We currently have a small group couple’s bible study that meets two Sundays of each month in our home. (contact me if you are interested)
We are currently on “Sacred Marriage”
In this six-session small group Bible study (guide sold separately), Sacred Marriage, writer and speaker Gary Thomas invites you to see how God can use marriage as a discipline and a motivation to reflect more of the character of Jesus.
Your marriage is much more than a union between you and your spouse. It is a spiritual discipline ideally suited to help you know God more fully and intimately. Sacred Marriage shifts the focus from marital enrichment to spiritual enrichment in ways that can help you love your mate more. Whether it is delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God.
Everything about your marriage—from the history you and your spouse create, to the love you share, to the forgiveness you both offer and seek by turn—is filled with the capacity to help you grow in Christ’s character.
- God’s Purpose for Marriage: More Than We Imagine (24:30)
- The Refining Power of Marriage (12:30)
- The God-Centered Spouse (17:30)
- Sacred History (21:00)
- Sexual Saints (23:00)
- Marriage: The Love Laboratory (20:30)

Previous Studies we have done:
Through the eight-session video-based small group bible study (DVD/digital video sold separately), Love & War, John and Stasi Eldredge help you and your spouse take marriage to new levels through developing deeper intimacy and stepping into the great adventure God has waiting for you … together!
With refreshing openness that grabs you from the first words, bestselling authors John and Stasi Eldredge candidly discuss their own marriage and the insights they’ve gained from the challenges they’ve faced. Each of them talks independently about what they’ve learning, giving their guidance a personal immediacy and balance between the male and female perspectives – a unique feature of this study.
Both John and Stasi have discovered that once couples begin moving past the shame and confusion surrounding the undertaking of marriage, they learn to fight for love and happiness – and to step into what God has in store for them.
This Participant Guide is filled with helpful discussion starters, video overviews, a helpful Leader’s Guide and much more.

Your spouse is not your enemy! Learn to view your spouse as your teammate, and grow closer to your spouse through God’s design for marriage. Couples will learn the importance of recognizing their differences, committing to mutual dependability, and learning to trust and to be trusted.
Communication is the number one issue crippling a married couple’s relationship. It has the power to make or break a marriage, and after the strong romantic feelings from dating and the honeymoon fade, it doesn’t take long for communication problems to reveal themselves. Through this six week study you will discover the skills that improve communication with your spouse and strengthen your marriage. With this study guide you and other couples facing the same issues will learn about barriers to strong communication, making your relationship a priority, and encouraging each other through trials. Seek God together as you learn to truly listen and respond to your spouse according to His design.
The Art of Marriage® Connect Series (formerly published as the Home Builders Couples Series®) has been developed to help build marriages according to God’s design. With global distribution of more than 2 million copies in 77 countries, each study focuses on real-life topics, practical application and biblical truth. Whether newlyweds, empty nesters or somewhere in between, connect with other couples–and find help and hope for your marriage.
