There are numerous resources available to couples. We have found the following to be especially helpful.
Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas – This book provides an excellent foundation for the purpose and expectations in marriage. It provokes the reader to marriage as an opportunity to grow rather than simply be happy.
Love and Respect by Emerson and Sarah Eggerichs – Available as a book or video series. We have found the series to be helpful with practical application of the biblical admonitions for husbands to love and wives to respect.
What Did You Expect? by Paul Tripp – Sound biblical counsel for couples that were caught off guard by marriage. CrossWalk Ministries periodically offers video session/discussion groups using this material free to the public. Please contact us if interested in attending the six session gathering.
Resolving Everyday Conflict by Peacemaker Ministries – CrossWalk Ministries offers a small group study designed to equip individuals or couples to respond biblically to conflict. These are offered in homes by a trained facilitator.
