Shawn and I have been married for 21 years. I’m not sure how we made it through the early years other than by the grace of God. Over time these are the resources that we and others we know have found very helpful to growing their relationship.
If you are struggling in your marriage, we want to pray for you. We’ve been there. We’ve dealt with some incredibly hard things together and both of us refer to an early part of our marriage as literally 7 years in hell. It is truly by the grace of God and our faith in Jesus that we even stood a chance to get past those hard days to where we are now.

Spiritual Warfare: Resources for Christian Marriage
What are we filling our minds with? What thoughts do you dwell on? Do you allow the enemy to play tricks on your mind or like me, turn you into an accuser. Learning to take your thoughts captive is one of the biggest, most important battles in gaining victory over your life and your marriage. We need to be covering our spouse and children in prayer daily. Lifting our needs up to God and allowing Him to work through the chaos and mess and give us back something beautiful.
This video of Pastor Robert Morris at Gateway Church on the Jezebel Spirit was a huge help to setting Shawn free from the spiritual bondage he was in. It is an hour long, so if you don’t have time to watch it now I really recommend to bookmark the page or save the video to your watch later playlist on YouTube.
