“Back to the Garden” follows a workbook format, guiding couples along through various prayers meant to bring couples closer to God and each other.

Jan Mitchell, a retired social worker, and her husband, Wayne Mitchell, who works in the field of social psychology, researched and wrote a manual for Christian married couples wanting to pray intimately with and for each other. The Mitchells tested the material with other couples, who after growing closer to God and each other, encouraged them to get their book published.

Jan and Wayne Mitchell know the rewards of praying together in their own marriage. They now hope to help others experience a deeper marriage relationship through their new book “Back to the Garden: Growing in Spiritual Intimacy through Prayer with Your Spouse” (published by WestBow Press).

“Back to the Garden” follows a workbook format, guiding couples along through various prayers meant to bring couples closer to God and each other. By praying together, Jan and Wayne Mitchell are confident couples can experience the closeness God intends for them and unlock happiness akin to that of Adam and Eve.

An excerpt from “Back to the Garden”:

“In Eden, that birthplace of marriage, God created us for physical, emotional, and spiritual intimacy, and created marriage as the most intimate of all human relationships. How is it that physical intimacy can seem relatively easy while spiritual and even emotional intimacy seem so hard? How can we get back to God’s garden, where we join with our mates, communing with God in His original design for intimacy with Him?”
