Tell us a little about yourself. I have been the senior pastor of Woodland Christian church since 2010. My wife, Katie, and I grew up together in the small town of McArthur in the mountains of northern California. As of 2021 we have eight children with a ninth on the way.
What was your motivation behind this project? I wrote Your Marriage God's Way because I am passionate about this area of Scripture and life. God designed the family as the primary unit for every other segment in society, including the church. And marriage is the heart of the family. As a marriage disintegrates, the family disintegrates. As families disintegrate, churches disintegrate. As churches disintegrate, society disintegrates. When marriages are strong, however, families are strong. When families are strong, churches can be strong because strong churches are made up of strong families. As a pastor, I have seen many struggling marriages, but I have also seen couples find the solutions to their problems in Scripture. The truth of God's Word has the power to heal and strengthen any marriage.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I believe when couples read this book together it will strengthen their relationships with each other, and most importantly with Christ. Because the marriage relationship is a picture of Christ and His relationship to the church, it is one of the greatest evangelistic tools believers have. Godly marriages have the potential to reveal Christ to an unbelieving world; therefore, I also hope the book helps people become more evangelistic. As a husband I have experienced firsthand the blessings that come from obeying God's Word and the negative consequences that come with disobedience. I hope husbands and wives come to learn what God says about marriage and experience these blessings themselves.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? Your Marriage God's Way is a product of the sermons I preached on marriage over almost a year to my church. I spent 20 to 30 hours studying for each message. The book is the accumulation of hundreds of hours of studying God's word. There's no way I could to spend that much time with the Lord and in the Scriptures without being deeply impacted by my work.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? At the beginning of Your Marriage God's Way I write, First, and of greatest importance, I am not asking you to trust me. Rather, I am inviting you to trust what God says in the Bible. This book is not a collection of my thoughts about marriage. God is the author of marriage. He designed the roles and responsibilities for husbands and wives. He knows what couples need so they can experience healthy, joyful, Christ-centered relationships, and He provided the instructions in His Word. My desire is to present that guide clearly and biblically in Your Marriage God's Way I believe this communicates that the Bible is my greatest influence. I also regularly use commentaries from John MacArthur and Warren Wiersbe. These wonderful godly men have also greatly influenced me.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I poured my heart into Your Marriage God's Way, and I pray it strengthens your marriage and relationship with Christ! If you would like to learn more about me, or I can pray for you in any way, please feel free to reach out to me.
