May 29, 2019

Hey gang ... 

Welcome to YOUR Marriage Matterz episode YMM #067 ... 5 "Vital Signs" That You Have A Vibrant, Healthy Marriage! In this week's episode we draw on Christie's experience as a nurse that teaches CPR, Advanced Life Support Systems and a number of other classes that teach other nurses how to check "vital signs" in their patients. 

We are going to look at 5 Vitals Signs we see in vibrant, healthy marriages. They are:

  • Communicating effectively ...
  • Dealing with conflict in a constructive manner ... 
  • Planning and dreaming a future together ... 
  • Constantly growing individually and as a couple ... 
  • A deep love, appreciation and respect for each other!

So, check it out and assess your own relationship "vital signs"!

Hey gang ... 

Welcome to YOUR Marriage Matterz podcast episode YMM #065 ... What To Do When God Doesn't Answer Your Prayer the First Time? 

This is the final episode of the 40 Days of Prayer series and man have we learned a lot about prayer! Today we learn about unanswered prayer. As you will hear, all prayer is answered in one of 4 ways. 

God says ...

  • No - I won't do what you ask because he knows what's best for us!
  • Grow - I need for you to mature a little bit before I answer that prayer. 
  • Slow - which means "wait" now is not the time. And, God's timing is always perfect!
  • Go - this is the answer we always want ... YES!

We trust you have enjoyed the series and we trust you will enjoy this last, but very important, episode!

Hey gang ... 

Welcome to YOUR Marriage Matterz episode YMM #064 ... How To Pray In A Crisis! This is our 6th week in Rick Warren's 40 Days of Prayer and we are going to learn the pattern for praying in a crisis from Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 20 when 3 vast armies attacked the Israelites and Jehoshaphat had only 2 days warning! Talking about a crisis!

To summarize his prayer he basically said to God ... "I know who you are, I know what you have said, I know what you have done, I know what you have promised and I know you will do it again"!

Talk about trusting and depending on God! That is the model we want and need to utilize when our marriage, kids, family, health, finances or anything else is in a crisis!

We trust you will find this episode as valuable as we did!

Hey gang ... 

Welcome to YMM #063 ... Praying For A Breakthrough! We are in Week 5 of Rick Warren's 40 Days of Prayer study and this week we are going to learn the pattern for praying for a major change!

This week's lesson comes out of Daniel Chapter 9 and we are given the pattern Daniel used when he needed a breakthrough for the people of Israel who were in exile in Babylonia!

This is the same pattern we need to use when we are looking for a breakthrough in our marriages! 

We trust you will enjoy this week ...
