God is love…but, love isn’t God!

Love might not be what you think it is. In this episode we’ll look at the wonderful, counter-cultural, biblical idea of love. Enjoy, and thanks for listening!

Purposeful Sendoffs (The Home, 4 of 4)

What an opportunity we have, as Christians, to view our days as more than simply coming and going to/from work, activities, church, the store, and wherever else daily life takes you. What if every exit from the home was a strategic send-off of an ambassador out into the world? God has provided opportunities for us to live out the Great Commission uniquely and purposefully within…

What is a “Home”? (The Home, 2 of 4)

What is a home, exactly? In today’s episode we explore how the places and spaces we call home are more than houses. They’re also so much more than “live, laugh, love” signs and pinterest-perfect furnishings. Listen in and be encouraged: your home is a place where profound things happen, and probably more often than you think. Enjoy!

Seizing Missional Moments (The Home, 1 of 4)

Our mission is point couples to Christ and encourage them in the Gospel, but what can be said of the spaces those same couples occupy, namely, the home? In this new series, we’ll be looking closely at the home and the role it can play in the spiritual formation, emotional connection, and missional alignment of you, our lovely listeners. Enjoy!

The 5 Modes of Sex (Sex Talks, 2 of 4)

What if one of you is in the mood and the other isn’t? And what could “modes” have to do with solving your frustrations in that moment? In this episode we elaborate on our previous talks about “the spectrum of sex” by introducing 5 modes of sex. We hope it helps you! Our marriage learning project ~~Gospel Centered Marriage~~ is open for enrollment! It’s a…

Skill #4: Making Sex Better (Back to Basics, 4 of 4)

As we finish out this series on marital basics and skills, we’re discussing the topics of sex and intimacy. The trouble most couples face in this area stems from a misunderstanding of the very nature of their sex life as a couple and the fact that it is, in fact, an area where you’re meant to grow and explore and figure out over your lifetimes…

Skill #2: Teamwork (Back to Basics, 2 of 4)

A constant reminder that floats throughout the Frederick household is “we’re on the same team(!!).” There is no replacement for truly being in unity, advocating for one another, making memories, and valuing one another as equally important parts of the marital team. The best part? Teamwork in marriage is a habit you can cultivate and if you do, it will revolutionize your relationship. We hope…

Heads and Helpers, Part 2 (Identity, 4 of 5)

Today we continue the conversation about biblical roles for husbands (as heads) and wives (as helpers) in Christian marriage. Before you listen to this episode, make sure you’ve listened to last week’s Part 1 release. Then, make sure you listen to this whole episode before jumping to conclusions. We trust that as we talk through the implications of God’s word, it will edify and encourage…

Heads and Helpers, Part 1 (Identity, 3 of 5)

Few topics ruffle feathers like biblical roles, especially when you talk about ideas like headship and submission in marriage. In this episode we began a conversation (that continues into next week’s episode) where we unpacked the what the Bible says about roles in marriage. Next week, we’ll look at the implications for husbands and wives who are seeking to live in full light of what…

Who Are We as “Us”? (Identity, 2 of 5)

You may have heard the biblical idea that “two became one flesh” when they get married. But what does that mean functionally? In this episode we talked through the implications of that statement when it comes to aspects of our individual identities as they are retained (or discarded) in a one-flesh marriage. Thanks for listening, we trust you’ll learn something and we pray it blesses…
