    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)

    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!

This podcast is truly liberating!

I love this podcast! Although it is geared to married couples who are both Christians I as a wife who is married to a pre believer get really good information. I wanted to ask if you knew of any podcast or people who have waned the same road as I do... being married to a pre believer?

My fave podcast!

My husband and I discovered Fierce Marriage when we were one month away from our wedding day. We listened to the podcasts on men’s struggle and woman's struggle (scroll way back, they are WORTH the listen). We were both so impressed by the honesty and vulnerability that Selena and Ryan portray. We needed that in our lives. It sounds so cheesy, but we always choose fierce marriage over any other podcast when we are together and have to pause it a million times to talk about it. It sparks such amazing and needed conversations for us.

We also have their 40 prayers for your wife/husband books and I have found them to be honestly prophetic in the topics. Multiple times I have opened up my prayer for the day and it is exactly what we have been working through.

We are just such huge fans of the entire ministry of fierce marriage.
