Even When the Fairytale Takes an Unexpected Turn, There Is Hope

Marriage isn’t always what we expect, but the beautiful thing is–it can be what God intended. In The Giving Marriage, learn how to discuss the deep ramifications of adultery and how to deal with them, find ways to demonstrate the love of Christ to an unbelieving or spiritually rebellious spouse, discover the joy in serving a suffering spouse, and delve into the lives of scriptural heroes who obeyed God when it wasn’t comfortable or easy. This study contains four sessions, each with four main components:

Tilling the Ground
Planting the Seed
Watering the Hope
Harvesting the Fruit

As you study the cornerstones of a godly marriage–caring, sharing, and forgiving–you will learn that you can find hope again.

“We often hear that the institution of marriage is suffering. But there is good news, too! By submitting their relationships to God and seeking out the right resources, married couples can know what it means to truly thrive. That’s what Focus on the Family’s Marriage Series is all about. Whether you’re in a small group, a mentoring relationship, or you just want to study as a couple, this series can transform your marriage for the better.”–Jim Daly, President, Focus on the Family

“Marriage is an amazing adventure–filled with excitement, joy, and challenges. Focus on the Family’s Marriage Series examines God’s gift of marriage in all of its wonderful dimensions. I consider it a privilege to be involved with this important set of relationship-strengthening resources.”–Dr. Greg Smalley, Vice President, Family Ministries, Focus on the Family
