Have you ever been to a wedding and watched as two people vow to give themselves to each other for the rest of their lives? It's a moving, emotional experience right?

This week in "I Love My Church" pastor, Corey Garris, lays out exactly what the bible has to say about the word family & what that means as we live life with those around us.
