Excerpts from Mary Ellen Danuser regarding her book:

I address issues on interracial relationships in my new book.  'Freedom to Choose' sheds light as to why some people choose to date, marry outside their race.

I BELIEVE that issues on interracial relationships are not fairly understood in today's society.  This is partly attributed to the lack of public awareness on the subject, which in turn is the result of scarcely documented literature deeply addressing the case from the rare personal viewpoint.  With this in mind, I have put together "Freedom to Choose - Is Skin Color Really an Issue?” a wonderful compilation of true stories from interracially married couples all over the US, including our story. 

"My book is about the different experiences that interracial/intercultural relationships encounter and why individuals choose to date/marry outside their race.”  The HIGHLIGHT of "Freedom to Choose" is about the need for people to be educated on the subject. Indeed, these stories deserve to be heard and understood."

The book mainly tells the story of me and my spouse, interpolated with the narratives of the couples I have interviewed across the states.  It offers a rare look into the lives of all mentioned couples, revealing insights as to the rationales why some people choose their mates outside their race - a portrait of motive, intent, and personal choice.  The real names of the pairs are withheld but the experiences shared are authentic and real.

Fasting has changed my life, and I believe it can change yours! This book is my testimony. I do not eat the way I use to anymore. Food is no longer a substitute for solving problems, and the best part is how my relationship with God changed. Through my personal fasting journey, I will share steps for you to take that will help you during fasting. I am going to get real, so you can identify with my journey when you take yours. As you read these pages, I will answer many questions and you will find out what to expect when you fast. Join me with an open mind and willing heart to see the advantages Christian fasting brings. Allow yourself to be more productive and intimate with a loving God who wants to communicate with you. You will find closeness with God unlike what you have ever experienced. I encourage you to make this commitment to God. HE’S GOT YOU! Let’s do this! Get ready for a life-changing experience when you fast
