“This is the first book about marriage from a Christian perspective that doesn’t gloss over the hard stuff.”
This book is for every wife, whether newlywed or married for fifty-plus years. Most women recognize that healthy marriage requires both commitment and hard work, but how can a wife continue to thrive when marriage goes awry?
We trust that these resources will meet a need in your life, and give you strength and courage to continue working on your marriage.
Check out the categories below for marriage resources we love and recommend:
- Gifts of Hope
- Marriage Writers
- Marriage Group for MEN ONLY
These courses are designed to strengthen your faith. Both courses are based in biblical truth and both courses can be used to strengthen your marriage.
