The solution to a great marriage is the willingness to live life as one who has encountered Christ and play it forward as an encourager to our family!
If you want to be successful in your marriage, you need to “get it”–know and work on real love, cherishing and respecting. By this, we create the happy home that glorifies and serves God. Our desires and pleasures are not God’s priority for our lives; God is our priority, and we are to follow His lead into your marriages!
Yes, God wants us to be joyful, happy, and content; however, being happy means focusing on Him and not on our circumstances.
To have a successful marriage, you must be aware of what you are getting into and prepare for it. The most important guarantee for it to work is to follow His principles from His Word, not what you think, want, or have experienced. Remember, God designed marriage and us. He knows best (Colossians 3:18-19; Ephesians 5:21-27; James 4:7-8; 1 Peter 5:5)!
How will this book help me if I am not a Christian? The tips and principles in my book are called ‘precepts’–timeless Truth. These precepts are in the Bible; the Bible is God’s Truth. The precepts are found in real research—scientific truth. The precepts are shown to be effective far beyond counseling—societal and cultural truth.
If one of you does not embrace any of which we have talked about so far, you will have an extreme strain on your relationship, and you face the odds of a 50% divorce rate. Of the marriages that are left, from my experiences in counseling and research, most are miserable! Please, please consider how important it is to get your act together; you have already said, “I do!”
He who covers over an offense promotes love, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends. Proverbs 17:9
Hebrews 3:12-13; 4:1-2; 5:11-6:3; James 1:22-25
The real authenticity of our Lord, will enable us to build a real authenticity of love and respect, that will in turn build a “Wondrous Marriage!”
God desires us to be transformed agents of His Work and Word!
