6 Relational Tools

The idea of soul care often seems to have negative connotations attached to it, when really, every person and every marriage needs this kind of attention. Working on your marriage is a good thing, not a signal that something is seriously wrong.

We pastors can, at times, have a hard time admitting when things aren‘t going well and when our marriage is anything less than perfectly healthy. Many of us feel that we’re not supposed to share when things are hard or strained. We see this as a sign of weakness or failure, and we want to appear as if our personal lives fulfill the expectations laid out in 1 Timothy 3— to be above reproach, manage our families well, and have children who respect and obey us. The need to work on our marriages, through soul care or counseling, might mean other people will think we aren’t fit for ministry.

But this mind-set couldn’t be further from the truth!

Our goal of this blog is to share stories (both good and bad), thoughts and insights about our marriage and we would love for you to jump into the conversation.

The goal is to provide three things:
1) HOPE for struggling couples that they are not alone.
2) GROWTH in our marriages and our understanding of marriage.
3) ENCOURAGEMENT to keep loving your spouse unconditionally.
