Women in Ministry - March 2005 Issue
In today’s fast-paced world, many ministers live in such a way that unless they make a concerted effort to build their marriages, it simply does not happen. Christian leaders must intentionally engage in activities that will help to build strong marriages. This means consistently working to maintain closeness with your spouse—spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical closeness. Our current issue provides resources unique to women in ministry, designed to assist you in making your marriage even stronger. Not only will this bring you personal satisfaction and enjoyment, but you will be setting a positive example for a society characterized by broken families and relationships.
