The Marriage Puzzle

Several years ago we bought one of those 1000 piece puzzles.  It was a painting of the animals being loaded onto the ark, It was HUGE, with lots of pieces.  Well, we all started working, putting them together.  Some days we would put a whole bunch of it together, and...

It's all about the Gospel. As we've grown to realize the fullness of what Christ did for us, we've peeled off the "Christians should be perfect" mask and owned our sin nature. This process has led us to serve one another in grace and joy. It has brought us to a place of delight. In sharing our journey, we desire that our discovery can encourage you to realize the fullness of the Gospel as well, and that it will also help you serve one another in your home!
