COMPLEMENT: SEEING THE BEAUTY OF MARRIAGE THROUGH SCRIPTURE BY AARON & JAMIE IVEY

Does your marriage feel stuck in a rut? Do you feel like you and your spouse are never on the same team? Do you want a flourishing and vibrant marriage that reflects the gospel?

Over 7 sessions, Complement shines a compelling light on the beauty of marriage as God intends it. Through biblical teaching, storytelling, and real-life examples, Jamie and Aaron Ivey dismantle the distorted cultural views of submission, servanthood, and leadership within a marriage and offer a better view of healthy, godly marriage. In this study, participants will walk through the purpose of marriage as the Scripture relates it and tackle topics such as family mission, sex, leadership, fighting, and forgiveness. Because marriage is meant to not only give life and hope to both husband and wife, but also point the world to Christ.

Benefits:

  • Replace cultural lies about love and marriage with biblical insight about what God intends marriage to be.
  • Be challenged to build a marriage that reflects the gospel. 
  • Learn how to embrace God’s mission for your family. 
  • Be reminded that your marriage is worth fighting for.

The Tech-Wise Family by Andy Crouch
Looking for everyday steps for putting technology in its proper place?

Making conscientious choices about technology in our families is more than just using internet filters and determining screen time limits for our children. It's about developing wisdom, character, and courage in the way we use digital media rather than accepting technology's promises of ease, instant gratification, and the world's knowledge at our fingertips. And it's definitely not just about the kids.

Drawing on in-depth original research from the Barna Group, The Tech-Wise Family from author Andy Crouch shows readers that the choices we make about technology have consequences we may never have considered. He takes readers beyond the typical questions of what, where, and when and instead challenges them to answer provocative questions like:

  • Who do we want to be as a family?
  • How does our use of a particular technology move us closer or farther away from that goal?

Anyone who has felt their family relationships suffer or their time slip away amid technology's distractions will find in this book a path forward to reclaiming their real life in a world of devices.
