In 2009, Maxine Lawrence was given a challenge by her professor to research the subject of marriage-not because Maxine had been successfully married, but because she had experienced another failed marriage. In her quest, she discovered that the parent/child relationship was not the highest relationship, but instead it was marriage. Dr. Lawrence has compiled information to better understand marriage facts, before, during, and beyond, from God's perspective. This book gives a biblical explanation of the origin and purpose of marriage, roles of both husband and wife, and characteristics required for permanent marriage, and how to identify unhealthy individuals such as pedophiles and other abusers. When marriage breaks down and adultery, fornication, or desertion occur and are unrepented of, God has allowed a painful mercy called divorce, which allows for remarriage, but only to Christian believers. With remarriage comes courting/dating and blended families. This book will give you insights and practical tools that can guide you in making Christ-honoring choices. In this book you will discover . . . God's original purpose for marriage Roles of the husband and wife The importance of fathers in children's asset development Serious road blocks; Adultery, fornication, desertion What it means to fight for your marriage What about Cohabitation? Domestic Violence Substance abuse Dealing with guilt and shame Surviving Divorce Biblical Courtship- what is it? Dating and Children How do pedophiles operate? Are you ready of remarriage?

About the Author:

Dr. Maxine Lawrence received a Doctor of Ministry degree from the Bishop A L Hardy Academy of Theology in Seattle, Washington in 2010. Maxine has ministered the Word of God through radio and television to thousands. She has personally counseled and prayed with hundreds of individuals and married couples, directing them to the Word of God and community resources within the body of Christ. Dr. Lawrence has a passion to teach the true meaning of the marriage covenant, that the generations following would receive the foundations for honoring God and reproducing healthy families to become salt and light to the world. Because of her own personal tragedies in marriage, she determined to understand God's biblical blueprint for marriage and developed a resource manual for ministers, married couples, and singles. Maxine resides in Gresham, Oregon, where she enjoys sitting with Jesus, reading the Word of God, writing, teaching, speaking, and praying for others. She is the mother of four adult children and four grandchildren of whom she loves.
