Marriage Mentors

We learn the duties of our daily job, train for competitions, and study the Bible for spiritual growth, but how many of us are intentional about maturing in our marital relationships? All couples have areas in which they can grow; learning from someone who may have experienced similar life events is a great way to move your relationship to a deeper level.
