There are a growing number of books, websites, and resources on the subject of Marriage and Families claiming to be from a Christian or God-honoring perspective. Some align more closely with Grace Church’s Bible-based doctrine, beliefs and practices than others. We have also found that some resources are more helpful than others. As a result we have carefully selected the resources included in these pages. Inclusion in these pages, however, does not mean that we endorse or agree with everything in each resource.
