We are dedicated to proactively empowering people to have healthy growing marriages. Our marriage strategy includes the Core 4 Habits of a Great Marriage.

1) Have Serious Fun:
Having fun as a couple is not optional; it’s essential. We believe the best way to protect your marriage is to enjoy it regularly.

2) Respect and Love:
Of the few verses God gives to husbands and wives, the directive to respect and love is commanded more than any other. This truth really can set us free when we understand the interplay of respect and love.

3) Love God First:
When Jesus was asked about the greatest commandment, His answer was to love God with all you are and to love others as well as you love yourself. Loving God in your individual life greatly impacts your married life.

4) Practice Your Promise:
Our spouses trusted that we would do what we promised when we said “I do” — to love each other and to stay together no matter what. Knowing and experiencing a lasting commitment is vital to every marriage.

We introduce these Core 4 Habits through larger group experiences (Married People Night Out), making small group materials available, and equipping individual couples through our monthly Married People Ezine and Married People Date Nights.
