Run-DMC’s Rev. Run Simmons & His Wife, Justine, Release ‘Old School Love’ – NEW BOOK ALERT!!!

Hello World,

So I’m a ’70s baby. In fact, I am the same age as hip-hop! There were several groups who brought hip-hop to the masses and Run-DMC was definitely one of them! Now, Run-DMC is known as an old school group, but the old school is the best school. (Yeah, I know I sound old. Deal…) Years later, one of the members of the talented trio found the Lord (as we all should) and became Rev. Run instead of just Run. And we learned more about his life as a family man in the reality show Run’s House!  With just about two weeks left before Single Awareness Day otherwise known as Valentine’s Day, I’m so glad that Rev. Run and his wife Justine are releasing a book about their happy marriage! Released today, below is the official synopsis of Old School Love: And Why It Works:

RUN-DMC’s iconic rapper Joseph “Reverend Run” Simmons and his wife, Justine, share their secrets to lasting love and the guiding principles that have kept them together for more than 20 years. Written with Amy Ferris.

This is a book about love.
The kind of love that will keep you warm at night—that will keep you feeling safe and sound.
The kind of love that will get you through some dark times; get you through some hard and yes, some tough times.
The kind of love that will make you laugh, that will make you smile, that will make you nod knowingly.
The kind of love that is nurtured and watered and grows—from a seedling to a flower.
The kind of love that is desperately needed in the world right now, shared and sprinkled everywhere.

Old School Love is a book to help you find the kind of soul-filling love you desire, written by a couple who has built a strong and joyful relationship amid the pressures, pitfalls, and temptations of the entertainment industry. Rev Run and his wife, Justine, have been blessed with a devoted partnership that has inspired others. In this homage to classic courtship, Rev and Justine reveal the secrets to their marriage’s longevity and happiness.

Each chapter of Old School Love offers stories, anecdotes, and memories of Rev and Justine’s marriage, their family, their experiences, their passion, and their deep faith and belief in God. Some will make you laugh, some will make you think, and some will make you cry. Yet all will make you wiser—more beautiful for the wear—and encourage you to be a kinder, more generous, and better human. Their reflections are bookended by a verse or line from scripture, a saying, or a favorite quote and a sampling of personal wisdom.

Over two decades strong, Rev and Justine’s partnership is an inspiration. With Old School Love they are spreading their message of positivity, and creating a legacy for all of us to embrace and share. Powerful and life-changing, this little gem of a book is about magic, and miracles, and yes, the irrefutable power of love.

Old School Love includes 8 pages of photos from Rev and Justine’s personal collection.
