Looking for a Marriage Devotional?

Here is a link to the NewSpring 21 Day Devotional for Husband and Wives

The purpose of this 21-day devotional is for married couples to grow closer to Jesus and closer together. Some of the devotionals will be simple to apply and some areas will be difficult and heavy. As a church we want to encourage you to make the effort to work through all 21 days with your spouse, answer the questions, and set aside time to talk together about what you read and what God teaches you. There may be days where it is awkward or uncomfortable, but having a healthy marriage takes work and it is worth it. Believe that God can renew your marriage and you can grow closer to your spouse than you have ever been. There is no such thing as a perfect marriage, but if we allow Jesus to work on our hearts and be the center of our union, our marriage can be more than we ever hoped for or imagined.

Why should I get married?

This past Sunday we finished our singles series at NewSpring Chruch entitled “don’t get married until.”  If you are interested in watching the messages from this series you can view them here.

In light of that series, I have had many conversations with people that ask me this question: How do you know when you’ve found the right one?

Here are my thoughts on that question…You should only get married because you know (not think) that God has called you to marry this person. You should get married because you realize that you can never go as far, or accomplish as much alone for God as you can with this person. That is when you know that you’ve found the right one.

So what are some practical ways that you can know?
