The Beginning

Welcome to the DFH site! Here you’ll find a little bit about the book along with updates, announcements, events and more. We’d also love to hear from you — stories, testimonies, and even your own letters to be shared on the site.

Advance copies of Dear Future Husband are currently available here. Release to bookstores and online will be on March 30, 2010.


It’s hard to grasp what began from a summer of compiling letters from old journals while the husband was on an extended away somehow morphed into a manuscript that returned an acceptance letter from a publisher, making reality this bound paperback I hold in my hands.

This past year has been quite a process, both in all the intricacies and stages involved in publication, but moreso one of sanctification, humility, pruning and discipline, drawing me, many times in desperation, [back] to the Love by which this book stands for and the reason a very private me decided to share years of personal thoughts and letters.

My cling-to passage from the past months, wherein I found rest and saw His promises mercifully poured on me:

Come, let us return to the LORD.
He has torn us to pieces
but he will heal us;
he has injured us
but he will bind up our wounds.

After two days he will revive us;
on the third day he will restore us,
that we may live in his presence.

Let us acknowledge the LORD;
let us press on to acknowledge him.
As surely as the sun rises,
he will appear;
he will come to us like the winter rains,
like the spring rains that water the earth.

// Hosea 6:1-3


An immense gratitude goes to Tate Publishing for this unspeakable opportunity and the amazing team I had the privilege of working with over the weeks. Thank you, also, to the small pocket of family/friends who prayed unwaveringly and saw me to completion.
