Life began quickly for the Pugh’s, purchasing their first home one year later, along with the arrival of their first child. It was only two years later in 2004 they both entered active ministry.

Today, they have seven beautiful children, a growing ministry, and a successful business. They have a passion for studying and teaching God's Word.

The purpose of this workbook is to challenge couples to embrace a Biblical understanding of the interactions between husbands and wives. Our desire is to encourage couples to cast off secular world-views and understandings of marriage, and firmly grasp what God has designed. By embracing the concepts put forth in this workbook, we believe couples will be better equipped for a long-lasting Christ-centered marriage. When reading through this workbook do not look for partner-application, look for self-application. In other words, look to apply the truths of this text to yourself.
