Love gets messy.

Financial problems, sickness, aging parents, a chronically unhappy spouse . . . trials will inevitably come that threaten your marriage. No matter how long you’ve been married or how strong your relationship is, sooner or later you are going to have a mess to clean up.

Messy Beautiful Love is about cleaning up messes God’s way, exchanging your ideas for His, and being prepared for both the best and the worst that marriage has to offer.

Messy Beautiful Love is an invitation to obedience. The cynical world says marriages don’t last, but God knows better. Tune out the world and tune in to Him. When you do that, a beautiful marriage is not only possible, it’s inevitable.
~ Darlene Schacht
Darlene blogs at, is the coauthor of Candace Cameron Bure’s New York Time’s best-selling book “Reshaping It All” and the author of Messy Beautiful Love*.

  1. I just happen to stumble across this post this morning. You have NO idea how much I need to be part of this study. I’m very interested to see what this book is all about. Thanks for offering it Courtney. Excited to get started 🙂

  2. I will be joining the book study. Hopefully I will get the book by then. It has been pre-ordered, but as you all know, I live in Belgium and it takes up to 6 months until I get a book.

    Thank you so much for this study guide!

    Many blessings xxx

  3. I would love to join in. Please sign me up. Looking forward to it, This year working on my marriage and family has been my greatest priority. Removing the distractions from life which has kept me from being the best mother and wife God has called me to be. Back to my covenant promises.

  4. I can’t wait to get started on this! I just printed out the study guide and got the kindle edition of the book. God’s timing is so good 🙂

  5. I am the “one” in my neighborhood, group of friends, bible study, book club that hosts and plans things. Sometimes I wish someone would take over and invite me to just be a participant. YAY! I am ordering the book right now.

    See you all on the 3rd of November.

    Miss Edie

  6. Is anyone else having difficulty printing the study guide? Trying to figure out if it’s just my computer. Thanks!

  7. Is there a particular time to be on-line for this? This is new to me, so do we all just ‘discuss’ the book by these replies or what/how? Thanks!

    1. Hi Patricia – I’m so glad you are joining us – we are going to be discussing it in the comment section here – so join us anytime on Monday 🙂

      Lots of Love,

  8. A huge big thanks to both of you, Courtney and Darlene. I appreciate you both so very much! I am praying for you. You both have a sweet and powerful ministry. I feel truly and honestly honored to pray for you two, to stand in the gap and pray that God protects and blesses your hearts, lives, and families.

    Thank you for this marriage study. I have my book and the study guide printed. I long for God to tune my heart and help me be an ever more loving encourager and builder in my marriage.

    Smiles and Blessings!

  9. I’m really looking forward to this study! Marriage is a treasured gift from The Lord. Mine is really good, but I want it better and better all the time!

    Love in His name!

  10. I like the way the author talks about fixing up her little house and making it work. She seems to have a real sense of home which makes her infidelity even more shocking. The way her husband handled the situation reminded me of disciplining my children. Sometimes you just look at them and know there is no more effective punishment than they are giving themselves. Grace is a beautiful gift.

    * One thing I love about my husband is that he is really sweet with babies and animals when none is looking.
