Sacred Marriage

Saturday, September 25, 2010

This is the book that my husband and I are currently reading through....

Some very dear friends of ours who are an awesome example of a Godly marriage gave it to us as a gift. 

Meet sweet John and Erica. They spent two years in Africa and the Lord has blessed us with an awesome friendship. They have an adorable little boy named Jackson and have a new little blessing on the way. When Luke and I moved to Cincinnati they gave us some of their favorite books, and this was one of them. It is amazing! Every married couple should absolutely read it. I have discovered that marriage has become so worldly and even Christian marriages loose sight on what God's design of marriage is truly supposed to look like. The premise of the book is understanding that marriage is supposed to reveal to us how the love of God works, and it teaches you how to use marriage to make us closer to Him. So often we think of marriage as a tool to just make us happy in life. While it absolutely brings much joy and companionship, we will miss out on so much understanding of the love of God if we do not look at marriage as a design to make us more holy rather than more happy. I will be posting some thoughts from this book in the future, as we are still reading it, but if you have not read this book, please do. I know it will be a blessing to you and your marriage.
