The Marriage Hall of Fame

Marriage Hall of Fame

For a married couple, is there any goal in life more worthwhile than honoring God and each other in marriage? Everyone knows that a married life is full of tough challenges. But couples can choose to rely on the Lord. This can give them grace needed daily to make marriage all that it was intended to be. The Marriage Hall of Fame was created by Home Encouragement to recognize and celebrate marriages that have not only stood the test of time, but have been a positive influence on many others. These relationships are not at all perfect–far from it! But they are marriage relationships that have remained strong while also being an encouragement to those around them. They are reminders that the sacrifices of marriage are well worth it and that the dividends are great and can impact generations.

We celebrate and especially honor the following couples.
