    Laugh More!

    Laughing is one of the best ways to break your marriage out of a funk. Could it be that laughter is a gift and a grace of God designed specifically to lift our hearts and clear the air in our relationships? In this week's episode we answered three questions about laughter and talked through various examples in Scripture where laughter, playfulness, and childlike faith.

    Expectations are Everything

    Expectations are Everything

    Expectations are constantly at work in every marriage. The question is whether or not we're aware of them and in agreement on what they should be. In this episode we posed dozens of questions for listener consideration about expectations in sex, money, communication, in-laws, hobbies, divisions of chores/labor, church, and more.
    While this episode will be particularly helpful for our nearly- and newlywed listeners, couples of all stages of marriage are sure to learn something about themselves. We hope it blesses you!

    A Truer, Better, More Exciting Normal (Matt and Lisa Jacobson)

    A Truer, Better, More Exciting Normal (Matt and Lisa Jacobson)

    The Jacobsons are a gift and a blessing. In this episode we talked about how God's view for marriage and family is so much better than our own or the world's. We specifically covered when to have kids (they had 8, and late!), the adventure of marriage God's way, porn & purity, how to prioritize your marriage over kids, and so much more. This interview is one of our favorites, and we're confident you will be blessed by the Jacobsons!

    Are Your Hearts Hard or Soft?

    Are Your Hearts Hard or Soft?

    Soft hearts are necessary for a healthy, thriving, happy marriage. But our tendency is not to remain soft toward each other. Bad days happen, tiredness, sin, crisis, arguments, and more can contribute to each of the three indicators of whether or not your hearts are soft toward one another. We also discussed four efforts you can employ today to help soften your hearts if you feel them hardening. We hope it blesses you!

Gospel Sustenance for Needy Marriages

I have been listening to this podcast for over a year and can’t tell you the amount of times I have laughed my heart out, swallowed truth bombs, been challenged to reprioritize, convicted of sin - in short, been encouraged, humbled and equipped to fiercely love my man by the episodes I’ve engaged with. Ryan and Selena, you bring gospel hope to needy homes. I feel like you have walked with me from afar by faithfully giving grace and bringing light to very tough issues we have faced in our six years of marriage. I am currently sitting down and writing notes on your “10 Ways to De-Escalate Big Fights”. With my husband just recently laid off due to the current pandemic, me homeschooling our three beautiful daughters - keeping home and guarding hearts together is FAR from easy, and the opportunities for contention come fast and thick. I wait for your podcast to come out every Tuesday and am so grateful for such an amazing resource in my life. Thank you, so much, for just letting the transparency of your lives and the sufficiency of the gospel fuel each episode. Staying fierce!

Awesome marriage resource!

I appreciate Ryan and Selena’s authenticity as they tackle the very real issues we face in marriage. They always take everything back to the gospel. I am encouraged and challenged over and over again. If you’re looking for practical, biblical wisdom in your marriage, subscribe to this podcast. And be prepared to laugh with this very down to earth, relatable couple. Thank you Ryan and Selena for your ministry! God is using you in big ways!
