Whether your marriage was blissful or challenging, lengthy or short, it didn’t end the way you imagined. Regardless of how you found yourself without a life partner, you may be at a point where you’d like to experience the love of a spouse again. Authors Shirley and Jim Mozena experienced devastating losses and then struggles in their relationships before finding renewed love with each other, and in Second Chance at Love they offer their insights to these difficult questions:

The authors approach their answers with practical reality and their own vulnerability. They share the experiences of their first marriages, their second marriages, their journeys through what seemed like devastating losses, and the gifts of finding love and another chance to share their lives with a spouse after death and divorce.

In addition to the down-to-earth guidance on the situations you face when considering marrying again, Shirley and Jim have created valuable questionnaires to identify issues and facilitate discussions with potential mates. The information contained in this book will give you confidence and peace as you navigate these hopeful waters.

Author Interview for A Second Chance at Love:


What role does God play in your writing career? Before I begin to write, I ask God to give me the words to convey my thoughts to those who would read them. Each Friday I write a blog. First I read a devotional, and Scripture where I ask God to reveal who I should write to and what to say.


What is the hardest aspect of writing? Doing it! Once I get words on the computer, I’m fine. But it’s a discipline just like eating the right foods, exercising, and practicing an instrument. I play the violin, but pick your discipline. It’s all the same—you have to set yourself up to write, practice, eat right, whatever.


How does your family support your writing career? My husband Jim is very supportive. He listens to my first writes, encourages me to keep on doing it. I am extremely blessed with his encouragement.


What projects are you working on currently? I’ve been compiling more than three years of my blogs and hope to write a one-year devotional. Also busy writing weekly blogs, and submitting articles to magazines and newspapers.


What’s your favorite time of day?  The morning. It’s my time to read Scripture and talk to God. Then my husband and I walk three miles most days. I enjoy seeing the changes of each season on our walks. Before we leave our house, I take a stroll around my yard (spring and summer mostly) and check what’s growing or blooming.
