What People Are Saying
"I share a deep affinity with the Popcaks and the way they present the faith. Their latest book, Just Married, is loaded with their typical winsome wisdom and advice. They help newly married couples unpack the great mystery of marriage and discover the divine love story that is behind their own. Every married couple—newly married or otherwise—will benefit from this book."
—Christopher West, author of Fill These Hearts
"Just Married should be required reading for every recently married Catholic Couple. Christian marriage is a call to heroic love. It should not be surprising that living this vocation well does not happen without prayer and effort. Greg and Lisa provide many helpful insights into the challenges that young couples encounter as well as practical strategies on how to overcome what otherwise will become obstacles to their happiness. Married couples honor and praise God most beautifully by striving daily to grow in their love for each other in the Lord. There is nothing more important that a couple can do to build up the Church and make a better world than to do whatever it takes to make their marriage strong and healthy. The Popcaks provide a practical pathway to help couples enjoy the abundant life God desires for them in this world and to help each other make it together to heaven."
—Most Reverend Joseph F. Naumann, Archbishop of Kansas City in Kansas
"Thank you, Greg and Lisa! Just Married is a treasure for today's newly (and not so newly!) married couples. A guide this rich with grace and wisdom can only come from a deeply faithful Catholic married couple seasoned through years of marriage, professional practice, and prayer. This is theology of the body for the newly married couple."
—Damon Owens, Executive Director , Theology of the Body Institute
"We are so happy to be able to give the young people in our lives a copy of Just Married. This is a book filled with personal testimony, evidence from science, years of counseling experience, and, most importantly, a hopeful vision of marriage rooted in faith and nourished by prayer."
—Tim and Sue Muldoon, authors of Six Sacred Rules for Families
