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…

Bringings Others In (The Home, 3 of 4)

Is your home a place where others see and experience Christ? What does that even mean…? In this episode, we explored three questions: How is Jesus our model for hospitality? Is your home a place that welcomes those who need Christ? And, is your home a place where ministry within the body of Christ happens? We hope this episode blesses you and others by way…

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!

Protecting the Purity of Your Sex Life (Sex Talks, 4 of 4)

Every treasure needs protecting and your sex life as a married couple is no exception! We’ve spent the last four weeks talking in depth about why sex is a blessing, how to enjoy it more fully, and pitfalls to avoid, but how do we intentionally protect our sex life? What are we protecting it from? What tactics can be used to be effective in protecting…

The 7 Reasons for Sex (Sex Talks, 1 of 4)

Sex talks! This episode begins our series that’s all about sex. Today we talked about the 7 (Biblical) Reasons for Sex in order to set the stage for more granular—and perhaps tougher—talks in coming weeks. We hope that as you listen, we’re able to put words to feelings you’ve felt and give you tools to begin building a healthier, more Christ-centered sex life in your…

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…

Two Individuals— Complete in Christ— Making Each Other Better

Remember the movie Jerry Maguire with Tom Cruise and Renee Zellweger? The line that got the most attention and was probably repeated most often was, “You complete me.”  It’s hard for me to even type that line without rolling my eyes.  While that might be a sweet line for a sappy country song, it reflects a deeply flawed approach to relationships. No human being “completes” us—…

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…
