About the Book
"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.
Written with Amy Ferris, "Old School Love" includes eight pages of photos from Rev and Justine's personal collection.
