The Bible s book of Proverbs says whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing (18:22) and author Dave Earley drew many of his 14 Secrets to a Better Marriage from the Bible's beloved wisdom book. From Put God First to Love When It Is Difficult , these principles will help readers build a lasting marriage. Author of the popular 21 Most series, Earley says, Even though I have a degree in counseling and have done my share of marriage counseling, I do not consider myself an expert on marriage. . . . There is only one true expert on marriage God. He has generously shared His knowledge with us in a book that we refer to as the Bible.
