"Marriage is a spiritual path because it invites us to love ourselves, and love someone else better - especially when it is most difficult to do. #staymarried: A Couple's Devotional helps all couples live the truth of lifelong love, and in so doing, helps each other become the people God calls forth. Just like your love, this devotional is a living companion you can revisit season after season."

"It might surprise you to learn that the Bible doesn't actually say very much about marriage. There's the bit in Genesis that is then repeated in the New Testament, and then followed by the phrase, 'this is a profound mystery.' Michelle Peterson's reflections are also profound and she does a great job at de-mystifying marriage. Her voice is sincere and winsome and her insights are sure to create meaningful conversation for any couple seeking to become more united."
