Marriage—The Perfect Journey for Imperfect Couples
by Paul Chappell and Terrie Chappell
Most people get married with the assumption that marriage itself is the destination. But somewhere along the way, we discover that it’s more of a journey. Rather than being a dream-destination island of unending bliss, we quickly learn that marriage is more like a long road trip—the kind where yes, we’re anticipating our arrival and creating some memories, but still find ourselves dealing with the realities of a messy car, motion sickness, and an empty gas tank.
Like your favorite travel app, this book brings fresh insight and helpful tips, no matter what part of the journey you’re on. It’s for the engaged couple immersed in planning and focused on wonderful expectations for their dream destination. It’s for the newlyweds embarking on their road trip with high spirits, specialty coffee, and a cooler full of snacks. It’s for the mom and dad driving the minivan and distracted by the unending activity of the kids in the back seat. It’s for the couple struggling with motion sickness from the unexpected winding road of trials. It’s for the husband looking for a gas station before running out of fuel to keep his marriage going and for the wife who is holding on to extra baggage. It’s for the couple who finds their car clean and quiet once again and desires to finish the journey with love and grace.
This book is for every couple on any stage of the marriage journey. If you’ve lost your way...or lost your joy...or just want to get the most out of the journey, the pages of this book will help you clarify your destination, refuel your gas tank, replenish your snack cooler, and wash those bugs off your windshield to reveal a God-given perspective that can change and strengthen your marriage.
