There are Different Types of Marriages in America, Understanding the Difference Could Save Yours
by Brad Miller

Some writers might start this article by saying, “Christian marriage is under attack,” or “We need to continue fighting for marriage.” I am convinced that both of those ideas, while well-intended, do little to help marriages to be any better. I also believe that understanding what marriage is, specifically what marriage is to you, is the critical piece that has been missing for far too long. Every marriage should have a purpose, but few spouses take the time to think about…

by Brad Miller

Tami and I spend a great deal of time helping others with their marriages. Just as important, if not more so, we spend both the time and energy working out the rough spots and differences in our own marriage too. We all have rough spots, right? Furthermore, we take the extra step required to understand if those same helpful principles we use in our own marriage can apply to the marriages of others as well. Why do we take this extra step? Why would we do this extra work? What follows is…

The Heart of Marriage - It May Be Just What Your Marriage Needs
by Brad Miller

Every couple needs to spend quality time together. We could refer to this as emotional connection, deep bonding, or just staying connected. We all know we need to do it, but few of us are intentional enough to pull it off. Life just seems to pull us down and the quality of our relationships seems to go down with it. Tami and I recently read The Heart of Marriage. This is a collection of stories from dozens of authors (some of our favorites!), which is one of our favorite types of books to read together…
