Helping Solve Marital Problems

Godly marriages are the best marriages.

This is not because of some clever magical maneuvers, but because these couples have been in a greater way influenced by the Creator's pattern and design for them. This is just like our health.

The more we live righteous lives, the stronger, healthier and more joyful lives we will have. It is the same with our marriages! If, however, we ignore His instructions and warnings in His Word, our marital difficulties will increase. These materials focus on strengthening marriages at three different levels by instilling God's life principles found in the Scriptures.
