Love Never Ends
Growing Together in Marriage and FaithRobert Lauer, Jeanette Lauer • October 2002
"A threefold cord is not quickly broken" (Ecclesiastes 4:12).
A relationship where God and spouses are entwined is as strong and resistant to stresses as a braided cord.
"A stable, meaningful marriage is further strengthened by a shared spiritual journey," write the authors. "There's a reciprocal relationship between marital and spiritual growth. In our counseling, we often hear how joint faith is one of the most important factors in the vitality and stability of marriage."
In Love Never Ends, the Lauers show you how to strengthen both your relationship with God and with your spouse. Their approach is biblical, realistic, anecdotal, and practical.
Each chapter contains a "Face-to-Face" section with ideas for spouses to think about and discuss, followed by a prayer suggestion.
Engaging in the exercises in this book will help you
- learn how to communicate better with your marriage partner
- increase your intimacy
- draw closer to God
