Marriage God’s Way uses the picture of described in OT Proverbs 24:3,4:

Through skilful and godly wisdom is a house (a life, a home, a family) built, and by understanding it is established (on a sound and good foundation). And by knowledge shall the chambers (of its every area) be filled with all precious and pleasant riches. [OT Proverbs 24:3,4 AMPC]

This set of booklets traces the stages of a man and a woman building their ‘house’ (their marriage, their home, their family) together.

Throughout Marriage God’s Way, we have endeavoured to provide a Biblical basis and perspective for each topic covered. This helps to reduce the influence of culture—whether continental or national or even within a nation. It helps us to look at Marriage God’s Way. (An earlier edition was produced in English, Polish, French and Malayalam.) We have used this material extensively for Marriage Enrichment Retreats and in Bible colleges in UK and other countries. Because of its strong Biblical basis, it has the potential to cross cultural boundaries.

Each of the eight booklets is referred to as a Chapter:

  • Chapter 1. “I have a dream…” — God’s vision and purpose for marriage
  • Chapter 2. Getting Ready to Build — Preparing a firm foundation
  • Chapter 3. Good Foundations — Building to last
  • Chapter 4. Building Together — Growing in understanding each other
  • Chapter 5. Weatherproofing — Preparations for stormy weather
  • Chapter 6. Furnishing the Rooms—Part 1 — Expressing love
  • Chapter 7. Furnishing the Rooms—Part 2 — A three-cord is not easily broken
  • Chapter 8. Our Home—An Embassy of The Kingdom — A little bit of heaven on earth
  • Leader’s Guide. Using the Booklets — for marriage enrichment or marriage preparation

Parenting is the most important task any human being ever undertakes. It’s about caring for and shaping a precious life—and the effect of that carries on into the next few generations. It is loaded with emotions of all sorts, many challenges and rich rewards. It can send us to God in ways few other things can!

There are many good parenting courses available which emphasis techniques and deal with solving practical day-to-day issues—and we all need that. But no course can deal with every issue which we may face. However, if we can find some principles, we will have tools which will help us whatever occurs.

God is THE Father and the Bible shows us how God parents us. He must be the model for us as we parent our child. So we can be sure the Bible is full of parenting principles which we can apply practically with God’s help.

At each stage of this course, we consider:

The Person of God —God our Father
which will lead us to …
Principles of Father God —how God parents us, and how we can parent our children
which will lead us to …
Practicalities —the specific application of the principle

(We were inspired in this approach by Josh McDowell’s book, “Right from Wrong”.)

Parenting God’s Way is a series of 7 booklets plus a “profile” booklet for each child. There is also a Leader’s Guide to using the course.

  • 01. The Big Picture — Blessed to be a blessing
  • 02. An Atmosphere of Love — Live a life of love
  • 03. Good Communication — Encourage one another daily
  • 04. Training for Life — Making the most of every opportunity
  • 05. Growing Relationships — Live in harmony with one another
  • 06. A Parent’s Boundaries — Whoever learns correction is wise
  • 07. Spiritual Life — Leading children to be God’s people
  • 08. A Profile of… — Each individual child
  • 00. Leader’s Guide — Using the booklets

Today, many people are at best confused and certainly ambivalent about marriage. If the church is going to be prophetic to this generation, it needs to find a practical strategy to help others – both within the church and outside of it – to rediscover why God says marriage is so important.

This book presents a brief Biblical basis for marriage, an assessment of current cultural trends and a strategy for practical action. Rather than simply sit and wring our hands in dismay, we can do something!

Marriage Matters is not intended to be a comprehensive manual on marriage – there are plenty of excellent books which do that. Rather it is a prophetic call, full of practical ideas, for raising the esteem of ‘the holy estate of matrimony’ in our society. Whether you are a pastor, leader, youth worker – or just an ‘average Christian’ wanting to help your friend or neighbour – this book shows that you can play a part in turning the tide of decay in your nation.

“The decline of marriage and moral standards is severe and the link between them, to the average person, clear, even if politicians refuse to acknowledge it. The church has both the responsibility and ability to ‘turn the tide’ of decay. I commend this book to you and encourage you to read it and act upon it.”
—Steve Thomas, Team Leader, Salt & Light Ministries International
“Geoff & Mary Norridge are strategists with a passion to see marriage strengthened in society. In this excellent book they show how any of us, (married or single) can make a difference and how together we can turn the tide of marriage breakdown. If every church included ‘Marriage Matters’ as part of their pastoral training, our society could be transformed.”
—Nicky and Sila Lee, Alpha International, authors of The Marriage Course)
“Geoff & Mary Norridge draws on their extensive wisdom and experience, and gives a clear practical strategy, rooted in Scripture for supporting and strengthening marriage. This book is a timely challenge for us all!”
—Katharine Hill,  UK Director, Care for the Family

God has a purpose for every one of us which can be summed up as to be fruitful and to rule (OT Genesis 1:28), i.e. to further God’s Kingdom.

“God…  gave us the ministry of reconciliation:  that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.  We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.” 

(NT 2Corinthians 5:18-21 NIV)

As “Christ’s Ambassadors” , we can consider our home as an “Embassy of The Kingdom of God.”

We all have a home—whether house or apartment, shared or sole occupancy—but how will we use it to his glory? In this booklet, we’re looking at how practically our home can be effective in doing that.

This is a great resource to use in a small group setting.
