Writing Christmas Letters

Tips for writing your family’s Christmas letter.

Renewing the Adventure

It’s never too late to renew the thrill and wonder of marriage. You can find that loving each other is the great adventure you’d hoped for. Revisit these simple steps to help your relationship thrive.

Getting to Know You

Any couple thinking about remarriage should make time to know each other better, to learn how compatible they are and to find ways to make their second marriage a success.

Serving Together as a Couple

When couples choose to unselfishly serve others together, they experience peace, contentment and a deeper bond that strengthens their marriage.


Serving Together Through Your Local Church

Through small acts of service, we grow closer as a couple, get to know our church family better and enjoy being used by God to touch others’ lives.

Focus on the Family

Serving Together to Support Missionaries

While foreign missionaries are busy witnessing around the globe, they need to know that there’s a team back home supporting, encouraging and praying for them, even if they are out of sight.

Love and Respect: A Royal Marriage

Serving Together in Your Neighborhood

As we pondered Jesus’ command in Acts 1:8, we’ve come to realize that our “Judea” is essentially those living nearby. We began reaching out by simply loving our neighbors.
