Mission Statement: Our mission is to provide support to mentoree couples (couples to be mentored) through their inevitable bumpy marital journey, to learn together Godly marital habits, to build a lifelong committed, God-honoring, healthy marriage, and to impact the world for Jesus Christ one marriage at a time.

Strong, healthy marriages that build upon the words of God make strong, healthy families. Healthy families build strong churches, and strong churches build strong communities.

Book Recommendation:

1. The Best Year of Your Marriage: 52 Devotions to Bring You Closer.

Wherever you are on the marriage continuum, may be you’re newly married and the future looks as bright as the morning sun; Maybe you are in the “doldrums", a period of stagnation where things are neither good nor bad; Or maybe you’re doing pretty well and want to maintain that status, there’s something in this book for you. Because marriage was God’s idea, He doesn't  wants our marriages to just survive but thrive!



2. The Married Guy's Guide To Greater Sex. Clifford L. Penner, Ph.D. & Joyce J. Penner, M.N., R.N.

3. Enjoy! The Gift Of Sexual Pleasure For Women. Joyce J. Penner, M.N.,R.N. & Clifford L.Penner, Ph.D.

It is amazing how few husbands and wives actually talk to each other about their sexual feelings, frustrations, and fears. These two books can help couples to grow in their sexual relationship, to increase their understanding, deepen their intimacy, and enhance the pleasure and satisfaction that God intends for husbands and wives to enjoy. Both books can be purchased from Focus On The Family.
