    Take Heart, Hope is Yours

    Take Heart, Hope is Yours

    Though this episode is still about marriage, we never anticipated how timely its message of hope would be. In today's episode we encourage listeners to remember that marriage is less about perfection and more about perspective and perseverance. You're both learning, you're both going to make mistakes, and you're both works in progress. God hasn't given up on either of you yet, so neither should you. Take heart, listener. Christ is your hope and he is unshakeable!

    How to Change Your Spouse

    How to Change Your Spouse

    If you could change one thing about your spouse, what would it be? Life would be so much easier if we could just change our spouse, right? The problem is, God never called husbands and wives to change each other... heart change is God's domain alone. So, what can we do when we're living in a relationship where we're unequally yoked and change is needed, but you're powerless to make it happen? Thankfully, we're not without hope.
    In this episode, we talked through the two domains God has commissioned us to work within, and shared three tangible steps you can take today to begin walking with greater faith in your marriage. We hope it blesses you.

    How Do We Begin Walking with God as a Couple?

    How Do We Begin Walking with God as a Couple?

    A listener wrote in with a great question. She mentioned that they know they need to grow in their marriage, they want to experience deeper levels of intimacy, and they know they need to center their home on Christ... but then she asked, where do we start? "Do we just pick up our Bible and read?" In this episode, we talked about three big areas to consider as you, as a couple, learn to be disciples of Christ.

Soooo Good!

Ryan and Selena are so so transparent, real, relevant, and grounded in God’s truth and grace. It’s so refreshing to hear this perspective. Like most marriages, mine goes through cycles and ups and downs. This podcast has helped pull my marriage out of some dark places and encouraged us to run the race well. Thank you for being so real in the awkward and difficult places in marriage.

13 years married AND will stay that way!

My husband and I went through a season of hurt and mistrust. The Fierce Marriage podcast was our first step in the right direction! I was VERY reluctant about listening to this, but my husband pled with me. Once I submitted and started to listen, it changed and softened my heart and reminded me of the importance of the covenant of marriage, that I did love my husband, and help me form good habits!! ❤️

Must listen and apply!

I don’t even know where to start. This podcast is so rich in scripture-based truths and filled with tangible applications to marriage. No matter what season of life your marriage is in, these topics will be able to speak to any marriage. Ryan and Selena do an amazing job prompting thoughts and leading the listener to challenges/homework in order to do something with the information shared. I have always loved that they make sure the listeners do not look to them to be discerners, but rather turn to Jesus to seek and challenge the truth. Their husband and wife point of views are powerful as they talk through relevant and common themes all marriages walk through while holding it up to the light. They are honest — they don’t hide what the Bible says even if the topic is hard to speak on during our modern time. They are real, they speak to each other and about each other with respect and love, they are authentic and always putting God at the center of conversation. I appreciate that each episode is planned with talking points and takeaways, it’s not a rambling podcast like so many out there. They admit their faults, failures, times of struggles, joys and how they approach marriage. I am buying their books and will be a patreon because I believe this world needs more fierce and relentless marriages!
