Marriage is hard work.ListenNow

Do you have the tools to navigate through the rough stuff?

In our conversation with Sheila Wray Gregoire about her book 9 Thoughts That Can Change Your Marriage we discuss answers we get from others that are Pat Answers (the sometimes not-so-helpful sound bites of advice we get) versus thoughts we can have that put our mindset in a healthy place to make our marriage better.

Were our husbands put on this earth to make us happy?

What is the difference between Joy, Contentment, and Happiness and what are their sources?

And yes, we also talk about sex!

After listening, be sure to read Sheila’s guest blog post “Sex is For You, Too!

Nine Thoughts That Can Change Your Marriage: Because a Great Relationship Doesn't Happen by Accident

Is what you believe about marriage getting in the way of a GREAT relationship?

When you’ve put into practice all the usual advice, but your marriage still falls short of the intimacy and joy you want, what then? Are patience and perseverance your only hope for a better relationship?
Author and speaker Sheila Wray Gregoire says, “Absolutely not!” The solution to a happier relationship is not found in being a more patient, more perfect wife, but in taking responsibility for what you can do—and especially for how you think about your marriage. She challenges you to replace pat Christian answers with nine biblical truths that will radically shift your perspective on your husband, your relationship, and your role in God’s design for marriage, including…
·       My Husband Can’t Make Me Mad
·       Being One Is More Important Than Being Right
·       Having Sex Is Not the Same as Making Love
With humor and honesty, Sheila invites you to believe that God wants to bring oneness and intimacy to your marriage—and challenges you to partner with Him in that process by changing the way you think.
