Thinking About Marriage? New Devotions for Singles and Dating Couples
Are you dating and wondering if your relationship is ready for marriage? Or are you single but wondering if marriage is part of God’s plan for you?
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we’ve got two short new devotions dedicated to helping you (and your significant other, if you have one) think through the exciting (and maybe intimidating) topic of marriage! Visit our Devotions to Prepare You for Marriage page to sign up for one or both of them:
- Getting Ready for Marriage: Finances, in-laws, communication, forgiveness, sexual expectations: no topic is off-limits as you and your fiancé get ready to step from engagement into a life-long covenant to each other. Drawn from Getting Ready for Marriage by Jim Burns and Doug Fields. (Read a sample: “Communication, the fastest route to connection” )
- Pursuing Marriage with a Purpose—The Dating Manifesto: Still single, even though you’d rather be married? So is Lisa Anderson, author of The Dating Manifesto. In her humor-filled style, she offers biblical insight and encouragement for singles. (Read a sample: “When should I start thinking about marriage?” )
Both devotionals consist of a short daily reading and run for seven days, so they won’t cut into your busy schedule. They’re perfect for reading on your own, but you can use them as the basis for discussion with a significant other. It’s never too early or too late in a relationship to think about where it’s heading, and how you can cultivate a relationship that honors God!
