Re-thinking Christian Weddings | Part 3

12/10/2023
In their ongoing series, Dave and Bethlie explore the idea of a Christian wedding not just as a ceremony, but a sacred covenant. They discuss various aspects, starting from engagement to the wedding itself, and the importance of involving family and the church community in this journey. They also delve into the importance of recognizing marriage as a covenant, not simply a fairy-tale event. The focus in this episode is primarily on planning wisely. It's important to remember that a wedding is a combination of multiple elements. It starts with the best Christian premarital counseling possible, followed by thorough discussions about every aspect of your marriage in advance. They also advise you to set a budget for the wedding and stick to it. This may be challenging, but it's crucial to avoid falling into the trap of a consumerist culture that encourages overspending for a single event. Focusing on the covenant rather than the presentation is another key point we stress on. Traditionally, weddings are seen as grand affairs, often influenced by the media and culture. However, in a Christian wedding, it's the covenant that should be front and center. This doesn't mean that your wedding can't be beautiful. It can be stunningly beautiful even with simplicity, and most importantly, it's the covenant that you are making with each other before God and your witnesses that makes it truly meaningful. Planning wisely also includes thinking about the honeymoon as not just a vacation, but as the beginning of a covenant relationship. Dave and Bethlie suggest to choose a place that allows for relaxation, getting to know each other, and focusing on each other without distraction. Thank you again for joining us today. We hope you find these discussions helpful and inspiring as you rethink the idea of a Christian wedding. Stay tuned for our next episode where we will continue to explore this topic and focus on making Christian weddings distinctly sacred. #KeepingItYoungPodcast, #ChristianWeddings, #MarriageCovenant, #WeddingPlanning, #ChristianLife, #PremaritalCounseling, #Podcast, #Faith, #Family, #Ministry, #ChristianPerspective, #WeddingBudget, #ChristianMarriage Thank you to our sponsor My Pillow.

11/12/2023
Dave and Bethlie discuss how to handle special situation in training children. Topics include: What to do if you haven't been training What to do if you have a divided family What to do if you have adult children who need help The process of training children, emphasizing that it's a task that requires continual attention and reconciliation between exceptions and truth. Creating a structured plan is a must if there seems to be a deficit in training. One option is to hold a family meeting and clearly state new expectations with established consequences. For blended families, it's crucial to have open communication, collaboration and understanding despite any disagreement or division. Orders should not be given to the other parent, but suggestions should be made, and willingness to work within the limits of your control is advocated. For parents of adult children who are struggling or disobedient, pray without ceasing and never stop showing love. It is equally crucial not to let negativity creep in during your interactions. This includes sarcasm or passive aggression. Dave and Bethlie recommend maintaining an open line of communication and sharing concerns in controlled, serious conversations. Good communication is essential to enhancing the relationship and increasing influence and power in the lives of children.
