Marriage can be challenging at times but we are loving our God and each other through the process. We believe the principles in the bible are still and always will be relevant for every situation in life. The bible teaches and directs us, according to Gods principles, how to cultivate a relationship with our God in heaven and our fellow-man on earth. It is a book on relationships. We have an enemy (satan, the devil) that wants to break the relationship (fellowship) with our God and cause division among the people on earth. He (satan) wants to break down the family. He cannot do so, we have been given the sacrifice of Jesus Christ! He has come to give us the abundant life and life more abundantly. Thank you God for the sacrifice of Jesus!

Our mission is to help keep marriages encouraged, refreshed, and purposeful through a biblical perspective. God is Amazing, Loving, & Faithful. We give everything we have to him. Once we give everything to him that is when the Miracles happen. We have to commit our will and ways to the teaching of his word.

We can have a fun, fulfilling, & faithful marriage. It will not always be sunshine, sand and clear blue water. We will have to DENY our flesh, Pray and OBEY. We have to do all three. Doing one without the other will cause unbalance and open the door for lack. Ephesians 5:22-24  Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.  I put OWN in bold to bring special attention to it. We can not do everything that other marriages do. There are standards that we have in a Christ centered marriage but each family has the ability to have different preferences. My husband my value me submitting in one area while another husband may value his wife submitting in a different area. Learn and know your spouse.Wives your husband is your head like Christ is the head of the church. We have to respect their position in our lives. If we feel that they are not making a right decision we need to pray to the father FIRST, then have a conversation with our spouse about our concerns. Ultimately, we have to allow our husbands to LEAD and make decisions. It is how God created it to be. Remember God created Adam and gave him work and instruction before he created woman, so that he would not be alone. We are the help-meet. We sometimes have to renew our minds in biblical principles and ask God for a divine approach to come to a mutual consensus.

 Husbands: You have even more instruction than the wife, because you are the head and hold great responsibility for the entire family.Ephesians 5:25-30 25 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, 26 that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27 so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be Holy and without blemish.[a] 28 In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, 30 because we are members of his body. God had to remind you to love your wife. When loving your wife you need to know how love is translated to her. One wife may feel loved with her husband suprising her with flowers, while another wife may feel loved when the husband relieves her of some or all of the household chores. Learn your spouse and ask them if you need to. Sometimes we dont know and then this is an opportunity to explore and learn each other. In  1  Corinthians 13:4-7  describes love. 4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogantor rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;[b] it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Husbands are called to wash their wives with the word so that she can be presented without spot or wrinkle. Speak the word over your wives, nourish her and give her instruction lovingly. Treat her as you would your own physical body because she is a part of you. Your wife represents you. 

Lets Pray that God will renew our hearts and minds in his word to walk out the MANDATE of MARRIAGE! WE HAVE TO BE DEDICATED, because the task we have accepted as Married Christians is a representation to the world of Christ and his bride THE CHURCH!
