Answer After reading "Rise Into Love," many people have written asking if they may read this passage at the wedding for somebody they care about.

To every person who has this heartfelt response, I am deeply honored for your connection to this work and am grateful to support you in sharing it with your loved ones.

You may use it under two conditions: First, is that it is not modified in any way (except for my recommendation below to use their real names) and secondly is that I am acknowledged as the author. That said, just remember to make the following minor changes and you're good to go! :)

Instead of wife/husband in the following paragraph, use the actual names of the bride and groom (or bride/bride or groom/groom if appropriate):

You may think you came together in marriage for specific reasons. Perhaps because BRIDE'S NAME is compassionate, playful, and generous. Or because GROOM'S NAME is a true romantic who balances the gifts and needs of family with being a caring and attentive partner.


Secondly, you may replace the 3 qualities "compassionate, playful, and generous" with the qualities of the bride you most admire, and the "true romantic who balances the gifts and needs of family with being a caring and attentive partner" with the qualities of the groom that you most admire. This will give the reading a more personalized feel, while still staying true to its essence.
