Book News! My First Book is On the Way & Wednesday's Prayer Girls & LinkUp Party!

I have some exciting news! My first book, Choosing Him All Over Again: A Story of Romance and Redemption, is being released in January, 2015! {confetti confetti!} It is the story of how our marriage was saved from near divorce, along with practical teaching on faith and marriage. The back cover of the book says:
She has everything that is supposed to make a young woman happy: handsome husband, dream job, new home, great vacations, fun friends, and plenty of money. But she isn't happy.

I hope you like the cover my publisher, Ambassador International, has created. I just love it! There is also a free downloadable Choosing Him Companion Study Guide, written by Pamela Bunn and me, that corresponds with the first fifteen chapters of the book, and the link for the free guide is in the book.

I also included in the back of the book and in the appendices:
  • Nine areas to focus on during separation and reconciliation
  • Eleven checkpoints to refresh your marriage
  • Prayers you can pray for your husband
  • A word to Christian wives married to unbelieving husbands, or to believing husbands not acting as a Christian should

Guess what? You don't have to wait to get the book! The book sells for $14.99 and here are the ways to get the book:

  • Email my publisher at sales@emeraldhouse.com and tell them you want the book, Choosing Him All Over Again, by Juana Mikels.
  • Order from Amazon.com and have it delivered to your door (I will give you link in a couple weeks as soon as it is live!)
  • Order from your local bookstore (The book will be in their systems before Thanksgiving, probably mid-November).
  • Live near me? Come to one of my book signings that I will be posting soon here, and on my social media (see my social media buttons below).  Psst... if you live near me, a sweet neighbor is hosting one on December 1 if you live in my neck of the woods! (email me at juana(at)juanamikels(dot)com and I can make sure you get an invitation. I also have something else locally in the works that I will tell you about soon!
If you're a blogger, let me know if you would like to do a post on the book. I'd love you to, and can get you the photo, and my publicist at Ambassador may be able to send you the book (or the PDF)! You may contact me at juana(at)juanamikels(dot)com  or media(at)emeraldhouse.com.

  1. Please pray for the creative designer at my publisher (Hannah) as she completes the book for production to roll off the presses next month. What can I pray for you or your loved ones?

  2. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the cover! And cannot wait to read it and I most certainly want one! I also secretly, maybe not so secretly, hope you come near Birmingham for a signing!
    We got to keep Libby last night! It was out of the blue but we loved every minute. And she is 4 months old today! So far she is doing exactly what a 4 month old should do, no delays. Even rolling over! Praise You Father!

    1. Oh Jana, I'm so glad you like the cover! I hope we can meet one day, and just maybe at a signing! Oh, Praise God that you got to keep Libby! What a fast answer to prayer! How wonderful that she is progressing so well!! Thank you, Lord Jesus! Thank you for praying last week for the choral meeting at DD. Normally about 8 attend, but 27 attended!! Thank YOU, Jana for praying. Nothing is insignifcant to our Great God when we offer it to Him!
