Marriage can be both holy and happy, but it takes serious work, commitment, and an unwavering desire to place God at the center of your relationship through His Spirit, studying His Word, and being in community with His people. Join us as we unpack the concept of marriage mentor group in this 4-part #MarriageMentor series.
Too many marriages struggle unnecessarily because they don’t have mentors in their lives. In this podcast, Michael and Cindy will share about the couples who invested in their marriage, shared advice, and role modeled healthy marriages. And they will encourage you on how you can start thinking about finding peers, mentors, and becoming a mentor yourself.
As newlyweds begin to face challenges and experience bumps in the road, it’s all too easy to believe the lie that your experience is unique or you have to fight through it alone. Learning how to find other believing couples who are two-years, five-years, 30-years ahead of you, can provide vital support that you need to cheer on your marriage and give long-term perspective.
Exploring and applying God’s purpose of marriage, the concept of two becoming one, and the responses of leadership and submission became a crucial cornerstone in our marriage and in the marriage mentor group curriculum we teach.
If you don’t continue to date your spouse, you will drift apart. You may be good roommates, good parenting-partners, or even two ships passing in the night. But to have a great marriage, means to stay connected through common interests, spending intentional time together, where you continual pursue your spouse. Hear from Michael and Cindy Easley as they divulge their own journey to finding common interests and prioritizing date night.
When a male leads on the ballroom dance floor, he leads with strength and clear cues so his partner knows what steps she’ll take next. The female dancer has to place complete confidence and trust in her male counterpart, as much of the time she is being led to dance backwards. When Michael and Cindy first took dance lessons, they noticed that a lot of their interaction on the dance floor was very symbolic of their roles in marriage. Hear more in this podcast/broadcast about submission in marriage and on the dance floor.
Why does the woman drop her maiden name and take on the husband’s last name? This isn’t a “man’s world” cultural tradition. It’s a biblical concept. In this broadcast/podcast, Michael takes us back to the creation story in Genesis and shows us the Biblical perspective on a shared last name.
