Visionary Marriage provides a message to encourage all couples to understand God’s purpose for marriage. Insightful marriage advice is given and meant to draw a couple closer to God and to each other. After years of counseling engaged and married couples, the Rienow’s realized that most Christian couples did not have a biblical mission and purpose for their family. The couples had learned some things about communication, sexuality, and conflict resolution. But they didn’t know WHY God had brought them together! Visionary Marriage will reveal that God does have a plan and a purpose for marriage and family in the Bible. The focus is on the big-picture purpose of marriage, and the goal of being successful once understanding the purpose. Rob and Amy Rienow give encouragement and insight into life-changing action that will impact your marriage no matter where you are in that stage of life. Couples will be inspired to accept the Bible as sufficient to address all issues of life. Topics covered in the book include: the power of purpose, the mission of spiritual transformation, and encouraging faith in each other. Each chapter ends with questions to be used as food for thought or group discussion. The foundational mission of Visionary Marriage is to know God’s purpose for your family and build your life around it.
