“It was then that an unmistakable sensation came over me, as if God were holding me in a 360 degree embrace and saying, “NOW I can love you!” Fresh tears began to flow as I sat there soaking in a love I had never anticipated could ever flow from God to me. . . What followed led to the lessons, discoveries and revelations found in this series!”
“Becoming the Bride of Christ: A Personal Journey” chronicles Marilynn’s personal journey as she learns to live with God as unseen Husband and Father in the home. It’s about learning to appropriate many Scriptural concepts that have been overly spiritualized, and bringing them down to where life is lived every day.
This series can be read as an account of the lessons God’s actively teaching her, or it can be engaged in as a personal or group Bible study. There is quite a bit of Scripture in every chapter, as well as questions to help a person appropriate these lessons into their own life.
One of Marilynn’s goals is to share a story that men as well as women can read and glean from. Too often presentations on the Bride of Christ have been geared toward women when Scripture says the Church, who is referred to as the Bride of Christ, is made up of men and women. She writes from a women’s perspective, but desires that men will be able to gather helpful insight, not just women. After all, everyone is called to live out the commands of Christ in everyday life.
