The Idolatry of Marriage

Marriage is to be honored as the Bible directs us but is it being held in highest honor? Or in other words, have we, the church, made an idol out of the institution of marriage? Yes? No? Maybe so?

Gender Identity, Biblical Womanhood, & Girly Girls

Jackie never considered herself a "Girly Girl" or whatever that means. She, like many women, found themselves being labeled a "TomBoy" or "Masculine" because she didn't wear purses and the like. These words were spoken by people who never had a biblical framework for how to understand gender in the first place. Situations such as these have clearly led to much confusion in the church and in the culture about what it means to be male and female in this world. Listen in as Preston and Jackie chat about it.

When Your Man is Intimidated by Your Gifts

Giftedness and the success that can accompany it isn't gendered. Both men and women have the capacity to do great things with the gifts God has given them. But for some women, this comes with a hefty price. Their gifts, talents, and abilities can tend to intimidate the men in their lives. On this episode, Preston and Jackie have a conversation about why that's a thing and what couples can do individually to love and support each other above it all.

How To Argue Well

Who doesn't get into an argument with their significant other every now and then? Over unwashed dishes, a irritating tone of voice, bad breath, the assumption of disrespect, leaving the fridge open, and texting while a partner is talking, couples will argue over any and everything. Arguments aren't necessarily a bad thing though. They can be helpful in identifying issues in the relationship that need to be addressed but we have to learn how do it well first. How we communicate during conflict will determine if it will end in unity or in division. Listen in as The Perrys take on this topic.
