your-marriage-gods-way-author-scott-lapierreYour most important earthly connection is with your spouse, and when you honor the person you married, you’re also honoring God. He created marriage to be one of life’s greatest gifts, and the instruction manual you need for a joyful, lasting union is found in His Word.

For the workbook…

By God’s design, your relationship with your spouse is your most important earthly connection. Your heavenly Father wants you to witness the fullness of His love in your marriage, and He invites you to apply His instructions for building a satisfying, enduring union.

This companion workbook to Your Marriage God’s Way encourages you to dive deeper into your study of this sacred contract between man, woman, and God. You’ll lay the foundation of a marriage that lasts as you…

  • understand the unique roles God has given you and your spouse

I read this book in one setting but I am going to tell you that is not the way to read this book! "Your Marriage God’s Way" by  Scott LaPierre needs to be read and studied.  This book is life changing if you apply it. It is written for both husbands and wife. This is a book to do as a couple but I am recommending it for any one wanting to improve their marriage, even if your spouse won't read it.  The author points out both what husbands and wives are supposed to do for each other  and what each needs from the other spouse. 

I also have the workbook but I have only glanced at it and just started working on it but I am anxious to do the work. The workbook is definitely designed for couples but again I say if only one spouse does the work and apply the lessons taught it is a good thing for your marriage. 

This is a book that I believe I will be reading many times.

This is a book that doesn't try to tell us how to change our spouses but it is written to show us how to change ourselves into what God wants us to be.  If we can improved on how we act and view our marriages , then families and churches and communities and the world will be better and we all can all be winners. No, that statement isn't in the book but it is my own thought. 

I received a complimentary copy of the book and the workbook from the author and Celebrate Lit and these thoughts are my own.

Your Marriage Reflects Your Relationship with Christ

A few years ago, Katie and I faced the biggest crisis of our marriage. I started pastoring Woodland Christian Church when it was small, but within three years the congregation tripled in size. I admit that before I became a pastor, I was unaware of how much work is involved in shepherding a church of even a few hundred people. I had been an Army officer, a supervisor at a distribution center for a major retail chain, and an elementary school teacher. But none of those occupations approached the amount of mental and emotional energy and sheer hard work pastoring entails!

Almost all my waking hours were packed with studying, teaching, counseling, making phone calls, sending emails, attending meetings, addressing administrative responsibilities, and tending to benevolence issues. When I was at home, where I should have been an engaged father and husband, I did not have much left for my family mentally, emotionally, or physically.

Although I was failing as a husband and father, I was able to convince myself I was still pleasing the Lord. I compartmentalized my life by saying, “I am a Christian first. I am a spouse second. I am a parent third. I am an employee fourth.” Instead, I should have said, “I am a Christian spouse. I am a Christian parent. I am a Christian employee.” The danger of seeing ourselves as Christian servants first and spouses second is we can find ourselves believing the lie I bought into at the time: “If I can be a good pastor, I can please God even though I am not the best husband.”

The truth is that I was a poor husband, and I should have recognized that meant I was notpleasing the Lord.
