He reminds readers that the marital relationship and the relationship with God are interconnected.

2. "A great marriage is the union of two great forgivers," Warren noted in an interview with The Gospel Herald. He and his wife of 39 years, Kay, shared tips for a successful marriage in the piece.

3. "Never try to talk your spouse out of a feeling. A feeling is neither right nor wrong, it simply a feeling," Warren advised in the same interview.

Children are a focal point in many of Warren's teachings.

4.
"You can't be all that God wants you to be without children. It's not possible. Children teach you how to be unselfish. It's hard to be selfish when you have children who depend upon you," he wrote.

5. "As a parent, it is your job to protect your children's innocence."

6. "The moment you took part in a conception you got a job description; raising your children well is your responsibility. Help your children grow strong mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially."

In one of his daily online devotionals, Warren simplified the idea of family life.

7. "Kids need celebration! That is just a fancy word for fun. Families ought to have fun! The home should be a place to play. This is a major fault in many, many homes where the parents are basically good parents and are watching out for their kids, but they don't have enough fun."
