There is one word that can bring hope, light and life into any marriage: Cherish.

Most marriages survive by gritting teeth and holding on. But marriages can and will not only survive but thrive when husbands and wives learn to cherish one another.

From Cherish, by Gary Thomas

Millions of couples getting married have pledged to "love and to cherish, until death do us part." Most of us understand and get the love part... but what does it mean to cherish our spouse? Why do we say it once at the wedding and then rarely even mention it again?

If you find yourself going through the motions in your marriage, in Cherish, Gary Thomas will show you real ways to reverse the pattern.

  • Go beyond serving and showcase your spouse
  • Erase contempt and honor your spouse
  • Stop comparing and focus on the unique traits in your spouse
  • Let go of hurts and forgive your spouse
  • Don't stop trying. The more you cherish your spouse, the more you will cherish your spouse.

Even if your marriage is marred by neglect and disrespect, cherishing can breathe into it light, hope, and new life.

The Cherish Study Guide includes video discussion questions, Bible exploration, and personal study and reflection materials for in-between sessions.

Sessions include:

  1. To Love and to Cherish
  2. Your Honor
  3. Taking Your Marriage to the Next Level
  4. Cherishing Your Unique Spouse
  5. This Is How Your Spouse Stumbles
  6. Keep on Cherishing
