Marriage Link – FireprooftheMovie.com

On September 26, the new movie from the creators of “Facing the Giants” arrives in theaters.

Fireproof” is a story about a firefighter husband and his wife who are going through very difficult times in their marriage.  The various issues they face may seem familiar to many of us, so this movie may hit close to home. The story goes on to show the attempt to work the marriage out before following through with the divorce. From what I’ve seen of comments about “Fireproof“, it is ultimately a message of hope in God’s power to restore what was thought to be lost.

“Facing the Giants” is one of my top ten all time favorite movies.  That being the case, along with my obvious passion for trying to help others have the great marriage God intended for them, I’m definitely looking forward to seeing this movie.

If you haven’t heard of it yet, go to Fireproofthemovie.com and watch the trailer.  Also check out their companion site, FireproofMyMarriage.com, to find additional marriage resources.

Book Review: “It’s All About Him”

In this guest post, my wife Lori reviews Denise Jackson’s book “It’s All About Him”.

Denise Jackson, wife of country music superstar Alan Jackson, seemed to have it all.  Married to her high-school sweetheart, she had three beautiful daughters and most anything money could buy.  Her world included mansions, jewelry, luxury cars, and expensive clothing.

But despite the appearance of a perfect life, all was not well.  Denise’s marriage to Alan was crumbling, and she felt lost and alone.  Having spent her entire adult life focused and dependent on her husband, what was she to do once he decided to leave?

Marriage Link – MarriageToday.org

The web is full of resources around the subject of marriage. But finding the good ones, the ones that give a Godly, Biblical perspective, are sometimes hard to come by.

As I come across these valuable web sites, I’ll begin sharing their links in order to provide you with more valuable information for your marriage.

The first Christian marriage site I have for you is for my all time favorite marriage ministry, MarriageToday. Through their TV show, articles, and seminars, the work of Jimmy & Karen Evans has been extremely beneficial to my marriage. I’ve learned a lot from them, and continue to do so. They’ve also recently started a blog at MarriageTodayBlog.com.

Check them out…you and your marriage will be glad you did.

Wedding Day Promises

Today we went to a wedding for a couple from our church. It’s been a long time since we’ve been to a wedding and it was the first wedding that our kids have been to. Having recently celebrated our 15th anniversary, most of our friends have long since been married.

The wedding we went to today was very nice. Everyone could tell how much the bride and groom truly adored each other. And the ceremony itself was very deliberately focused on God being a part of the union and that with Him at the lead, the marriage would be strong.

While sitting in the church, watching the couple exchange vows, a few things came to mind.

Your Marriage Can Be Resurrected

It’s Easter…when we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

But before He was resurrected on Sunday, Jesus had to go through Friday of pain and suffering and Saturday of death.

Many husbands and wives are sitting in the middle of their Friday or Saturday when it comes to marriage. There is a lot of pain and suffering or the relationship seems dead.

The Dream Marriage 3: Keeping It

Previously, we’ve talked about renewing your desire to have a great marriage and how to work at doing what God’s asked you to do to move closer to that dream marriage.

Now it’s time to realize that having the dream marriage is not a destination, but a journey. There is never going to come a day where you wake up and say “wow, I’ve arrived at a great marriage, I’m done.”

You’re not done. The great marriage relationship is a journey. It’s a process that needs maintenance to keep from slipping back down into mediocrity.

The Dream Marriage: Desiring It

Admit it…you want a great marriage.

No wife grew up thinking “I can’t wait to get into a miserable marriage.” And no husband got married thinking “I’m looking forward to this marriage becoming a huge weight around my neck.”

But all too often, that’s what the marriage relationship turns into.

Marriage Bible Verse of the Week – Emotion Led?

Letting our emotions lead us is a sure way to get out of the will of God.

We’re so used to doing or saying what we feel that we allow our emotions to control us without a second thought.

In the process of following where our “feelings” lead us, we begin veering away from God’s will. This then leads to many other negative consequences, including hurting those around us like our spouses, kids, friends, and coworkers.
