Wake up. Work. Run errands. Cook dinner. Watch tv. Sprinkle in some kids. Rinse. Repeat.
Isn’t there more to marriage than this? Consider:
What if we created space for a community of couples who want to remind ourselves that our marriages need nurturing on a daily basis, not just on the occasional date night?
A space where we could figure out what it looks like to reflect Christ more fully through the covenants we made with our spouses?
A space where, through sharing our ideas and stories, we are reminded of what it looks like to spend as much time growing our marriages as we do growing our families?
And what if it were a place where we could cultivate community through the power of geography and testimony from our neighbors in our own backyard of Texas and Louisiana?
Not a place of marital rock stars who will tell us the “10 secrets we need to follow to have a happier, more fulfilling marriage” because we know there’s no one-size-fits-all in life. And because, honestly, we’re all exhausted from this comparison culture we live in anyway. Goodness knows we don’t need another site on the internet to make us feel like we aren’t measuring up.
So we created MarriageRoots, a space where our lives look different, yet the same, and where there’s much we can learn from each other. Like our sister site, SingleRoots, there’s no organization or denomination behind MarriageRoots, which is why sometimes you might find that you don’t necessarily agree with everything that’s written. And, that’s okay. Iron sharpening iron and all that stuff.
