About 99.9999999% of marriage happens after the wedding ceremony and honeymoon is over. Let's commit to spend just as much time (if not more!) planning or improving our Christian marriages. That part is going to last a LOT longer - it's our choice. Without God's help or a firm commitment, but with a dangerous dose of selfishness instead, we have the power to make marriage absolutely miserable for everyone involved. OR we could hone in on a far better option: our Christian marriages could be even more beautiful than the perfect color scheme - and much sweeter than the first kiss as Mr. and Mrs.!
Join us as we look at these topics:
*The Power of Three
*The Best Predictor of a Successful Marriage
*The Pitfalls of Modern Romance
*Safeguarding Your Marriage
Plus several extras: lovely inspirational graphics and wallpapers, helpful worksheets, journaling questions, our compilation of Best Practices, and a list of our favorite marriage resources.
(This study is not one of our regular 7-Day Bible study challenges - it will last 2+ weeks and be spread out a bit more.)
Welcome! Our Christian lifestyle blog - www.theruffledmango.com - was launched in the summer of 2015, to fill a niche of speaking the truth in love. We want to encourage women to identify what the Bible really says, and then confidently step into their God-given roles, glorifying Him as we pass through this life. Our site has slowly evolved, with the feedback from our precious readers, to offering much more Bible study materials, such as our monthly scripture writing plans (offered for free on the blog). We also have created several physical products, such as our Faith Planner, scripture writing calendar, greeting cards, and printables (which you can find in our Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheRuffledMango) The four of us also enjoy creating online Bible studies, which are all housed here in our Teachable school: https://the-ruffled-mango-school.teachable.com/cou... We hope to add ebooks and printed workbooks to our offerings in the next year or so. =)
Besides our work with The Ruffled Mango, the four of us are busy with other work also. Kristen manages a local antique & gift shop and co-coordinates a huge tea party fundraiser each spring for student scholarships to a local Christian university. Ashley (a CPA) teaches college level accounting classes, mothers 4 sweet kiddos, and also tends chickens & an orphaned lamb in her spare time. Alyssa is mom to 3 active boys and sells fancy decorated cookies and cakes on the side. Christy is a health science teacher with 5 children and serves in the role as a preacher's wife also. All of us enjoy cooking and baking, along with working in various ministries in our home congregations.
