In this episode, Chris and Wendy talk through an early time in their marriage when the shine of new love began to fade, conflicts escalated, and the challenges to maintain intimacy in marriage just seemed to keep coming:

  • A mother’s devastating diagnosis…
  • Their own unexpected health issues…
  • The ugly reality of one another’s unhealthy coping strategies…
  • The after-effects of having been raised in the “purity culture” of the late 80s…
  • And oh… the joys and challenges of welcoming a new child into the family…

How can a young couple find a way to grow in faith individually and as a couple, when every day it feels like they are just dodging ferocious predators, stepping on land mines, and trying to navigate a none-too-seaworthy ship through a dense and disorienting fog? (Um, yes, that mix of metaphors is intentional.)

And at the same time, how does the grace & kindness of Jesus become more real through the tangible care and comfort of His people in the church?

Tune in for an intimate conversation as Chris and Wendy pull back the veil on those days of feeling unmoored, anxious, and overwhelmed—and yet also seen, held, and cared for…  by a God who really honors His promise to be a “very present help in trouble.”
