The Transition

Today is an amazing day. Today is March 19th, the Feast of St. Joseph. One year ago today, Catholic Husband launched.

It’s truly amazing the difference a year can make. One year ago, I never would have imagined that I would still be on this mission. This blog has outlasted all other blogs I’ve created… combined!

One year ago, Alison and I had just found out that we were parents. Now, today, Benedict is here, sitting up, and laughing.

I wanted to mark this day in a very special way. Nothing could better encapsulate this past year than the release of my first book, The Transition.

Writing this blog, and authoring a book are two dreams that I’ve had for a long time. Today, they are both a reality. I wrote the book because we only get one chance to build our marriage right. I don’t want other guys to make the mistakes that I did or be ignorant as I was. This book sets you up for success. It walks you through the entire engagement process from thinking about proposing to your big day. I truly believe that this is a resource that can significantly improve men's experience of engagement.

Both the blog and the book are realities that were made possible by you! I am daily honored by your support. It’s a great honor and joy personally for me to be able to share transparently my marital journey with you. I love interacting with you and learning from you. None of this would be possible without you, the reader. I hope that Alison and I’s efforts in this project have made your life better.

As I reflect on this past year, I’m even more excited about the many good things that I have in store for you. We’ve got a full schedule for 2014 of great resources and projects to spread the good news of marriage further!

Thank you for your support. I can’t wait to travel on this journey for another year with you.
