Marriages that Honor God



Marriages that honor God bring all glory to Him. In the world we live in today, marriage is viewed as highly disposable--almost equivalent to the fast food you had for lunch. In our narcissistic society, the selfish 'me-syndrome' reigns in all its splendorous destruction and sacrificing for our spouses or children seems to be extinct. But is that true? What is God's word calling us to? We strongly believe that a Biblical resurrection of the home and family life is essential to revival in Christianity today. If we have weak homes, we will have weak churches, and a weak nation. If we have no vision, we will perish. God's word must permeate every area of our life--especially the nucleus of the Christian home. We cannot impart to the next generation what we do not possess, therefore it is imperative that we learn what is takes to have a strong marriage and home today.

Join us for our next HomeBuilders meeting this Sunday on May 4th, at 1 p.m. at the Fuentes home to gain fresh, new vision for your homes. We will be discussing the roles of husband as priest, provider and protector and wives as loving and supportive help-meets.

What a wonderful opportunity for good food and fellowship and a chance to find out what the Lord is doing in others lives. Don't forget to bring:

Yourself
Your family
A Dish
A Drink
A Happy Smile

If the weather is good, children are welcome to play outside (or you could bring board games for them, if you'd like). We've also recently bought a trampoline! Oh my, the children will have loads of fun on that! We are looking forward to seeing you there!

Homebuilders is sounds so wonderful! I am a young married woman with two toddlers, and there just seems to be a lack of godly, wiser older women willing to mentor us younger ones, who desperately need it! Recently a friend and I started a blog for young wives and moms with little ones, in the hopes that women who have gone before us will join us in teaching us and guiding us. I will be having interviews with wiser women so that we can learn from them. Would you consider doing an e-mail interview with me? I would love to be a part of homebuilders!

Dear Sarah Mae,

If you live in the area you are more than welcomed to join us! If not,you might want to consider hosting a group like HomeBuilders in your own area. I enjoyed visiting your blog and would be honored to do an email interview with you. I'll email you with my contact information.

Many blessings...

Wondering if you can share what books you use for your homebuilders group. We are not in your area but this is exactly what we need in ours.
Thanks for your time.

Dear Deanna,

We do not use any books--my husband teaches from the Bible on areas the Lord puts on his heart and we go from there. If you are looking for books to learn from I highly suggest Vision Forum. You can find them at www.visionforum.com.

Also you can check out Our Bookstore to see other books we recommend you can find it in the sidebar of this blog.

Hope you find what you are looking for. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask me.

Many blessings...
