Growing Together As a Couple 10 Biblical Essentials for Building a Great Marriage



Growing Together As a Couple 10 Biblical Essentials for Building a Great Marriage by Brian Brodersen, Cheryl Brodersen

In their 30 years of shared ministry and marriage, Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa pastor Brian Brodersen and his wife, speaker and author Cheryl Brodersen, watched many couples struggle to build a lasting, fulfilling relationship. With the desire to understand God's path for their union, the Brodersens' turned to the Bible and learned how to view and experience marriage as an incredible gift from God. Now they share the ten essential E principles they discovered, showing readers how to: Entrust the relationship to God Eliminate unhealthy expectations Encourage one another Enlighten with spiritual truth Energize the relationship Endure by standing together in faith In this biblical and practical resource, newlyweds and longtime married couples will embrace the wholeness of God's plan for them to have the very best human love experience possible.


Growing Together as a Couple is one of the best books on marriage that has come off the press in a long time. As a pastor it's always great to have tools to minister to marriages. Brian and Cheryl's book does exactly that-it ministers to marriages. We have already begun to use it in premarital counseling and are thrilled that we will soon be able to use it in marriage classes. We love that both Brian and Cheryl are real, and share their own marriage with us. Each chapter is biblical and brings a biblical resolve. -Pastor Mike and Terri Rodriguez, Calvary Chapel Corona
