_x000D_ Relationship topics are of interest to us, especially marriage. Do you have secrets to share on how to keep a marriage healthy and happy? Do you have solutions for keeping marriages strong enough to survive the tough times?_x000D_

_x000D_ We are also interested in issues concerning senior citizens and how that impacts family life and the children in the family._x000D_

_x000D_ Stress relief, inspiration, and humor are valuable tools for parents when raising challenging kids. These types of submissions will also be accepted._x000D_

_x000D_ Articles should be conversational, interesting, and fun. Our site has a Christian slant, but we are more concerned with teaching family values than presenting a preachy sermon. We want uplifting, supportive, and encouraging endings regardless of the topic. Let us know if the article has appeared elsewhere.

Length: We will accept original articles between 300 & 500 words, no poetry or fiction at this time.

Rights: We will buy only one - time rights, but would appreciate being able to archive your article for three months.

Payment: We want to avoid the risk of overextending our new Dot.com, so we will begin slowly. We will buy only a few articles each month at this time.We will pay $25 for original, first time printed material and $10 for reprints. Checks will be mailed within two weeks of appearance of your article.

Tips: If your submission is accepted, we will require a five sentence bio and a photo of the writer.

How to Submit: We can accept submissions in Word formats. Please check submissions for spelling and grammar and make sure the work is your own. Copy and paste your submission right into your e-mail rather than send attachments.

Response Time: As we begin, we intend to respond to manuscripts within one week. After we get busier, it will be longer.
