A Plea!

I love marriage. I think it is one of the greatest gifts God gave. But I watch hundreds of people I know destroy themselves and the people they once loved by simply being bad at marriage. Did you know you can be good at marriage or bad at it? Did you know there is very little you can do to make your spouse good at marriage but tons you can do to get good at it yourself?

I have known many people who worked hard at their part of marriage, married to a person who was terrible at it and hardly tried at all. Was it tough? Yes. Painful? Yes. But worth it? Absolutely.

We need to quit focusing on our spouses roles and focus on our own.

There are millions of people who could have great marriages today who instead are living in loneliness and pain simply because they did not give themselves to becoming great at marriage. PLEASE, read every book you can, attend every seminar you can, listen to every happily married person you can, get counselling, do whatever it takes, to work hard at being a great spouse.

That might include coming to our marriage conference on February 19 with Dr. Gary Smalley, Chondra Pierce and many more. $40/person $60/couple.

Hope you can make it!
