Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! where the topic of marriage steps to the stage. How do we know when the “time is right”? Nate Stevens has studied Scripture for answers and has written a book on how we can know when God is drawing two people together.
As a missionary kid who grew up in a Christian home and church, Stevens provides a refreshingly different approach to dating and romantic relationships. His own relational misunderstandings and avoidable mistakes prompted the research and discovery for this book. It is his sincere hope that this book will inspire his children and all audiences to fully consider and strategically pursue true compatibility—in all four aspects.
Stevens raises the reader's awareness to the four relational aspects of life: spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical. He explains the importance of fully developing the spirit, mind, soul, and body and then describes how they each affect our relational pursuits. He encourages an interdependent relationship as the healthy alternative to dependence or independence. Also identified are the enduring behaviors involved in a successful and enjoyable marriage. Stevens' goal is to lead the reader to a balanced, abundant life and a rewarding journey toward a compatible, fulfilling, and lifelong marriage.
Nate currently lives near Charlotte, North Carolina, and is an active dad with his two awesome kids, Melissa and Mitchell.
