Against All Odds

Marriage|Roundtable
Guests: Dr. Kneeland Brown and Tearrah Brown

[27:02] - 

Dr. Kneeland Brown, executive director of the Focus Leadership Institute, had one mandate from his father before leaving for college: to find a godly "chocolate sister" to marry. He rose to the challenge, but it wasn't easy. He had to buck stereotypes, define his vision for marriage, overcome socio-economic challenges and then win the heart of his now-wife, Tearrah, who had her own ideas about marriage and carried the baggage of growing up with an alcoholic father. They learned a lot in their journey, which they share quite candidly here.

Guests: Gary Thomas

[21:43] - 

You know that he wrote Sacred Marriage. Now Gary Thomas is back with The Sacred Search, an application of biblical principles when it comes specifically to finding a spouse. What if it's not about who you marry, but why? This is the question Gary dismantles for us in this in-studio interview.

Becoming One

Marriage|Inbox
Guests: Candice Watters

[5:47] - 

It's one thing to be a good roommate, and there's a lot you can learn relationally from that experience. But a marriage relationship is more. How can you transition into marriage with a goal to actually "become one" with your spouse and not just someone who shares the bathroom sink? Candice Watters contributes her thoughts.
