Dr. Paul Chappell | Lancaster Baptist Church | Striving Together Publications

cover2Dr. Paul and Terrie Chappell are the authors of the new book, Are We There Yet? Marriage—a Perfect Journey for Imperfect Couples.Married for over 36 years, the Chappells write that marriage is more like a long journey than a destination.  

In Are We There Yet?,” the Chappells candidly share biblical principles and personal, transparent illustrations that will equip couples to travel down the road of marriage further together. Whether newlyweds or married for decades, husbands and wives will find truth in “Are We There Yet?” to help them clarify their destination, communicate their needs, grow as a couple and even shed some luggage along the way.

With chapter titles such as “It Looked Different in the Picture,” “Paying with Foreign Currency” and “It’s a Two-Lane Highway,” “Are We There Yet?” explores topics such as expectations, needs and communication, as well as the issue of intimacy. In the chapter on intimacy, the Chappells deal with three core values—analogous to values you’d expect to see in a five-star hotel—that are central to strong marriages: purity, passion and love.

Lancaster Baptist Church is a thriving testimony that God is still in the business of changing lives! Words could not describe God’s goodness in this place, and all of the glory belongs to God! The lives changed, the families rescued, and the victories won have all been by God’s amazing grace! To Him be all the glory for His wonderful works at Lancaster Baptist Church!
