233575619187 .

  5. I was married at 32 and immediately tried to get pregnant. When I was unable to conceive I had blood tests for fertility and was told that I had an FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) of 54 and would not be able to have children. Even though the doctors knew that I had been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis since age 25, no one bothered to check my thyroid levels. my TSH was measured at .001. My Synthroid dosage was lowered. a friend advise me to contact a spiritualist who help with fertility with his medicine, i collected his contact and explain my situation to him he prepared for me a herbal medicine which i took as describe by him. became pregnant very quickly, I had a successful pregnancy. I have my baby august 2017. to get pregnant at age 35 with my 2nd child in september 2019, thank you sir , this is his email contact if you require his help babaka.wolf@gmail.com or Facebook at priest.babaka

  6. Life has been filled with challenges ever since my husband left me and move on with another woman. Most times i had thought of ending it all. Things became worst when I lost my home, family and all to Hurricane Matthew and I became a refugee in my own country, Haiti. The only property I had left was an Internet-enabled phone in my pocket. One faithful day, i found one Doctor Samura on the Internet, on Face-book. Someone from the US had testified of many great things that Doctor Samura had done for her and her family. I contacted him and the rest they say is history today i am happily married to a soldier I met in camp, and i am getting my happiness back again. I cannot keep this happiness to myself because i am not selfish person. You too can contact Doctor Samura on E-mail: SAMURATELLERSPELL@GMAIL.COM or call him on phone +2347030554802 whatsapp.
