What can help marriage succeed?

Marriages are under a lot of pressure. So many are short-lived or never happen in the first place.

Marriage can fight poverty—but how do you promote it?

At the Maclellan Shelter for Families, Gena Roberts Ellis stands in front of about two dozen residents, blending humor with what she views as an urgent mission: helping these families stay intact.

The authority of God’s government
