  • understand the unique roles and responsibilities of husbands and wives
  • recognize and resolve the conflicts you face with a heart of hope and compassion
  • follow God’s worthy command to love and cherish your spouse unconditionally

Scott LaPierre's book, Your Marriage God's Way, begins with an introduction that explains why he wrote this intelligent, helpful and impressive book. LaPierre opens his arguments by urging people to believe God's word rather than him. Because of his passion for marriage and family, as well as everything he has learned as a husband and father, he felt compelled to author the book and its companion workbook. LaPierre's enthusiasm for marriage, family and people shines through throughout the book. He cites the scriptural foundation for his writing about the roles of husbands and wives in an easy-to-understand and absorbable manner. However, he admits that because of our sinful natures, the scriptural roles may be difficult for spouses to follow. LaPierre uses parallels between marriage and scripture-from creation to the New Testament-to illustrate how God envisions marriage. There are instructions for married couples on how to live and love one another, intermingled with examples of God's unfailing, unconditional love for His children and how it pertains to marriage. I appreciated how each spouse's responsibility was broken down within a Biblical framework. I especially like how distinct Biblical terms were clarified and explained in great depth. Pastors, counselors, youth ministers, and Sunday school teachers could use Your Marriage God’s Way to help married and single people alike. I received an ARC e-book of this book from the author. However, my review is voluntary, and all opinions are my own.

Honestly, I felt it an honor and privilege to read Your Marriage God’s Way and work through the workbook with my husband. I have read quite a bit on the topic of relationships and especially the marriage relationship, and I have not seen such insight as Scott LaPierre gave. I could tell without a shadow of a doubt that God led Scott to share these materials with the world!! Although some parts were hard for me to read because they shone a different light than I had seen before regarding my position as a wife, I am continuing to seek God to help me be a better wife and to truly live up to His standards for me in the home. Your Marriage God’s Way inspired me to search even more for what God intends for the marriage relationship and I am encouraged that He truly ordained marriage to be a picture of His unconditional, relentless love for His people. My desire is to share this with the world! Scott, thank you so much for letting God use you in writing this masterpiece! May it bless many more lives than just ours!

What a fantastic, challenging read! My husband and I were convicted time and again by Scott's rightly dividing the word of God. My favorite thing about his writing was that, based on the title of the chapter, we'd expect either the wife or the husbands to receive the majority of the teaching in that chapter, but we were ALWAYS pleasantly surprised to find we were both challenged and convicted and exhorted. No chapter was less useful than another for either of us. This book is a true treasure. I'd wholeheartedly recommend it not only to those about to embark on their incredible marriage journey or those that have just begun, but most certainly to those that have been walking this road for a time. I feel like I've read so many "biblical marriage" books, but compared to this title, they all seem like distracted, muddled, missing the point and the mark. This book takes scripture and compares it to scripture and then applies it to marriage in intensely practical, real life ways. I've already given it away as a gift and intend to over and over again as the occasion arises. I'm pleased and proud to do so. What a great study! Don’t skip the workbook!
