‘Husbands, Love Your Wives,’ and Other Simple Advice for Lasting Relationships
The problems experienced by couples today date all the way back to The Fall (Genesis 3), Pastor Scott LaPierre explained in a recent interview. And in his new book, Your Marriage God’s Way addresses relationship roles and lessons drawn directly from scripture.
“There are ways that men and women are fundamentally different, and God expects fundamentally different things from husbands versus wives and fathers versus mothers,” LaPierre said. “If we’re going to have the fullest, most joyful relationships we can, it is to walk in what God has said.”
In Your Marriage God’s Way, LaPierre carefully examines the principles for building a strong, biblical marriage — one in which your relationship with Christ brings guidance and blessing into your relationship with your spouse.“God is the author of marriage. He designed the roles and responsibilities for husbands and wives,” LaPierre wrote in his book. “He knows what couples need so they can experience healthy, joyful, Christ-centered relationships, and He provided the principles in the Bible.”
LaPierre gives readers the tools to:
– Understand the unique roles and responsibilities of husbands and wives – Recognize and resolve conflicts with a heart of hope and compassion – Follow God’s worthy command to love and cherish your spouse unconditionally
A companion workbook is also available (LaPierre’s Your Marriage God’s Way Workbook) to help couples apply biblical principles to their own marriage.
The workbook aims to help couples:
– Understand the unique roles God has given each person
– Identify ways to better help, encourage, and support each other
– Make serving God the focal point of the marriage “Let’s journey together, with the Bible as our guide, to experience the blessings of a Christ-centered relationship,” LaPierre writes. “Whether you’re at the beginning of your journey or you’ve been on the road together for years, Your Marriage God’s Way will provide the helpful and encouraging insights you need to experience marriage as God intends it.”
