Most people get married with the assumption that marriage itself is the destination. But somewhere along the way, couples discover that it’s more of a journey. Rather than being a dream-destination island of unending bliss, they quickly learn that marriage is more like a long road trip—the kind where yes, they’re anticipating the arrival and creating some memories, but still find that they’re dealing with the realities of a messy car, motion sickness, and an empty gas tank.
This teaching series brings biblical principles, fresh insight, and helpful tips, no matter what part of the journey couples are on. It’s for the engaged couple immersed in planning and focused on wonderful expectations for their dream destination. It’s for the newlyweds embarking on their road trip with high spirits, specialty coffee, and a cooler full of snacks. It’s for the mom and dad driving the minivan and distracted by the unending activity of the kids in the back seat. It’s for the couple struggling with motion sickness from the unexpected winding road of trials. It’s for the husband looking for a gas station before running out of fuel to keep his marriage going and for the wife who is holding on to extra baggage. It’s for the husband and wife who find their car clean and quiet once again and desire to finish the journey with love and grace.
If you teach couples who have lost their way, lost their joy, or just want to get the most out of the journey, this series will help clarify the destination, refuel the gas tank, replenish the snack cooler, and wash those bugs off the windshield to reveal a God-given perspective that can change and strengthen any marriage.
