Joyful Marriages



We had such fun at Calvary Chapel Beachside's Couples Night Out. The couples' leaders, Dan and Jan, provided a lovely picnic meal. Then each couple was encouraged to find a secluded spot to dine and discuss some of the questions from our book (Avoiding the Greener Grass Syndrome).

We all came back to hear the beautiful worship music and then we spoke candidly about our disasterous marriage and the Lord's healing power. We discussed the six HEDGES that protect our relationships and gave the Biblical references for each. After we spoke, Pastor Mike Harris gave a call for prayer and many couples responded.

It was a wonderful night, rich in God's beauty, through nature and His word.

Here's how the August installment starts:

"Is Your Marriage Malnourished?

In this fast-food era of pizza delivery and speedy drive-through meals, it’s easy to forgo a sit-down "real silverware" dinner. We often sacrifice nutrition for convenience.

Unfortunately, some of us have transferred this fast-food lifestyle to our marriages."

Couples' Ministry

We just returned from a fun trip to Temecula, Ca where we spoke to the couples’ group at Calvary Chapel Bible Fellowship. Pastor Clark Van Wick and his lovely wife Sally were warm and welcoming and so were the other couples. We spoke on the topic of guarding our hearts and planting HEDGES of protection around our marriage.

We told the story of our marriage’s death and resurrection and then gave practical, Biblical ways to protect our hearts from frustrations and temptations. They were a perfect audience because they laughed at our funny stories and cried at the “heavy” ones. We love to speak at couples’ events and we'd be honored if you would consider us for your next banquet, retreat, or regular couples’ Bible study. Please contact us for more info: Contact Ron and Nancy
