How we keep marriage strong in ministry

Posted on Aug 12, 2011 in Marriage

Mom praying for familyThis past spring my wife and I recorded a conversation with a couple other youth workers during LIVE YM Talk about the struggles and challenges as well as the joys and benefits of serving as a ministry family. We all discussed how can we keep our marriages strong and how we invest into our marriages as we invest into so many other people around us, as well as many other things. Dana and I were both pretty honest about our relationship, when it struggles, and when it does well.

Some highlights from our discussion:

  • Things that surround our strongest times of marriage
  • What tears down our marriages in ministry
  • Advice for strengthening your marriage while serving in ministry

The discussion was about an hour long and you can download the recording of it in iTunes below. Or, if you don’t use iTunes, here’s the audio, as well.
