For many reasons, marriage can be difficult and even become exhausting for some. No matter if your marriage is in good shape or not, this program will help you take home some practical ways to begin transforming your marriage into your dream.
My idea for this program is to give the viewers something to take home with them that they can use instantly. I want to give them some practical things to try to help make their marriage better.
Use these notes as a guide as you watch this program.
My thought is that my home should be a haven.. my place of sanctuary. It is a peaceful place where we build each other up and never tear each other down. It's a safe place from the world. There is enough evil out in the world. Often, unhappy people direct their unhappiness onto us "out there" and our home is a place where such actions are not permitted.
Proverbs 31: 10-11, 29 10
"A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. 11 Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. 29 “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all."
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. 3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
Ephesians 5:21-27 21
"Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ." 22"Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord." 23"For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior." 24"Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything." 25"Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26to make her holy, cleansing[a] her by the washing with water through the word," 27"and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless."
"It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."
"He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord."
"...and a quarrelsome wife is like a constant dripping.It is not good for the man to be alone."
"Better to live on a corner of the roof than to share a house with a quarrelsome wife."
"Better to live in a desert than with a quarrelsome and ill-tempered wife."
"A quarrelsome wife is like a constant dripping on a rainy day; restraining her is like restraining the wind or grasping oil with the hand."
