What if your marriage was meant for more than just happily ever after!

It's Time Chase Boldly After God’s Purpose for Your Life Together

"Your marriage is God's, and He desires it to be done HIS WAY and for HIS PURPOSES!"

Aaron & Jennifer Smith, Marriage After God

About The Book

Since the very beginning, God’s design for marriage is for husbands and wives to be ambassadors of holy love to a hurting world. Still, so many couples stop short at happy and wonder why they feel unsatisfied. Rather than “you and me against the world,” God calls each couple to the rich and meaningful mission of “you and me for the world.”

Aaron and Jennifer Smith, popular marriage bloggers at HusbandRevolution.com and UnveiledWife.com, transparently share their journey from a marriage in crisis to a marriage built on Christ’s redemptive love. Through fresh biblical insight and intimate stories of their own struggles and victories, this book will guide you toward a God-centered, ministry-minded, and thriving marriage. You will discover the signature marks of a marriage after God, find principles for building an unshakable marriage foundation, learn how to let God’s story take the lead in your love story, and recognize the tools God has already equipped you with for a missional life together. Filled with helpful illustrations, this thorough and practical book will empower you and your spouse to dream, decide, and do as you step hand-in-hand into God’s ultimate purpose for your marriage.

Your oneness is also meant for witness. God has purposed your remarkable, romantic, and redemptive relationship to be a powerful light to a dark and hurting world. This is your invitation to marriage as God intended – a life-saving, hope-inspiring, and transforming force of God’s love.

"Oneness is one of the greatest ways we show the world the true gospel."

“Marriage After God is not your typical marriage book. Rather than focus on the common symptoms of marriage dysfunction and lack of intimacy, Marriage After God dives into and focuses on the root causes: the need for faith, biblical truth, fellowship, ministry and God-ordained vision. The Smiths take the wise path of urging us to grow a better marriage by focusing first on growing closer to God.”

Christian marriage is meant to be so much more than a mere “hanging on” or “hanging in there” together.  And that’s what I love about Aaron and Jennifer Smith’s book, Marriage After God---how their message calls us back to the Bible and the depth of love God desires for us to enjoy, as well as impact the world around us. Honestly and powerfully written, Marriage After God will inspire you to build the extraordinary marriage He always intended for you.
