Making Time Count In Your Marriage
00:35:47
Everyone has the same amount of time in a day, yet we all manage our time differently and many of us may have lost a healthy perspective of and use of our time. In this episode, we discuss time and how if we value our time correctly then we can be more effective for the ministry God has for our marriages. We talk about how much time we have or how little we actually have. How do we perceive the value of our time? How can we see our time differently, how can we use it more effectively? Do we need to slow down? and most importantly we must ask ourselves what God's word says about time. -- Take our 31-day marriage prayer challenge today and join the 1000's of couples who have done it. https://shop.marriageaftergod.com/products/thirty-one-prayers-bundle -- FOR MORE MARRIAGE ENCOURAGEMENT https://marriageaftergod.com https://instagram.com/marriageaftergod SHOP MARRIAGE RESOURCES https://shop.marriageaftergod.com FOR WIVES https://unveiledwife.com https://facebook.com/unveiledwife FOR HUSBANDS https://husbandrevolution.com https://facebook.com/HusbandRevolution

Let's Talk About Social Media And Marriage
00:37:16
We haven't figured out how to perfectly navigate social media in our marriage and family which is why we wanted to talk about this subject today.

How To Work as a Team During Postpartum
00:41:34
The Postpartum season and any other time of trial or hardship can really rock a marriage. In this episode, we discuss our past experiences of postpartum and why this fourth time around was so different. We specifically address a decision we both made before the baby was born and how it impacted the wellness of the whole family during postpartum. Postpartum is a trying time as a husband and wife get disrupted with a new baby, crying, sleepless nights, pain, and a jolt in the day to day routines. However, we realized that being a team and working together is critical during this season. We talk about how selfishness and fairness cause bitterness and frustration, we talk about expectations, walking in the Spirit, and we talk about preparedness and how much that can really help the marriage during postpartum.

Take our 31-day marriage prayer challenge today and join the 1000's of couples who have done it. https://shop.marriageaftergod.com/products/thirty-one-prayers-bundle -- Being unequally yoked in marriage means that one spouse is walking in obedience to God and the other is not. This can become a source of contention that amplifies other marriage issues that can arise even in relationships when both spouses are both walking with God. This can be a painful situation to experience, but for anyone in this position there is hope and it starts with the spouse who knows God. The most important thing in a marriage with a spouse who doesn’t know God or isn’t obeying Him, is Salvation! The desire to see that spouse come to know and love God is more important than happily ever after! In this week’s episode of Marriage After God we discuss some important details about being unequally yoked in marriage. We specifically give 4 Biblical tips for those who are married to a non-believer or a spouse who claims to be Christian but does not obey God’s Word and the power that person has to influence the other spouse’s life! Get the right perspective. Don’t leave. Pray for them and yourself. Be an example.

Are you a liar in your marriage?
00:25:19
Lying is one of those things that can easily get overlooked, although it affects marriage in big ways. In this episode of Marriage After God we discuss the impact of lying, what scripture says about it, we share personal examples of small lies in our marriage, and we challenge husbands and wives to evaluate whether they are liars or walking in integrity. Lying, both big lies and little lies, causes disunity and distrust in marriage. A marriage after God, a husband and wife after God, are people of light and integrity, pursuing and cultivating truth in everything they do. 31-Day Marriage Prayer Challenge: https://shop.marriageaftergod.com/products/thirty-one-prayers-bundle The Unveiled Wife Book: https://shop.marriageaftergod.com/collections/devotionals/products/the-unveiled-wife-embracing-intimacy-with-god-and-your-husband-by-jennifer-smith I Love My Wife Shirt: https://shop.marriageaftergod.com/collections/apparel/products/i-love-my-wife -- FOR MORE ENCOURAGEMENT https://marriageaftergod.com https://instagram.com/marriageaftergod SHOP MARRIAGE RESOURCES https://shop.unveiledwife.com FOR WIVES https://unveiledwife.com https://facebook.com/unveiledwife FOR HUSBANDS https://husbandrevolution.com https://facebook.com/HusbandRevolution

How To Make The Most Out Of Your Summer Family Outings
00:23:14
Summertime can be such a fun time for your marriage and for your family. It can also be a hard and frustrating time if we aren't careful with how we approach all of those fun family outings and trips. Whether you are going to the pool or to the beach, to the mountains or to the lake it is important for us to be prepared in our hearts so that we do not let our selves get in the way of the peace and joy our families will experience. Also, we must remember that our lives are meant for more than we realize and while we are enjoying our family outings God just might also have a mission for us and our families.

Stop Escaping the Hard Things In Your Marriage
00:22:01
Why you should stop trying to escape the hard things in your marriage. Marriage is hard. We all go through trials and tribulations. In fact, the Bible promises us that we will encounter hard things in life. Jennifer and I were notoriously great at escaping the issues in our marriage in the beginning. We managed to find every excuse to avoid dealing with our sexual issues and our hearts towards God and each other. God finally got a hold of our stubborn hearts and showed us the beauty and healing that can come from facing our trials head-on. In This episode of Marriage After God we discuss how we managed to escape our problems and how we changed and found healing.

How To Have A Healthy Biblical Relationship With Your In-laws
00:28:42
When we say "I do" we are saying yes to the person we have fallen in love with. However, that person comes from a family and part of marriage is navigating how to respect both sets of family. Marriage is about two people who have different backgrounds and upbringings becoming one, making their own unique family. In-laws and extended families are one of those areas of marriage that can be a source of contention for couples. We get asked quite a bit of questions for advice on how to respect these relationships while still trying to work together in marriage to build the family God desires. In this episode, we chat about marriage and in-laws. We take a look at some scripture that helps us understand the significance of being one in marriage. We also talk about boundaries. -- FOR MORE ENCOURAGEMENT https://marriageaftergod.com https://instagram.com/marriageaftergod SHOP MARRIAGE RESOURCES https://shop.unveiledwife.com FOR WIVES https://unveiledwife.com https://facebook.com/unveiledwife FOR HUSBANDS https://husbandrevolution.com https://facebook.com/HusbandRevolution

Our Need for Romance In Marriage (Physical & Emotional)
00:33:02
Romance is the feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love. Romance is breaking up the mundane of the day to remind each other that you desire them and are thinking of them. Every marriage needs romance. We discuss the importance of both physical and emotional romance in marriage. Physical romance includes touch, affection, sex, kissing, holding hands, and all of the different ways a husband and wife connect physically to show their love for each other. Emotional romance is connectedness through communication, becoming known, spending quality time together, listening to each other, laughing and playing together, cultivating a strong bond of unity. We must not see a husband or wife only need one form of romance over another, both are important for a marriage to thrive. A marriage after God pursues physical and emotional romance continuously. -- FOR MORE ENCOURAGEMENT https://marriageaftergod.com https://instagram.com/marriageaftergod SHOP MARRIAGE RESOURCES https://shop.unveiledwife.com FOR WIVES https://unveiledwife.com https://facebook.com/unveiledwife FOR HUSBANDS https://husbandrevolution.com https://facebook.com/HusbandRevolution

How To Study The Bible As A Family
00:29:31
One of the main roles, if not the most important role, of the Christian parent, is to teach and disciple their children in the Word of God. We have been given the greatest task of all time, to raise our children to know God and his Word. We are not only supposed to read it to them but also to teach it and live it out, especially the live it out part. The Bible gives us very real and specific instructions on this. The word of God is to be taught in every part of our lives. Not just on Sundays. Not just at church but in every facet of our every day lives. But this task could be daunting. The idea of being responsible for their Biblical knowledge and understanding can invoke many fears and inadequacies in us. You may feel unprepared or incapable. You may think that you don't know enough about the Bible or are unqualified to teach it to your children. Well, we are here to encourage you that you can and must. That God has called you to be the main place that your children learn about Him. You can do this and we want to help you get started. - FOR MORE ENCOURAGEMENT https://marriageaftergod.com https://instagram.com/marriageaftergod SHOP MARRIAGE RESOURCES https://shop.unveiledwife.com FOR WIVES https://unveiledwife.com https://facebook.com/unveiledwife FOR HUSBANDS https://husbandrevolution.com https://facebook.com/HusbandRevolution
