When couples say, "I Do," and embark on the life-long journey together in marriage, they are actually beginning their own ministry. At the heart of ministry is the idea of serving others above yourself. You have likely heard of the "Golden Rule." This principle finds its origins in the Bible, specifically Matthew 7:12, which states,
"Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets."
Ministry requires people to give freely of themselves in order that others my benefit from their labor of love. In marriage you have two people both serving one another throughout their lives, each striving to out-give their partner in marriage. The result is generally a happy, well-balanced marriage.
We all understand the "WHY" of having a good marriage, but the difficulty that most couples face in marriage is inadequate knowledge and resources to show them the "HOW" of having a good marriage.
MarriageMinistry.org is the culmination of decades of practical insights, formal training, and good old-fashioned experience wrapped up into one timely and relevant website centered around marriage.
The founders of MarriageMinistry.org, Roy and Sue Milam have dedicated their lives and their own marriage ministry to seeing others benefit from the fruit of their labors. MarriageMinistry.org is replete with insightful and engaging articles on marriage that deliver a wealth of information on how to forge a bountiful marriage relationship with your spouse. Each article is pregnant with wisdom and offers encouragement to the readers. In addition to the invaluable resources on the site, there are also indispensable resources available to help coach married couples in their own marriage ministry. These resources include marriage counseling and marriage retreats.

Marriage Ministry Weekend Retreats
Another facet of marriage ministry comes in the form of our Intensive Marriage Ministry Weekend Retreats. Throughout the year Roy and Sue travel throughout the United States to host retreats where couples from all around the nation gather to experience a "Biblical Marriage Bootcamp" of sorts and learn from professionals the guiding principals that are foundational to positive, healthy, and lasting marriages. These retreats are as exciting and fun as they are impactful and rewarding. One participant of a recent Marriage Ministry Weekend Retreat writes:
“Our marriage was on the rocks for infidelity, and we had allowed our marriage to hit rock bottom due to neglect and lack of respect. We had spent thousands of dollars on therapy and our marriage had still not improved. Out of desperation to not destroy the lives of our 3 precious boys we came to the weekend. We went through a challenging weekend journey that taught us strategies to learn to forgive, to communicate and work on the hard stuff. We left the seminar with the grace of forgiveness. We walked away with a renewed commitment to Christ and our marriage.”
These weekend retreats are making a difference in the lives of thousands of couples who attend. It is no wonder that these retreats are endorsed by marriage expert, nationally syndicated radio personality, and President of Family Life®: Dennis Rainey.
