Are You Looking for a Quick Fix?

If so... This book is not for you. : )

Sacred Marriage is about a covenant with God and spouse. Marriage was designed by God to be an example of his covenant with his people. Is your marriage trying? Are you struggling to keep it together? Are you tired of reading books that suggest quick fixes, "Do-more's", or "Be-more's"? This book is not exactly about those ideals. It is about building your relationship with God. What if God did not create marriage to be your "happily-ever-after"? Instead he created it to bring about holiness and a closer walk with Him.  This author has much to offer to help your marriage. If nothing else... it will begin a change in YOU! And that, my friend, is the best and only place to start.

I can't say this book is a quick, easy read. But it is certainly worth the read if you desire to see marriage in a different light. It is packed full of valuable information. As I get older, I am realizing that achieving "happiness" is a far fetched goal, yet a marriage with the joy is possible if you have the Joy of the Lord.  And that brings satisfaction in knowing that you are following God's command for marriage.
