The His and Her Money Show

In the tapestry of human relationships, marriage stands as a sacred bond that transcends the mundane and reflects a deeper, spiritual connection. Rooted in the teachings of Christianity, the institution of marriage is regarded as a divine gift that carries profound meaning and purpose. The Christian perspective on marriage goes beyond the union of two individuals; it encompasses a journey of love, faith, and partnership ordained by God. This unique interpretation infuses marriage with a sense of purpose, highlighting its potential to be a source of spiritual growth, mutual support, and a testament to God's love for His people.

At the heart of the Christian marriage lies a commitment to emulate the love and sacrifice exemplified by Jesus Christ. This commitment extends beyond romantic affections, emphasizing a selfless dedication to nurturing a lifelong partnership that mirrors the unconditional love of God. In this episode of The His and Her Money Show, we are joined by Aaron and Jennifer Smith, marriage ministers, to talk bout their book: The Marriage Gift.

Aaron and Jennifer Smith share their story of how they got into educating others about happy marriages, how people can break the shame of asking for help in an unhappy marriage, the results of seeking help and guidance in our marriages, and the power of prayers in marriages. They also talk about how we can strive to become better at praying as a unit in marriages, some of the family prayer rhythms we can adapt, and tips to keep the stamina during the times when you feel you are doing the spiritual work of two people.

In the journey of life, there are moments when we stumble, falter, and find ourselves ensnared in the relentless grip of adversity. It's easy to feel broken and defeated, overwhelmed by the weight of our mistakes and the scars of our past.

Yet, amidst the darkest hours and deepest wounds, there shines a resilient truth: we are never beyond redemption, never truly shattered beyond repair. The story of moving "from trauma to triumph" is a testament to the indomitable human spirit, a reminder that even when battered by life's storms, we remain, like priceless treasures, graced with an enduring, God-given value.

 No matter how badly you've messed up, no matter what hardship or pain you've experienced, nothing can destroy the priceless, God-given value of your life. In this episode of The His and Her Money Show, we are joined by Michael Todd, The number one New York Times bestselling author of Relationship Goals and Crazy Faith, to discuss his new book, Damaged but Not Destroyed.

Pastor Michael shares the story behind the book: Damaged but Not Destroyed, how he managed to acknowledge the damage despite the culture of suppressing pain, and how parents with special needs children can recover from the disappointment of God.

He also talks about the joy that comes with recognizing your value, how we can include our spouses in our personal healing journey, and how personal healing journeys can help the journey to health and wellness. Tune in to learn more!
