Since the books of the Bibles aren’t in order when we do open our Bibles to read we don’t typically focus on a singular story line. Instead we focus our attention on the various lessons we can learn from the different books. But the story of the Bible, the big picture story, is the most and priceless story to ever be recorded.

These three tips can help you navigate your prayers when praying for your spouse while also setting the standard of Christ as foundation for your marriage.
Ready for some honest? In my experience, most of the stumbling blocks we face when pursuing our goals and passions aren’t circumstantial. I used to think if only I knew the right people, if only I had a bigger following, if only I had a bigger budget; as if those things were the factors that would determine whether or not I was going to be successful.
