Free 365 Bible Reading Plan
We believe you can’t build a biblical marriage if you haven’t read the Bible. In just four chapters per day, you can finish the Bible in one year. Download it for free here.
A profound read and likely our favorite marriage book. The premise: Happy is good. But holy is better. Your marriage is more than a sacred covenant with another person. It is a spiritual discipline designed to help you know God better, trust him more fully and love him more deeply. What if God’s primary intent for your marriage isn’t to make you happy . . . but holy? Buy on Amazon.
The Meaning of Marriage
A marriage classic that we believe is theologically sound and paints an honest picture of God’s design for marriage. Veronica and I listened to the audiobook in 2016 and have recommended it to many couples since. But on Amazon.
Love & Respect
This book is based on Ephesians 5:33 “Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.” The book makes biblical roles simple—the husband’s role is to love and the wife’s role is to respect. Buy on Amazon.
Marriage after God
Our best friends Aaron and Jennifer Smith have written a book! Through 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. Buy on Amazon.
Shepherding a Child’s Heart
This is probably the greatest parenting book that has ever been written. In our opinion, it is a great book to lay the foundation for God-centered parenting. The instruction is highly practical and heavy in truth. Buy on Amazon.
This is the perfect companion to the book above. Interestingly, the authors of these two books are brothers. Parenting is a more theological and grace-filled approach and compliments his brother’s book which is heavy on biblical truth. Buy on Amazon.
Don’t Make Me Count To Three
A highly practical book for mothers of toddlers. Veronica read this book and immediately implemented its principles into our family. Our favorite tip was a line the author says to her children, “Right away, all the way, with a happy heart.” Buy on Amazon.
Books For Husbands
Wild at Heart
A classic read for all Christian men. Most men are more broken than they even realize. This book helps redeem what manhood is in the eyes of God. Buy on Amazon.
Voddie Baucham is a straight shooter with raw truth. This book helps men understand the gravity of their role in leading their family. It’s practical and also theologically powerful. Buy on Amazon.
Every Man’s Battle
For those struggling with sexual sin or pornography, this book offers a strong theological strategy to overcoming sexual brokenness. While I (Dale) don’t agree with everything in the book, it’s a good read for anyone fighting in this territory. Buy on Amazon.
Books For Wives
100 Days of Blessing Devotional
Mothers and wives, this book is incredible! These devotions will challenge, refresh and fortify you as you fulfill your great task of training the next generation who will determine the destiny of this nation. Buy on Amazon.
Home Management: Plain and Simple
Probably one of Veronica’s favorite books. Managing a busy home is a serious undertaking, with many tasks to face and obstacles to overcome This sensible and straightforward how-to manual is filled with systematic procedures, easy-to-understand organizational advice, with tips and hints for managing a bustling home with greater efficiency–all in a way that honors God and builds family relationships. Buy on Amazon.

Heidi is a family friend and a bold speaker of truth. The mother of seven children speaks deep biblical truths to a broken world. We have enjoyed her shows, guests, and commentary and believe you will too. Listen here.
