Real Marriage Small Group Bible Study by Mark and Grace Driscoll. Real Marriage Small Group Bible Study by Mark and Grace Driscoll.
You planned for the first day of your marriage... Are you planning for the last?
While a wonderful wedding day is important, it's the last day of marriage that really counts. Will the last day of your marriage come prematurely through divorce? Will it be filled with regrets as you sit at the funeral of your spouse? Or, by God's grace, will the last day be a day to rejoice in the life you lived together?
Pastor Mark Driscoll and his wife, Grace, want you to finish well on the last day. Through their book Real Marriage and this eleven-week, DVD-based study, they share practical help and hope with people just like them—who entered marriage a complete mess—or who are planning to be married someday and want to avoid some sticky pitfalls in the future.
The Real Marriage DVD-Based Study Kit is uniquely designed for groups of all sizes, and for those married or considering marriage. Each DVD session features Mark and Grace sharing not only the struggles and successes in their own marriage, but also important lessons they have taken from their experience counseling countless couples. Together they tackle the tough issues such as friendship with your spouse, pornography and sexual assault, submission and respect, and sexual intimacy in marriage. Each session in the Participant's Guide provides engaging group study questions and essential homework for husbands, wives, and singles alike, with the goal of experiencing the grace of Christ.
God desires for your marriage to be full of joy and happiness as it glorifies His Son. Jesus makes such marriage possible through His death and resurrection.
