After dating only five months, and finding out they were expecting, Tim and Kathy Bush got married. They admit they had more lows than highs over the first 27 years of marriage.

Rank #11: Starting Together

Podcast cover

Dave Harvey, author of "I Still Do," talks about the circles of influence that make up each one of us. In the center is the heart, which is the wellspring of our worship and motivations. Surrounding that is our embodied soul wrapped in flesh. Another circle is our social systems, like families, which influence who we are. Everyone has a context, and once a husband or wife understands what their spouse's context is, they'll love and understand each other better.

Love Is Tenacious and Committed

Dave and Ann Wilson interview Bob Lepine about the qualities of biblical love from 1 Corinthians 13. Love is more than a feeling, and there really is a kind of love that "never fails." But how can a spouse bear and endure all things when things feel unbearable? How can a person believe all things when his/her spouse is deceitful? And how can we avoid enabling wrong behavior, including physical and emotional abuse, as we pursue a marriage that goes the distance?

If you want to connect with your teens, you have to be available. That's the advice of author Jeffrey Dean. Dean gives parents some practical advice for effectively communicating with their kids. Parents can begin by talking to their kids about the things they like to do or are interested in. Parents can then branch out to more difficult topics. Dean encourages parents to look for opportunities, like driving them to school or dinnertime, to have great conversations.

The Marks of a Successful Teen

Podcast cover
Read more

Jeffrey Dean, author of the book, "Raising Successful Teens," knows that raising a successful teen is less about perfection and more about pursuit. Encouraging your kids to make good grades, get into a good college, and marry well is fine, but Dean says parents should have a bigger goal than that. Dean believes parents should be intentional about raising kids who love the Lord above all else. To see that happen, parents have to recalibrate their definition of success. Step one for parents is to model a faithful, loving walk with Christ themselves.

Podcast cover

College pastor Shelby Abbott talks about dating and why the important parts should not happen digitally, including asking for a date. Abbott encourages parents to teach their daughters early on how a boy should treat them by talking to them about dating expectations and even taking them on daddy/daughter dates. As they grow to understand Jesus' love for them, they'll have that example to refer to when they decide who they will date.
