    Smashing Marriage Myths: Our Kids Needs Have To Come First (Part 4) :: [Ep. 131]

    Smashing Marriage Myths: Our Kids Needs Have to Come First (Part 4) :: [Ep. 131]


    Is it possible that there are basic myths and lies that are ruining your life - holding back your marriage or justifying an unhappy or unfulfilled union?  The little things we believe can go a long way toward derailing our success!
    Why do capable Christians fail to break through the barriers of the most common marriage myths to take their marriage to the next level?  If we’re not careful, our lives become dictated by ideas which sound convincing at some level but are really myths! 

    In Part 1, we confronted several common myths: 'marriage will make me happy', 'marriage takes the fun out of the relationship', and 'marriage is becoming an outdated institution'. In Part 2,  we attacked the 'I married the wrong person!' myth, as well as, 'Some marriages are beyond repair'. If you missed these episodes, go take a listen!  In Part 3, we addressed more common myths believed that are tearing marriages apart like: Marriage should be 50/50 and if I marry the right person, I should always feel in love with them.

    This week, we conclude this series by shedding light on the myth: My kids needs have to come first. We will provide counsel and truth from God's Word to help us overcome this subtle myth. Don't miss it!

    Smashing Marriage Myths: Marriage Should Be 50/50 (Part 3) :: [Ep. 130]

    The past several weeks, we have been tackling common Marriage Myths - the  untrue things we’ve been influenced by. We have been exposing the lies that, for many, are guiding them AWAY from the healing their marriage could have and into isolation and division.

    In Part 1, we confronted several common myths: 'marriage will make me happy', 'marriage takes the fun out of the relationship', and 'marriage is becoming an outdated institution'. In Part 2,  we attacked the 'I married the wrong person!' myth, as well as, 'Some marriages are beyond repair'. If you missed these episodes, go take a listen!

    And this week, in Part 3, we are addressing more common myths believed that are tearing marriages apart:
    Marriage should be 50/50, right?!If I marry the right person, I should always feel in love with them, right?Our kids need us so they should come first.Tune in to learn more. And if you have been unknowingly believing them in your own marriage, learn how to overcome!

    Smashing Marriage Myths: I Married the Wrong Person! (Part 2) :: [Ep. 129]

    Smashing Marriage Myths: I Married the Wrong Person! (Part 2) :: [Ep. 129]

    Smashing Marriage Myths: I Married the Wrong Person! (Part 2) :: [Ep. 129]

    In this episode, we’re continuing the conversation about marriage myth’s and how you might be poisoning your marriage and not even knowing it. You’d never drink poison if someone handed you a glass  - but what if it was more pervasive? Thankfully, God has given us a filtration system!

    In this episode, we are going to talk about the lie: I married the wrong person.

    This fear that 'I married the wrong person' can FEEL true when things are caustic or dead. It can feel true when we want to be free from their sin, free from the problems they create. BUT the TRUTH is: the person you are married to is the person God wants you to remain married to, as long as you both shall live.

    Tune in to hear truth from God's Word about this very important topic!

    Smashing Marriage Myths: Marriage Will Make ME Happy/Marriage Takes All the Fun Out of the Relationship (Part 1) :: [Ep. 128]

    Over the next (several) broadcasts, we're going to tackle some easy-to-believe marriage myths (I think most of us have believed one or more of them). It’s NEVER free to believe a lie. These myths cost our marriages deeply if we fall for them. 
    Constant evaluation is vital! I must ask myself (and so should you!) - Is what I am believing about my spouse or my marriage or what I expect from them TRUE? Can I back up what I’m believing with God’s Word? 
    Because if I can’t, then it’s just a TRUTH I’ve invented or picked up from someone else’s “truth” that they’ve invented. Aka, a myth or a lie.
    I tend to buy into what’s convenient, popular, and most of the time - what will get me out of a bind. If it’s not from God’s Word and how He asks us to live our lives, then it’s a trap. And before long, I’m deep down in a pit I can’t remember digging. That’s not a place of freedom. 
    In Part 1 of this series on Marriage Myths, we’re going to look at some distorted illusions that look right at first glance:
    Marriage will make me happy.Marriage takes all the fun out of a relationship.Marriage is becoming an outdated institution. I Married the Wrong Person.I know at least one of these rings a bell with you...And even if none of them do, you have couples in your life who are struggling right now with these questions and coming up with no solid answers. There is truth that will set us free…Tune in!

    Prayer Is A Powerful Tool For Your Marriage :: [Ep. 127]

    Prayer Is A Powerful Tool For Your Marriage :: [Ep. 127]

    Are you consistently praying for your marriage?  You are not alone if you are not. So many of us feel incapable to pray or honestly don’t understand what prayer is for. Prayer is this term we hear - but because I hear it from so many people with clearly different ideals, we realize not all prayer is the same.

    What does it all mean?

    Most christians wish for prayer to be a part of their marriage but don't know how to get there.

    Join me (David) today as I get real about how the relationship of prayer relates to our relationship in marriage. I’ll unpack how we should view prayer as well as, why we have to treat it and our marriage differently.  To push us to have passionate, heartfelt relationships with our God and our spouse.

    Regular, powerful prayer can the best part of your marriage! Tune in!
