"'Sacred Marriage' doesn't tell how to build a better marriage -- it shows how your marriage can help you deepen your relationship with God. From the practice of forgiveness, to the ecstasy of lovingmaking, to the history you and your spouse create together, everything about your marriage is filled with the potential for discovering and revealing Christ's character. Now with discussion questions for couples and small groups, this book may very well alter your marriage profoundly. It will most certainly change your. Because whether it is delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God" --Cover, p. 4

Sacred parenting : how raising children shapes our souls by Gary Thomas ( Book )
3 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Many books have been written about how to parent a child effectively, how to become a better parent, and how effective parenting produces better kids. But Sacred Parenting--the new book by Gary Thomas, author of Sacred Marriage--delves into an entirely different reality: how parenting affects the parent. It explores the spiritual dynamics of parenting, and why caring for children is such an effective discipline in shaping our souls and forming the character of Christ within us. Thomas doesn't tell parents how to handle a chronically sick or rebellious child, but he does help parents find spiritual meaning behind the almost heroic care such children require.Because Sacred Parenting is not a 'how to' book, it openly admits the difficulties, struggles, and failures that often accompany parenting. And it goes on to show how God uses those trying and discouraging times to build up the parents who experience them. Parents of all children will be encouraged by the examples of how other men and women have successfully handled the challenges and occasional defeats of parenting, and will be inspired by stories that reaffirm the spiritual value of being a parent" -- Publisher description
