Marriage Matters (Part 1)

James 1:19-20

Today we begin our new series for the month of February on our Marriages. Don't worry, if your not married there will be some great content for you as well this month covering ways to help prepare you going into a new marriage or to help in the event you may have been married and divorced, this content can help going forward providing some great spiritual advice.
