The Significant Marriage
Creating a Marriage that Changes Lives ...
Impacting Your Own Generations to Come
and Making a Difference in the World


What does it mean to have a “Significant Marriage?” 
Who decides what makes an action or a person “extraordinary?” 
As a couple you can choose to live a comfortable life or you can choose to seek a life that offers hope, brings change, heals, encourages, empowers, teaches, comforts, and loves extravagantly.

In his book, “Outlive Your Life,” Max Lucado says, “We are created by a great God to do great works. He invites us to outlive our lives, not just in heaven but here on earth.”  Max is convinced, as we have also come to understand in our own marriage, that God uses simple people to do extraordinary things!

It is possible, with the help of the One who calls you, to blend your individual gifts and passions into a common vision for your marriage and it is our desire to help you do so, to help you create The Significant Marriage!®

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,

“plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future.”

Jeremiah 29:11

Josh and Dottie McDowell
"Mary and Dave have taken amazing marriage tools that have stood the test of time, and added their own valuable resources for couples.  We know these principles are effective because they have worked in our family.  Couples will be inspired to pursue God's purpose for their marriage."

"When we first saw the curriculum for TSM, we knew right away that it was gold.  He and I had been to many other marriage conferences, as well as had had marriage teachings for nearly every Sunday for the previous six years, so we have seen a lot; however, there was something distinct about TSM that stood out to us right away—the plan for purpose."
