Marriage Is So Great/Challenging
Marriage is one of the most rewarding experiences in life but it also is a lot of hard work. We weren’t created for marriage, rather we find that marriage was made for us. The picture of Jesus and his bride (the church) lived out in a day-to-day balance of dying to self and service. In this episode, join Justin, Colin, and Danny as we talk through life lessons in relationships that helped us understand what God was directing us each to in our own marriages. After that, Justin hosts his good friend Brett Winingham in studio who shares amazing stories of transformation in his own life through his marriage. Then, you won’t want to miss an epic “Rom-Com” draft as Tyler and Zac join Justin and Colin in a battle for the ages. ============================= Uncharted: Channel Credits ============================= 🎙️ HOST:: Justin Adams, Colin McFarland, Danny Oertli 🎉 SPECIAL GUEST:: Zac Anderson, Brett Winingham, Tyler Wells 🎛️ PRODUCER:: Andrew Lepard 🎨 CREATIVE DIRECTOR:: Colin McFarland A Product of the Mission Hills Podcast Network in Littleton, CO. © Mission Hills Church - All Rights Reserved
