From the Author
Looking back on it, I am still amazed how it all came together. It just seemed to flow so naturally. The thoughts came easily and the common connections with the letter C was amazingly simple. It is the way that I generally outlined my messages over the years and was a natural process for me. I am certain that I was guided in the making of this book. I have no other explanation for how it came together.
My prayer for this book is that it will help people to find their way to first a personal and deeper relationship to Christ, and secondly to a deeper personal relationship with their spouse. C Through Marriage is but one of many excellent resources available for couples, My book is a practical guide in many areas that every couple faces in marriage and a useful guide in helping couples-to-be to better prepare for the life they will soon share with their soon-to-be-spouse.
C Through Marriage is the first of several books I hope to see published on marriage. I have a study guide waiting in the wings along with another book targeted specifically to the already married.
About the Author
I graduated from Bethel College in Mishawaka, IN in 1970. It was there that I met my wife who has been the apple of my eye ever since I first laid my eyes on her. We have been blessed with three wonderful children, a grandchild, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, and the opportunity to minister to numerous foster children over the years.
I have worked mainly in various factories over the years as I pursued my calling of serving in the church. We have been planted in southeast Iowa where most of our ministry has been lived out.
My interests in life have always been my serving the Lord, my family, reading, and sports.
My passions have evolved over the years and are now mainly focused on my writing career and trying to help others through my writings discover a deeper walk with Lord and help in the practical living out of faith in life.
More About the Author
C Through Marriage came into being through many years of pastoral and life experiences. The book first took on a life of its own over 20 years ago when I sought to address the much publicized moral failures of prominent leaders in the church. In the chaper on Chasity, I include the guideliness that I developed then to protect one's self from such failures.
I am a firm believer in order to make sense out of life you have to use much common sense. We need to get back to the basics of what has worked for many, many generations. If is isn't broke, why try to fix it? I strive to return to the basics of what really works in all my writings.

`C trough Marriage' is written in short chapters, each starting with a possible real life scenario and going into what God intended marriage to be and how to go about reaching a Godly marriage. Bible verses are given throughout each chapter, so you'll want to have your bible handy.
While I feel that I have a great marriage, this book made me realize that it could be even better. I caught myself wanting to stop reading so I could start working on making my marriage more of what God intended, but I'm glad I didn't stop...because with each chapter, I learned so much more.
I found this book to be right on the mark. I encourage every married couple, whether you feel your marriage needs help or not, to read this book. This is also the perfect book to have on hand to be given as an engagement gift. If it encourages communication to start before the vows are taken, so many negative issues can be avoided after the vows.

This is a great read for a couple to work through together as a devotional and use it for a time to draw closer to one another.

Stand alone book
Being married does not necessarily mean that we will always live happily ever after. We wish it were so, but life is not like that. Life has its ups and downs. There are many good times, and there are times in which life is not so good. Calamity happens to everybody sooner or later.
This statement is in the first chapter of the book C Through Marriage, by Rev. Jim Hughes. It is quite possibly one of the best and well written paragraphs I have ever read. Everyone goes into marriage thinking it’s going to be hearts and flowers, and as Rev. Hughes points out, life doesn’t work that way.
Each chapter starts with the letter C. Cash, Contentment, Courtship, etc., and at the end of each chapter are points to ponder. In each chapter, you learn something you might not have known, or…known but never acknowledged. The book is a fast read. Rev. Hughes points things out in a simple, easy-to-understand way. Also, each chapter is laced with biblical references, which makes sense since the author is a Pastor.
I really, really liked this book. From both a spiritual and secular point of view, the book just makes sense. Too many times a married couple believes that the honeymoon will last forever, and it just doesn’t. Daily living, money woes, children, different ways of doing things all come into play in a marriage and too easily these days, people will give up and move on to another person. A real marriage, both in mind, body, and soul requires work. Rev. Hughes makes the case that with open, honest communication, prayer, and a spiritual base, any marriage can be helped.
