Embracing God's Plan for Marriage
Marriage is one of God's most beautiful gifts and is intended to bless us, fulfill us, and give us a path to sanctity. Understanding what true love entails and how grace works to overcome our wounded human nature is the key to a holy, happy, and passionate marriage. In this six-session Bible study, Mark Hart and his wife, Melanie, help couples understand key Scripture passages that illuminate the truths about married love and the "two becoming one flesh" (see Genesis 2:24).
By undertaking this study, couples will grow in their understanding of sacramental marriage so they can reflect God's plan and glory and become a witness for Christ's sacrificial love for each of us.
Each session contains insightful and challenging reflection and discussion questions as well as an "In the Spotlight" section featuring passages from important Church documents, quotes from the saints, and real-life witnesses.

"Embracing God's Plan for Marriage gives couples the opportunity to reflect on what is most essential in their marriage—and how divine grace can be part of their everyday life together. For both newlyweds and those married for many years, this Bible study is an engaging means of growing in holiness."
