A Little Bit About Me
I’m a wife, a mother, and the author of five books on the ways in which our culture undermines marriage and family. My passion is to equip women with the information and the tools they need to build happy, balanced lives.
My most recent book is Women Who Win at Love: How to Build a Relationship That Lasts.
“Over and over,” writes Alexandra Solomon of Northwestern University, “my undergraduates tell me they try hard not to fall in love during college, imagining that would mess up their plans.”
This message is particularly geared toward women, who are encouraged to forget about marriage and children for the foreseeable future.
The result is a hookup culture. After all, if a woman's professional life is considered the number one most important thing in life, there’s no reason to date. The whole purpose of dating is to determine whether or not the other person is a match. Why go through all the rigmarole if marriage isn’t on your radar? Might as well hookup until you’re ready to settle down.
And yet, according to a study by the American Psychological Association (APA), 63% of college-age men and 83% of college-age women say they prefer a traditional relationship to an uncommitted sexual one.
Unfortunately, schools offer nothing in the way of relationship skills education. It’s time to change that.
The outlook for lasting love is no better post-college. In fact, most American singles—female and male—want to be in a committed relationship but aren’t. Marriages and relationships have been terribly strained for many reasons. How can men and women find their way together despite living in a culture that celebrates the notion that the sexes are the same and that men are defective by nature?
Successful dating and marriages will occur when women shift their priorities and start demanding more from themselves and from men. To that end, I help young women map out a happy, balanced life and help older women think differently about men and marriage.
My underlying message is simple: When it comes to men, marriage, work and family, think and act counter-culturally and you'll be successful in life and in love.
My talks are highly engaging and practical. Participants will go home with plenty of ideas they can immediately implement when it comes to their love lives.
