  • Ephesians 4 has more wisdom about this. It says, “…and do not give the devil a foothold.” When you harbor bitterness and anger, you give the enemy a foothold in your lives and in your marriage.

  • The true secret was living for Christ. Putting Him first and knowing that they could only live out these ten secrets in His strength.

  • Another thing to remember is to keep personal problems personal.

About the Author


THE BAXTERS ARE A family most of us know and love – even if they are fictional. Years ago when I began writing about John and Elizabeth Baxter and their six adult children, I realized God had given me characters we can all identify with.

We see ourselves in the Baxter Family.

And so it was that on the tenth book with the Baxters, a book called Forever, Elizabeth Baxter took a moment and penned something special for her kids. Something they could hold onto and remember as they married and journeyed through the seasons of life.

She called it her Ten Secrets to a Happy Marriage.

As soon as Forever hit stores, I began to hear that you loved Elizabeth Baxter’s marital advice. The ten secrets resonated with you. They made sense.

Because of the tremendous response, I emailed the list to thousands of you over the years who have asked to see her advice once again.

But you wanted more. A deeper look. Examples and scenarios showing how Elizabeth’s advice might be implemented in your marriage. Finally, I knew it was what I had to do. Take Elizabeth’s Ten Secrets to a Happy Marriage, and hone them, strengthen them, expand them so that they might truly impact you.

That’s what you will find here.

Because Elizabeth Baxter is a fictional character, I have set these ten secrets in the midst of a new short story. A time when Elizabeth was pondering her marital advice and knowing it needed to be expanded.

In that sense, what you are about to read is fiction.

But in every other way, this advice is extremely practical. I believe that as you read this novella you will see the godly reason for each of Elizabeth’s ten secrets. You will know how to incorporate this advice into your marriage. You will have ideas to help your friends use this wisdom in their marriages.

If you loved the Baxter Family, or if you’re just meeting them for the first time, this will help you see what made these characters so special. What made them love the way they loved and live the way they lived. The reason was this: They understood the ten secrets. They made them a part of their lives.

Now you can do the same.

And in the process, I pray you find an extraordinary love. One you may only have dreamed about before this.

Thanks for reading.

Love and joy,

Karen Kingsbury


Dedicated to my husband, Don. You are my Prince Charming and you always will be. When it comes to the beautiful love shared between Elizabeth and John Baxter, thanks for being the one person who knows there’s nothing fictional about the ten secrets to a happy marriage. Elizabeth’s secrets are really ours. We’ve lived them out for twenty-seven years and I pray God will let us keep perfecting them for decades to come. You are my hero, honey. The wind beneath my wings. I’m so thankful for you. May God always be at the center of our love, our lives, and our family. I love you always and forever.
