Christian Marriage

A Christian marriage was designed to be a lifelong covenant relationship where a man and a woman grow together through every season by keeping God at the center of their lives.

The culture sees marriage so radically different from what God designed, however. So different in fact, that in order to fulfill that design, we need help.

Hope Joy In Christ is a safe space to find Biblical marriage principles to help us reach the goal of a joy-filled, hopeful relationship that lasts until “death do us part!”

Christian Marriage Advice

We long to have a successful marriage. Yes? But when things are not going well, we don’t always know where to turn.

Can we ask a Christian friend for advice? Will they judge us? Will they give us Christian marriage advice or secular marriage advice?

Maybe we could pick up some marriage Bible studies and devotions? But which ones will be Biblical?

How about godly marriage books? But, which ones will be written so that we can understand and apply them?

That is where I was so many years ago when God began prompting me to just open the Bible and search out what HE had to say about marriage.

Now it is my desire to help you see God’s purpose and plan for marriage in the Bible and choose hope and joy in every season.

Testimonies to Inspire You:

Better than any Christian marriage counseling I’ve experienced is the power of real stories.

I don’t really want to think about images of a perfect marriage that some authors might push in their marriage Bible study pdf! I want real.

Spiritual Growth Is Key

Whether you are trying to fix marital problems or get ahead of the next storm by intentionally investing in your marriage you need to mature in faith. Spiritual growth is key to a happy Christian marriage.

In fact, it is so important that we grow in faith that I focus more than half our space on digging deeply into the Word in general. LOL, it has actually created two separate communities at Hope Joy In Christ.

  1. Those needing help with marriage.
  2. Many just want to grow in faith.

Check out this page to help you navigate the topic of spiritual growth on the site.

Biblical Marriage Principles

Biblical Advice for Marriage Problems

More than likely, if you found Hope Joy In Christ, you are having some marriage problems. You may even have seen a Christian marriage counselor and started looking for more practical, hands-on ways to address the struggles.

Some of the most common issues people search here are:

Sexuality in A Christian Marriage

A bit off the beaten path of Christian marriage traditions I want to share some other struggles many wives are working through.

Sexuality in Christian marriage is under attack just as sexuality everywhere is under attack. So let’s talk about lust, pornography, and infidelity!

So often we want Christian marriage rules to fix all the problems… but more often than not, what helps me is hearing other people’s stories. That’s what I hope you see here.

You are not alone in this.

We are in this together!
