How To Ensure That Your Christian Marriage Is Built Upon God’s Word
Within this book, I used the analogy of marriage as a dance, with God as the Master Choreographer. God is the original creator and inventor of marriage so He is the one who knows and teaches His children the intricate steps of the magnificent marriage dance. Each chapter of the book covers a particular aspect of married life, explaining what the Bible has to say about that aspect and how it can be applied within Christian marriages today.
The topics start off with the basic step of having a relationship with God. This is the strong foundation on which everything else is built. From there it goes on to incorporating prayer and Bible reading into your marriage. When you make a regular habit of reading God’s word and joining hands together in prayer, you will find that your spiritual intimacy will grow. We then discuss finding the rhythm of effective communication and learning to resolve conflicts. The all important topic of how to handle finances is also tackled, along with a section on intimacy and romance. Being that a marriage between two people who love God and love each other is the ideal setting in which to raise a healthy family, the topic of children could not be overlooked. Household duties and chores, and the challenges of balancing marriage and a career are also topics within this book. And lastly, we cover the joy of blessing others as every Christian is blessed in order to be a blessing to others.
At the end of each chapter there are a few questions for reflection which will help you to process and digest the points that have been discussed. Throughout the book, numerous Bible verses are quoted or referred to and you are encouraged to have your Bible at hand to look up the relevant passages and discover God’s truth for themselves.
Every married couple wants to be happy. As they exchange their vows on their wedding day, their minds and hearts are filled with thoughts, dreams and expectations of a happily-ever-after future. This is good and right, but what few anticipate is that it will require a large amount of perseverance and determination on the part of each spouse. A happy marriage is not going to happen automatically or easily. Right priorities need to be carefully set and meticulously maintained. And both spouses will need to be fully committed. After all, it takes two to tango, and in the context of a Christian marriage, it is a dance for three, as Jesus stretches out His arms, inviting each spouse to take His hand and learn the joyful, ordered steps of the magnificent marriage dance.

From advertisements to mommy blogs to Pinterest, scenes of domestic bliss abound, painting a picture of perfection and expectation nearly impossible to live up to. Why can’t you work a full-time job, stylishly clothe yourself and your children, plan a party for twelve with handmade decorations, keep your house sparkling clean without chemicals, and bake a gourmet meal in the same day? Everyone else is doing it! For many women, housework has become more than chores that need to be done; it is a symbol of identity.
Sheila Wray Gregoire wants to stop that thinking in its tracks and help women back to a life of balance–for their sakes and for their families. She encourages women to shift their focus from housekeeping to relationships and shows them how to foster responsibility and respect in all family members.
The second edition retains the helpful, concrete advice on everyday situations such as strategies for tackling chores and budgets and tips on effective communication, while incorporating the wisdom Sheila has gained through her interaction with thousands of readers of her blog and through her speaking ministry over the past ten years. Through the principles in To Love, Honor, and Vacuum, Gregoire promises readers they can grow and thrive in the midst of their hectic lives-even if their circumstances stay the same.

I will put my trust in Him … Behold I and the children which God has given me – Hebrews 2:13
This book is different from most books on raising children. It is a plea for the parents to truly know and walk with God – for them to love God and His Word. In the correct order, focusing first on the parents, Andrew Murray then urges parents to sincerely and consistently love their children and in all tenderness and gentleness teach them as God also teaches us.
Children are a most precious gift that we receive from God, and they deserve our very best. Our faithful training will not be lost on our children; this is a promise found over and over again in the Scriptures. If our hearts are right towards God and our children, the world’s influence will not impact our children. We can and must exercise faith, so our children and our children’s children will be able to impact the world for Christ and inherit eternal blessings.
A few of the parenting topics covered in this book:
- What sin did to the family and how to redeem that which was lost.
- The distinct and also shared roles of fathers and mothers.
- How and why to teach children manners.
- How to show children the Scriptures in a way that takes root in the heart.
- How to teach with a quiet, gentle spirit, as God teaches us.
- How to intercede effectively in prayer for our children.
