The Intimacy of Marriage
But this intimacy is not simply the joining of two bodies in a sexual experience. It is the joining of two souls in the deepest possible way. Intellectually, emotionally, socially, spiritually and physically we join our lives together. This intimacy grows with each passing day, if we take time to talk and listen; pray together, and seek God's guidance.
The Friendship of Marriage
Life is easier when two hearts and minds are committed to working together to face the challenges of the day. One of the great joys of marriage is helping your spouse accomplish a project that is meaningful to them. We use our skills to help each other. We also give emotional support when one is hurting. Yes, two are better than one.
The Glory of Marriage
Yet, in the pressure of daily life we often get more concerned about paying the bills, mowing the grass, and getting clothes for the children than we do about bringing glory to God. However, these very things, if done "as unto the Lord" do honor God. As you serve your family, you are serving God.
Adapted from The Four Seasons of Marriage by Dr. Gary Chapman.
How to Really Love Your Adult Child: Building a Healthy Relationship in a Changing World by Dr. Gary Chapman and Dr. Ross Campbell
More than 10 years after Parenting Your Adult Child was published, much has changed - including young adults themselves, as well as their parents. Economic upheavals, challenges to traditional values and beliefs, the phenomenon of over-involved "helicopter parenting" - all make relating to grown children more difficult than ever. Yet at the same time, being a parent of an adult child can bring great rewards. This revised and updated version of Dr. Gary Chapman's and Dr. Ross Campbell's message will help today's parents explore how to really love their adult child in today's changing world. The book includes brief sidebars from parents of adult children and adult children themselves with their own stories. An online study guide will also be available.
