What we, Wladimir (38) and Elyssa (32) found the year leading up to and in our marriage has created so much joy for us. Shockingly, this joy has defied many common sentiments about marriage. We can only credit that joy to one source—God. We feel very blessed with God’s creation of marriage and our journey together as husband and wife. It feels like we are a bit setup by God to champion marriage. We don’t exactly know all the details to that, but we are taking it one step at a time in championing marriage—in our own and others in theirs.
This is why we are inviting you here.
We are so excited that you may join us in this Power of a Praying® Spouse Journey!
