If you’ve been married for more than a month you know marriage is amazing and wonderful, but it’s also hard work. It takes more than strong feelings; marriage takes intentionality, effort, sacrifice, and commitment to make it last.
The fact that you’re a Christians couple does not make marriage any easier. In fact, Christian marriages are particularly vulnerable to the Devil’s schemes — he would love nothing more than to see two people who are united in Christ become divided, broken and miserable. Most of us can testify that there are a lot of voices out there telling us what to do and what to believe as far as marriage is concerned, and it can be hard to know which of those to trust.
Luckily, right now it is easy than ever to find good resources to help your Christian marriage thrive. We now have at our disposal trusted, highly recommended books, podcasts, blogs, conferences and workbooks that are packed full of wisdom, tips, insights and hopeful encouragement to strengthen your marriage. Yes, marriage is hard, but it’s also possible to make it last and to bear good fruit and find more joy than you thought.
Since most of us now hardly find time to engage in serious reading or are too occupied to attend conferences, we have put together five of the most popular Christian podcasts (downloadable online radios) that intrinsically deals with marital issues you can listen to at any time. We hope that these podcasts will help guide you and your spouse into greater intimacy, trust and love as you live out your calling to love one another all the days of your life.
