Welcome to the Marriage Ministry

There are a number of reasons why you may be visiting this website. You may be contemplating marriage and want to better prepare yourself for such a serious and lifelong commitment. You may be using this site as a resource for good information about marriage to discuss with others. You may be having trouble in your marriage and are seeking encouragement, direction, instruction, or consolation. Whatever your motivation for choosing this site, you are welcome, and we sincerely hope that the information provided will be useful to you.

We recognize that both Christians and non-Christians, both those who attend church and those who do not are married and want to experience a meaningful and fulfilling relationship with their spouse. With this in mind, we will attempt on this website to use language and concepts that can be related to by anyone while at the same time acknowledging the source of our insight will come from both secular and biblical sources.

We are not representing ourselves as marriage counselors. We encourage you to access all the information made available to you on this website and to contact us if you feel the need. Our goal is not to fix anyone or their relationships, but we do hope to serve as a reliable resource to help you find your way.

How to use this website

Each of the various resources available on this website can be accessed by clicking on the desired link below.

Minding Your Marriage is a brief message for reflection and discussion that will be posted as a new topic each Monday. The format used will be such that during each day of the week a different activity will be suggested that will reinforce an understanding and application of the message. The weekly message will be formatted so that the page can be printed and kept in a three-ring binder for future reference. A separate lined sheet suitable for recording your thoughts about the weekly message will also be made available for printing and inclusion in the binder.

Resources is a listing of books that cover a wide range of topics concerning both personal growth, spiritual development, and the dynamics of a meaningful marriage. It also provides a listing of other websites related to marriage counseling, life coaching, and personal/spiritual development.

Questions and Comments is an email link directly to Ron and Sandy Joyner, Deacons of the Meaningful Marriage Ministry at the Woodmont Hills Church. Any communications will be held in the strictest of confidence, but be reminded that no attempt will be made to provide any marriage counseling or other therapeutic services.
