Make an Investment in Your Marriage


Virtually every marriage can be better, stronger, healthier, and more satisfying.

And, Scripture makes clear that it’s both good for us and glorifies God when our marriages are flourishing.

That’s why this Sunday, September 23, I encourage you and your spouse to make it a priority to be in worship together that morning and attend our marriage conference that afternoon from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.

You may register now for the conference online here.

Our worship speaker and conference leader will be Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, the author of “Love & Respect:  The Love She Most Desires, The Respect He Desperately Needs.”

This book was published in 2004, and has now sold more than 1 million copies.  My wife, Beverly, and I read it shortly after it came out and benefited greatly from it.

In fact, because I think it is so very readable, biblical, and practical, I have for years typically made it my gift to couples whose wedding I officiate.

So, I am delighted that we will welcome Emerson and Sarah Eggerichs to Ingleside on September 23.  The Eggerichs have been married since 1973, live in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and have three adult children.

Beverly and I plan to be at the marriage conference, and we hope to see you there too!

Your Pastor and Friend,
