A Marriage of Unusual Excellence p2 slides.002.jpg

It’s no secret: many marriages in the world are broken. They’re full of conflict, envy, lies, resentment, fear. Thankfully, the way of Christ allows us to aspire to more. In this series, we’ll talk about how to create something different than what so many have--how to create a marriage of unusual excellence.


PART 1: TOUGH LOVE

Want a marriage of unusual excellence? It's going to take one thing: loving well. But what does that mean? As we begin this series, we'll unpack the first part of a helpful definition of love--as we do, we'll discover what creates a safe, reliable environment in which an intimate relationship can truly flourish.
