Book: Strengthening Your Marriage by Wayne Mack

SYMbyWayneMack You married “for better or worse.” Whichever term describes your marriage today, it can be better tomorrow. That’s because God has designed marriage to be a relationship of deep unity and strength. Despite the challenges that couples face today, marital harmony need not be considered an impossible ideal.  Wayne A. Mack recognizes the challenges before us, and shows us how to meet those challenges with growing success.

Mack’s biblically-based approach to marriage offers practical insights on marital roles, communication, finances, sex, child rearing, family worship, and more. Both as a counseling aid and as a guide for husbands and wives to study together, this book offers true hope and help where couples need it most. Also at Calvary Chapel Fergus Falls we recommend this book and go through it for our Premarital Classes.
