There are countless marriage books telling couples how to be married - but where are the ones teaching them how to seek and serve God together? Clint and Penny Bragg believe that, just as every individual has a calling from God, every marriage has a specific mission. In Your Marriage, God's Mission, the Braggs demonstrate how to discover that mission by discovering more of Him.
In this weekly guide for couples, the authors help couples begin a spiritual journey over an extended period of time. Readers will learn to engage together by writing a joint marriage mission statement. They'll examine the seven sectors of marriage, learn to safeguard their relationship from division, and awaken to the need for humility and servant leadership in all facets of their marriage. The Braggs help readers to implement innovative ideas to deepen the intimacy in their relationship and to recognize how God's mission unfolds over time.
Informal and practical, with stories from hard-won experience and links to videos of the authors and other couples teaching the content, this book is a fresh look at how couples can learn to intentionally seek God and encounter Him together.

BillR5 Stars Out Of 5Taking your marriage to the next levelOctober 31, 2017BillRQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A strong, healthy marriage doesn't happen by accident. The divorce rate in secular society is currently running around 50% while those espousing strong Christian beliefs are about 35% according to one study I read. As a result most kids growing up through the last couple decades have not had parents who modeled what it means to be in a good marriage let alone a good Christian marriage.
Clint & Penny Bragg have written and produced a number of very helpful books, articles and videos to help encourage strong Christ centered marriages. Having gone through the pitfalls of their own divorce, God miraculously restored their marriage and, as a result, they dedicated their lives to being marriage missionaries, They have shared their testimony and tools with couples and individuals across the country through annual mission trips.
Further, the Lord has taken their experiences and gifts to craft this exceptional book. Clint incorporates his training from serving in the army into the book by comparing the training and mission goal setting he learned there and showing how couples can use these same tools with a Biblical foundation to first build a strong marriage. Penny brings a rich devotional life into this book to encourage couples in developing their personal as well as corporate prayer life and Bible study. As former educators, they have developed a great teaching tool to help us discover all that God wants us to be as Christian couples.
Building a strong Christ centered marriage is only the beginning phase of this book. What Clint and Penny capture here is the importance of developing a mission strategy of using our marriages to serve others. James 2:17 tells us that faith without works is dead. Through their own testimony and video links of other couples who have sought how to use their marriages to minster to others, "Your Marriage, God's Mission" provides the framework to discover and implement the mission God has in store for those seeking to serve Him.
The book also deals with the many challenges couples encounter in their desire to be Christ's servants. They deal with the spiritual, physical, relational, and emotional attacks couples encounter, noting that it is Satan's mission to destroy that which seeks to destroy him. They stress the importance a prayer-filled, devotional life lived out individually and corporately as a means to be prepared for these inevitable battles.
If you are looking for a resource to help you build a Christ centered as well as mission centered marriage, this is the book for you.
