    Narcissism and Marriage

    Narcissism and Marriage

    Words like vanity, self-love, self-admiration, self-absorption, self-obsession, conceit, self-regard, and egotism all have one thing in common: the self is viewed as the crux of importance. They also describe narcissistic personality disorder.
    Everyone is selfish to a degree, but narcissists are self-focused at an extreme level. In today's episode we discussed narcissism as a personality disorder, explored ways narcissists hurt their spouse, and revealed why, at its root, narcissism is a rejection of the gospel (which is the only cure). We're not psychologists, so this podcast is an overview based on research done by others. We hope it helps you!

    Decision Drivers in Marriage

    Decision Drivers in Marriage

    Decisions, decisions! The average couple makes hundreds of small decisions and many significant ones on a daily basis. The question is, where do our choices come from? As we discussed in this episode, every decision is rooted in some core value, and our core values have to do with our views of wisdom and folly as well as our ability to act on our views. This conversation got a bit heady, but we still had fun with it. We hope it blesses you in some way.

    Serving is Pursuing

    Serving is Pursuing

    Serving is not likely to make it to the top of most people's "things that are sexy about marriage" list. Still, serving one another is one of the most profound (if not THE most profound) ways to love each other in marriage. In today's episode, we discussed three ways Jesus showed us to serve one another when he washed his disciples' feet. We also shared some of what's been going on personally as it's been a particularly emotional season in the Frederick household.
    In this episode we worked through one of the devotions included in our Husband/Wife in Pursuit bundle. You can learn more about that at 31DayPursuit.com.

    Rebuilding Trust After a Betrayal

    Rebuilding Trust After a Betrayal

    Being betrayed by the one you love is one of the worst feelings imaginable. How can a couple find reconciliation and healing after trust is shattered. It's not easy and it requires both spouses to work hard, but there is hope. In today's episode we discussed stories in betrayal in the Bible—namely how we've betrayed God in sin—and what they can show us about finding reconciliation in the wake of betrayed trust. This episode is a bit longer, but the topic is heavy. We hope it helps you.

Love this podcast so much!

I was pointed in the direction of fierce marriage by my best friend. Being “newly” married (just under two years) to my best friend, we understand each other pretty well, but the truths The Fredericks speak about open and honest communication and loving each other for the glory of God have been groundbreaking as far as how to implement them into your life, everyday. I will always be a listener! Thank you!!!
