What if God has purposed your marriage for something so much more than “happily ever after?”
Since the very beginning, God’s design for marriage has been for husbands and wives to be ambassadors of holy love to a hurting world. Still, too many couples stop short at happy and wonder why they feel unsatisfied. Rather than “you and me against the world,” God calls each couple to the rich and meaningful mission of “you and me for the world.”
In Marriage After God, Aaron and Jennifer Smith, popular marriage bloggers at HusbandRevolution.com and UnveiledWife.com, transparently share their own journey of turning a marriage in crisis into a marriage built on Christ’s redemptive love.
With fresh biblical insight and intimate stories of their own struggles and victories, this book will guide you toward a God-centered, ministry-minded, and thriving marriage. Throughout Marriage After God, you’ll learn to:
Discover the signature marks of a marriage after God
Find principles for building an unshakable marriage foundation
Let God’s story take the lead in your love story
Recognize the tools God has already equipped you with for a missional life together
Filled with timeless wisdom, this thorough and practical book will empower you and your spouse to dream, decide, and do as you step hand in hand into God’s ultimate purpose for your marriage.
God has created your remarkable, romantic, and redemptive relationship to be a powerful light to a dark and hurting world. Let Marriage After God be your invitation to marriage as God intended–a life-saving, hope-inspiring, and transforming force of God’s love.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
Gary Thomas, bestselling author of Sacred Marriage.
“Marriage After God is not your typical marriage book. Rather than focus on the common symptoms of marriage dysfunction and lack of intimacy, it dives into and focuses on the root causes: the need for faith, biblical truth, fellowship, ministry, and God-ordained vision. The Smiths take the wise path of urging us to grow a better marriage by focusing first on growing closer to God.”
Jeremy & Audrey Roloff, bestselling authors of A Love Letter Life.
“In these pages Aaron and Jen have fantastically conveyed the purpose of the mission and meaning of marriage. A powerful marriage book that left us both inspired and awed … no doubt this will become a must read for decades to come!”
Jefferson Bethke, bestselling author of Jesus > Religion.
