The beginning of faith in God isn’t simply about finding a destination, rather, discovering the journey that launches out from it. This book will serve as a guide to help equip you for the amazing, challenging, and rewarding journey of following Jesus.
And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught,
and you will overflow with thankfulness.
Colossians 2:6-7 NLT
In this book, you’ll discover a “first step” and a series of “next steps.” These steps are important as the new life discovered in Christ is to be explored, grown, and realized. Some are small steps may seem easier to accomplish while others are larger strides that may require a leap of faith. Don’t allow the degree of difficulty to deter you from any step toward Jesus. All of the steps are important, and will lead you on a healthy path of right standing. Baptism is the first step for us ALL as you’ll discover in the opening chapter. After that, you’ll notice no particular order to the “next steps.”
Welcome to “The Launch.” Let’s get ready for takeoff!

A mosaic is not about one piece. It’s the accumulation of pieces that make the entire depiction. Marriage is a mosaic. Every day, every moment, new pieces come together to help form a greater, more beautiful image.
In Mosaic Marriage, author and pastor David Barringer offers a collection of memoirs and thoughts about marriage and relationships, some of them reprinted from his blog. He shares his ideas about building a strong marriage using personal anecdotes and many Biblical examples to provide a guide for those seeking insight and wisdom about their marital relationship. Each chapter provides a thought for a day and a challenge to work on.
Barringer tells how there is nothing perfect about marriage; it is full of flaws and issues. But when it’s put together in a covenant with God, a beautiful picture comes into focus. Mosaic Marriage serves to assist, encourage, and build up marriages and soon-to-be marriages. It’s the guide to help bring broken pieces into one complete marriage.
