Strengthening Your Marriage
For better or for worse?
Whichever word describes your marriage, there are ways to make it (even) better. 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. In this book, he has gathered a wealth of biblical insight and practical information on martial roles, communication, finances, sex, child rearing, and family worship. 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.
- God’s Purpose for Marriage

“We did this book as part of our joint devotions… And a “follow up” to the premarital counseling workbook of Mack’s we used before getting married. We’d read as few points/do as many questions as we wanted to each day, which allowed us to have great discussions on topics of oneness through communication, sexual intimacy, financial decisions and child raising. We loved how much scripture was in it and practical advice… Was as valuable as reading Preparing for Marriage God’s Way before marrying has been to us!” — Erin
“We used this book for our premarital counseling sessions and it was great. The book is written in outline form so it’s easy to pick up/put down. It has a lot of real life scenarios that we found helpful and pointed out things in our relationship that we didn’t realize that we needed to work out, such as ties to our family of origin and the way we treat each other on a daily basis. Great for premarital counseling or if you are already married. We skipped the parenting and financial section (we had just taken the Dave Ramsey class). I would recommend.” — Ashleigh
