“Mawwiage. Mawwiage is what bwings us togevah today.” (and only you diehard “Princess Bride” fans are grinning right now). For the rest of you. . . a glimpse into our wedding reception, 18 years ago:
Yep, be jealous of those moves. We partied like it was 1999. Cuz it was. But I’ll tell ya, the party didn’t last. Our first year of marriage was HARD. And we hit another rough patch (a.k.a. the “come to Jesus” days) after our second son was born. I took all the marriage advice I could get.
For all you mommas out there looking for a little marriage help, I’ve invited Jen Weaver on the show to talk about her newest book, “A Wife’s Secret to Happiness”.
Jen is an adorable millennial who knows God’s Word and isn’t afraid to hit the marriage topic head on. She shares some great insights on a few controversial issues. But more than anything she helps us identify the marriage habits (a.k.a., “WifeStyles”) that are attracting or denying the blessings God has for our marriages.
What we chat about:
- What is a “wifestyle”?
- Habits that can attract or deny the blessings God has for our marriages
- The slightly-controversial topic of “submission”
- Making room for your spouse to lead and space for the Lord to speak.
- What about when your spouse isn’t walking with the Lord?
- Wifestyles: “braided” or “frayed”
- What Jesus asked Jen.
- Wifestyles: “doubtful” or “decided”
- When you go through a relationship winter after a new baby
- Hebrew convo about “chayil”and Proverbs 31 woman who is a wife of valor
