Newton-John tackled a subject very close to her heart with 2005's Stronger than Before.

It includes the track "Can I Trust Your Arms," which she co-wrote with her daughter Chloe.
The following year,
Newton-John made the album Grace and Gratitude available only through the drugstore chain Walgreen's. Filled with music intended to help people relax, the recording was designed to complement a line of Newton-John's wellness products for women. Newton-John spent much of the fall of 2006 on tour to support her new album.
Tragically, Newton-John suffered another hardship in June 2005. Her boyfriend of nine years, Patrick McDermott, 48, vanished when he failed to return from a fishing trip off the California coast.
Three years later, however, she married American entrepreneur John Easterling. The bride and groom attended a private Incan spiritual ceremony on a mountaintop at Cuzco, Peru, on June 21, 2008, followed by a second and legal ceremony on June 30 on Jupiter Island, Florida. Easterling is the founder and president of Amazon Herb Company, which sells botanical supplements from the rainforest. The business is based in Jupiter. The couple met through a friend more than 15 years prior to their wedding, but didn't become romantically until 2007, according to People magazine.
