About This Episode:

Most who have experience will readily agree: marriage is hard. But is it worth it? In a country where marriage gets a bad rap, it seems as though an exciting, loving, satisfying, Christ-honoring, lasting marital relationship is unattainable. But what if it doesn’t have to be that way? What if marriage was fun? Adventurous? Meaningful? Jamie Ivey joins us again to give her insight into these questions about marriage. Hey! Fun news! She and her husband, Aaron, just released a new Bible study, Complement: Seeing the Beauty of Marriage Through Scripture, and book duo, Complement: The Surprising Beauty of Choosing Together Over Separate in Marriage that you can now get your hands on! There’s so much more available to us in a marriage relationship than culture would have us believe. Jamie encourages us in today’s episode to build a satisfying and lasting marriage by centering it around Christ, uniting with your spouse, cheering each other on, responding the right way when they fail each other, and serving one another well.
