Books and Resources for Strengthening your Marriage and Family Life

...guard what has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly and empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called “knowledge”
- 1 Timothy 6:20

As Christians, it is important to be discerning as to who and what we listen to and read so as not to fall into false theology and teaching which can be destructive to our marriage and family life. Though this is obviously not an exhaustive list, the following resources have been reviewed by Pastor John and are listed here to help guide you as you seek supplementary resources to your own reading and study of God's Word.

If there is a teacher or resource that you are considering and would like help discerning if the teaching lines up with scripture, please email
