Maintaining a healthy relationship centered in faith and love for God is the secret to a happy union. These devotions for couples will guide every couple there is, young or old, whether married for a long time or newly-weds, to build a strong and lasting relationship with God at the center.

#1: Walking Together: A Couples Devotional

Book Summary: Mark and Susan were a great Christian couple I thought would be together for ever.  I was shocked when I heard that, after thirty years of marriage, they had decided to go their separate ways.  I asked Mark what happened.  He said; “I really don’t know; we both just realized one day that we had changed.  I didn’t know who she was anymore, and she didn’t know me.  I guess it was just too hard for us to start over.”

Change is inevitable. In fact, if you aren’t growing, you are dying.  If you don’t make the effort to take your partner with you on the journey, you will wake up one day and find that you are in completely different places.  This is especially true of your spiritual life. Walking together is a short five-day couple’s devotional designed to get you and your spouse into the habit of growing together spiritually.  Each day includes some discussion questions to get you and your partner to sharing the way that God is leading and speaking to you today.  My prayer is that both your marriage and spiritual life will be enriched and blessed by this resource.

About the Author

CJ grew up admiring books. His family owned a small bookstore throughout his early childhood, and he would spend weekends flipping through book after book, always sure to read the ones that looked the most interesting. Not much has changed since then, except now some of those interesting books he picks off the shelf were designed by his company!
