Please join us in welcoming our guest, Brad Rhoads. Brad is with us to talk about his newest book, The Grace Marriage: How the Gospel and Intentionality Transform Your Relationship. Brad begins by explaining why the honeymoon phase seems to end so quickly for couples, and he describes any differences he’s seeing in this between Christian couples and non-Christian couples right after they get married. Brad tells us how to avoid the comparison trap and gives us the consequences that come with it. He also discusses how a stronger focus on grace helps couples manage marital conflict. He addresses the person having a hard time admitting their own deficiencies and speaks encouragement to the couples struggling to thrive and are just surviving in their marriage.
