Linda and I have not been able to have many of those romantic get-a-ways while homeschooling our eight children and involved in busy ministries! Instead, we show how biblical truths are practically worked out in our normal, busy, and often difficult situations. Building a Great Marriage along with its study questions provides what couples need to know to understand and live out those great marriages.

God has seeded those high hopes into our hearts so that marriages would grow, thrive and reflect His glorious ways. Should we not turn to Him and His Word for obtaining those rich, intimate and beautiful marriages, all built on His intricate design? Let’s now turn and together build those great marriages.
