This LIVE Show & Podcast is right for you if you are married and want to keep Jesus at the center of your relationship!

To explain why we’re doing this, let me tell you a story. For every wedding, we arrive before they have their First Look or First Prayer, so that we can pray over the bride and groom individually. Honestly, THAT is the most important part of the wedding day for us because we are able to intimately impact their marriage.

We pray over him and say, “Dear Jesus, we ask that you lead this man and guide him to grow into the leader of his family as he leans on you. When he sees her today, Lord, we ask that he see you, and that he know LOVE, deep LOVE fully and truly is in her because it comes from you.”

We pray over her and say, “Dear Jesus, we ask that you lead this gal and guide her to grow into the helpmate and equal to her groom. We ask that you guide her and help her to lean on you as she leans on her groom. When she sees him today, Lord, we ask that she see you, and that she know LOVE, deep LOVE fully and truly is in him because it comes from you.”

My heart is in love with weddings because it’s in love with couples pursuing Christ. On wedding days, I stand behind the camera but I stand beside the couple as they make their covenant. Every day past their wedding, those prayers begin to be answered, and I want to be with you to continue to pray, and continue to guide, and continue to stand beside.

Episode 3 – How To Grow Toward Christ Together

Let’s GO!

Welcome to The Soul Family LIVE Show & Podcast!

Today, we’re talking about on communication regarding faith. A lot of times, though, it’s not easy talk about because it usually revolves around whether or not you or your spouse likes a certain church, bible study, or devotional.

Now – before you said your i dos, how did you include God in your relationships? How did that change after your wedding day? Did your activities change or come to a complete stop days, months, or years after you said i do? I can relate. Let me tell you a story.

When we first got married, we moved to a new town and took our time to find a church and community we both loved. We got super involved in a downtown church and then started to get busy with career changes and year-round busy schedules. After 4 years, we are now finding our way back to community and to Christ, together.

If you haven’t noticed yet, you have a tendency to do whatever your spouse is doing. This is what I like to call a parallel pattern. It’s hard to break from the parallel pattern and it’s hard to add to the parallel pattern because it requires a commitment from both parties. You are bonded, united now, forever and ever amen. That means growing in your understanding & relationship with Christ as his disciple is meant to happen together too.

Rate on a 1-10 scale, how willing are you to grow together towards Christ? Your homework is to ask that question to your spouse as well, because it takes two willing hearts:

  • For God to grow you closer together and to Him

  • For daily desire to seek Jesus in sacred silence

  • For nightly prayer to begin

  • For weekly married couples bible study

  • For the grace to lead that bible study one day

  • For those around you to be impacted by the way you together reflect God’s love for His Church (for us!)

Are you willing? Is your spouse willing?

Ya’ll I desire and pray that you are, because we want you to be a testimony to God’s great bond of unconditional, covenantal love every single day. One thing that I often pray is that you are a power couple for Him only, but that can only begin when the power of the couple depends on Him. Being a power couple for Christ means you are leaning into prayer, scripture, and service together, it means you’re leaning into taking care of what matter most first – and that’s your relationships with the Lord and with each other.

Becoming a power couple takes leaning in and doing the work to let Jesus change you, ya’ll, so this week, we’ve got a download that is going to help you SO much and you’ll be able to find The Power Couple Practices Workbook right here!

Friend, you’ve got this. Get out there and hug your husband. Thank Jesus for him and let him hear you say, “Forever, I Choose You”, to grow with, to be molded with, and to lead others with. Amen.
