A close walk with Christ is so very important. He can give you wisdom through the Bible, other believers, parents, and good Christian books.
You may know Gary Chapman for his book that continues to be a bestseller: The 5 Love Languages. That’s a favorite of mine and is so helpful if you’re already married and need to work on yourself and your marriage.

Gary’s new book is Things I Wish I’d Known Before We Got Married. The podcast hits all the highlights of the book as well as a bonus: encouragement for those who are already married and dealing with issues. Practical, biblical, and at times humorous.
That’s Dr. Gary Chapman.
