Marriage is Great: a sneak peek at Married Christian Female

I am currently writing the sequel to Single Christian Female (which is on sale this Easter for 99 cents), Married Christian Female. As I finish a chapter, I upload it for followers to read. The first 3 chapters are ready and waiting.

Here’s an excerpt of the latest chapter, just to give you a taste.

Our great marriage, is due to a number of factors. But I believe the number one factor for our great marriage is that from the outset we believed that marriage would be easy. That we would be great together. And so we are.

I know that some marriage books will tell you to work on your marriage. That you have to put effort into your relationship. I don’t know about you, but I am not a fan of hard work. I work hard at my career, the last thing I want to do is come home and have to work hard at my marriage. So I don’t.

Stop seeing marriage as hard work. Jesus said that His yoke is easy and light. See marriage as carefree and enjoyable. I am not telling you to neglect your marriage. Ben and I do not neglect each other. Spend time together, call and text each other often, share your dreams. Don’t do it because you have to, that’s work. Do it because you want to, then it will be easy.

Do I have the perfect marriage? If you mean perfect as in, we never argue, always agree, and have no financial troubles, then no. But I think we have the perfect marriage. Perfect for us. And it is easy. I know that we have only been married for seven years as of writing, but in faith I believe that it will continue to be easy. We have encountered difficult times together, but being married and staying married, was never a challenge.

Perhaps a key to a better marriage is in the way you see it. See your marriage as easy. Fun even. It may be the catalyst that you need.

Proverbs 23:7 says that as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. I guess our marriage is an example of the proverb at work. We think marriage is great, so it is.
