Live Out a Sacred Marriage

You believe your marriage has eternal purposes. You long for it to reach beyond your home and encourage others. But what does it look like to have a spiritually intentional relationship in the midst of dirty dishes, work deadlines, and car pools?

In Sacred Marriage, Gary Thomas showed us that God designed marriage to make us holy more than to make us happy. Now Thomas gives us the practical tools to craft our marriages into inspiring relationships that breathe spiritual life to others.

Whatever season of marriage you are in, A Lifelong Love gives you the practical help you need to infuse your marriage with a spiritual passion that will not only change you but will change the world around you.

  1. I agree, I desperately need to hear more about the selfish spouse.
    I’ve had 2 major surgeries and have almost went through my savings. He keeps our money separate, bills seperate, etc…
    I have no idea what will happen if my disability and workers comp doesn’t come in time. He has said nothing reassuring me that I don’t need to worrry…. Just to get well.
    Instead he says I better.figure it out or go back to work.
    Right now I can’t walk without a walker and I have a herniated disc in my back from falling at work.
    I had to get an attorney so it’s not going to be overnight!!

    Please give me more on the subject. My prayers are clearly on God’s time, because if it were, it would have been fixed long ago.

  2. I would like more info on The Selfish Spouse… Is there some way I could a print of what you posted on this site!
