Joyful Marriages


OUR STORY----------For Other Articles:Scroll Down

We've been married for over 39 years and love to tell our amazing story in the form of a message titled "Hedges Around our Hearts." When we speak at couples' events, our message is always filled with practical ways to prevent small problems from becoming big ones. Sometimes, we forget that we are supposed to be friends with our mate so we offer simple steps to help you to fall deeply "in like" with each other!

Our message begins with the story of the death and resurrection of our marriage (in 1980) then we offer six Biblical principles about protecting marriages from external temptations and internal discontent. Our message is also about forgiveness and the possibility of new beginnings for all marriages. We give God the glory for healing our marriage, knowing that He is able to mend broken hearts.

Proverbs 4:23 is our key verse, "Above all else, guard your heart, for it affects everything you do."
