WELCOME TO YYG
YYG: Your Marriage. Your Family. God’s Design. is a Work of Faith equipping couples [regardless of denomination or where you are in your relationship journey] to Fight the Good Fight for God’s Marriage Covenant.
We believe that when He brought the woman to Adam, God commanded into existence the Marriage Covenant: “…the man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife, and they shall Become One Flesh.” [Genesis 2:24]
We believe that Becoming One Flesh IS God’s Marriage Covenant. Putting God’s Design to work in Your Marriage is THE KEY because only a God-commanded marriage can Become One Flesh.
WHAT IS YYG
YYG is an unabashedly Biblical, Back-to-“In the Beginning” approach to Marriage & Family. It’s available as an easy-to-read booklet [complete with about 90 Scripture quotations] and companion DVD. YYG can be used from reading together as a couple or in small groups to preparing a Marriage & Family sermon series.
Because it’s not a packaged program, YYG can fit your personal or congregation’s needs.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM YYG
If you’re romancing, engaged, or married [happily or struggling], you can feel the joy that comes from working His Design in your relationship. For those who are well-versed in Scripture, you will find that YYG puts you on familiar ground yet makes unexpected connections that spur life change > heart change > word/deed change in Your Marriage & Your Family.
WHO CAN USE YYG
THE SMALL CHURCH.
Over 90% of America’s churches see a weekly attendance of fewer than 500. Many of these pastors work regular jobs and serve their congregation as a Work of Faith. YYG is a resource The Small Church can use as an off-the-shelf study or to jump start a Marriage & Family sermon series.
THE FAITHFUL [outside The Church].
Research tells us that many who leave The Church are on an active, and very personal, faith journey. God’s Word is as powerful from the pulpit as it is in the public square. YYG is rich in Scripture to keep you grounded in your faith as your relationship grows regardless of your denomination or how you practice your faith.
Churches with the resources to Fight the Good Fight for the Marriage Covenant & Family proactively strengthen couples through programs, workshops, and study groups. YYG’s unique Back-to-“In The Beginning” approach makes it an ideal addition to the equipping toolbox.

“I have respect for Arne and his work. His ‘YYG: Your Marriage. Your Family. God’s Design.’ is a sincere approach to discern the path to a successful marriage through the reading, interpretation, and application of Scripture. Throughout, Arne welcomes respect and forbearance, kindness, and caring. Kudos!”

“It has been my privilege to have worked with and observed Arne in action. I have been pleased to see his desire to apply the Word of God to a basic area of God’s Church: Marriage and the Family. While many have addressed the issue over the years, Arne has a real heart to apply Biblical principles and practical wisdom to this critical issue. I recommend that you and your church utilize the tools Arne offers. Your families will thank you for it.”
