The Study

In the hidden heart of every woman there is a deep desire for a love relationship—and a marriage. As pleasurable as earthly marriage can be, it is a foretaste of the fulfillment of another love relationship—our union as the Bride of Christ with our Eternal Bridegroom. As God designed it, marriage unites husband and wife in a complementary relationship in which they both flourish to the glory of God. While not all will be joined in marriage in this life, all are invited to enjoy the abundant life Christ offers His Beloved here, now, and for all eternity.

Now condensed to eight chapters, The Cry of the Hidden Heart Abridged addresses some of life’s biggest questions:

  •  Why God created women?
  •  What is God’s ‘big picture’ for marriage?
  •  Why is marriage important?
  •  How does marriage work? (the complementary nature of godly marriage)
  •  How can I share God’s plan with the next generation?

Taste and see that the Lord is good. (Psalm 34:8)
