About the Book


Your wedding day is just one day in the life of a couple. But God’s design for marriage is for it to last a lifetime. So how can you know that the person you’re with is the one you can truly build a life with–especially when so few marriages around you work?

In Ready or Knot? Scott offers practical and Christ-centered guidance for couples for all of the days after the wedding day.

Through authentic stories from real couples about the decisions they made (or wish they’d made), Scott asks the hard questions so you can break free from the watered-down Hollywood version of marriage… and build your lives together on the right foundation: the unchanging Word of God.
