Session Titles and Descripitions

 

Session 1 — The Empowered Marriage – Eric Ludy 

Every newly married couple wants to live out a happily-ever-after marriage. But the secret to “happily-ever-after” can’t be found merely in human love or good intentions. The devilish forces arrayed against marriage are greater than the power and resolution of the married couple. To win this battle of married love and to triumph in it, a couple must discover the source of heavenly power that can turn a barely surviving marriage into a totally triumphant marriage.  

 

 Session 2 — The Unbreakable Marriage – Eric Ludy 

It is much easier for marriages to decompose than for them to grow strong. The devil hates marriage and deems it one of his greatest threats, and therefore, spends his best and brightest demons to destroy Christian marriages. However, God loves marriage and has supplied ample strength and power to undergird His children and to make strong this imperative institution in His Heavenly economy. God wants to build every Christian marriage into an unbreakable marriage. It’s high time we all joined Him in this pursuit.  

 

 Session 3 — The Beautiful Marriage – Eric Ludy 

Modern marriage is often more a survival adventure than it is a romantic, beautiful one. But, God’s design for marriage is that it reflect the unseen realm and the luster of His Heavenly Kingdom be revealed in and through its triumph. It’s supposed to be beautiful. But this “beauty” isn’t found through ease and comfort as the world would attempt to convince us that it must, but through trials and challenge. A marriage that thrives is a marriage that overcomes. A marriage that lasts is a marriage that has learned to see God take every challenge and turn it into a triumph.  

 

Session 4 – The Manly-Side of Marriage – Eric Ludy speaking with the husbands 

Today’s marriages are in desperate need of something more. They need the strong elixir of the manliness of Jesus Christ. Most men today have been built from the world’s manly lumber when it comes to the construction of their maleness, but God has something far superior that He is desiring for each of us as men. He has supplied heavenly lumber for the task. This message will explore the unique and powerful design of manhood and how God desires to both construct and empower each of us as men to fulfill His high calling. 

Session 4 – A Vibrant Marriage: Cultivating Spiritual Unity in Marriage – Leslie Ludy Zoom Session and Q&A with the wives 

 Amid the busyness and difficulties of daily life, it’s easy to overlook the importance of building spiritual unity with your spouse.  In this session Leslie shares Biblical keys to growing spiritually with your spouse, building a powerful prayer life with your spouse, and building a vibrant, Christ-centered marriage even in the challenging seasons of life. 

 

 Session 5 – The Excellent Marriage – Eric Ludy 

 A great marriage is not found accidentally, but very much on purpose. Just like a fine violin, it takes a master to craft it. God is very skilled at building wonderful marriages, but few of us are wonderful at submitting to Him and allowing Him to have His way with our marriages. This message unpacks heavenly secrets to building something extravagantly lovely and powerfully excellent in our earthly marriages.
