About the Author

Donna Brickman

In the 1990ís, while working in the domestic violence field as a victim advocate, the Washington State law changed requiring a bachelorís degree to continue working in this field. I had a three-year RN degree from St. Paulís Hospital in Vancouver, British Columbia, but not the bachelorís degree. I went back to school for a degree in Behavioral Science through Bastyr University. In doing so, I developed the BE PREPARED AND ENRICHED IN YOUR MARRIAGE Manual.

My husband and I were married in July 1969, and have been blessed with a wonderful relationship for over 40 years. After writing the manual, we have been doing Pre-Marital Counseling and Marriage Mentoring, using this material. My desire is that many couples will benefit in strengthening their relationship through an in-depth look at the many facets that make up healthy relationships. We get more sex education in school then we get on relationships. A marriage is a relationship that will affect our lives, every day. We can either succeed or fail. My desire is that you will succeed through the use of this manual.
