I remember when God put it on my heart to help marriages. In 2008, I was a facilitator with a ministry that helped people cope with divorce. Having gone through it myself, I knew it was a great ministry. But my heart ached. Each person represented another broken heart. Another broken family. And I wanted the ministry to disappear. I wanted there to not be a need for it. I wanted to be on the other side. There just wasn’t a ministry that existed to take a proactive approach to marital conflict. The only options I knew of were church small groups helping each other and marriage counseling. Nothing on a wider scale. Despite my heart longing to do something to help, I was stuck.

New Movie Trailer:
Here’s the 1 minute teaser trailer to Pressure Points #7 on intimacy issues in marriage, entitled ‘Storms‘.
The Corinthians wrote Apostle Paul about some of their marital issues. Seemingly the Corinthians believed good married Christians abstained from sex. Paul clears up this misconception with this message:
“The wife does not have authority over her own body but yields it to her husband. In the same way, the husband does not have authority over his own body but yields it to his wife. Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.”
-1 Corinthians 7:4-5 NIV
God created sex for marriage. If sex is an issue in your marriage, for whatever reason, get assistance from a licensed [and preferably Christian] professional. Don’t let a sexless marriage tear your marriage apart.
You are loved!

“I want to get married,” he said.
Under different conditions, those words would have caused me to jump for joy with the excitement and anticipation of a bride-to-be. There was one small problem…. we were already married. The perplexed and befuddled look on my face accompanied my confused response.
“We are married.”
“No… I want to marry Jan.”
With those two short sentences, my world began to crumble. I was stunned into stillness. No immediate tears, no screaming, just shock. You see, he had been doing a medical residency working long hours, even 36-hour shifts. He came home and fell into bed each evening. I thought I was doing my part to help his career, supporting the family with my corporate job by day and taking care of our 6-month-old daughter in the evenings. I knew we weren’t spending much time together, but I chalked it up to the rigors of the medical profession. I believed it was for a season until he could get out of training and establish his own practice.
If you had asked me even the day before how I would react to this news, I would have told you that I would either have melted in a puddle of tears or grabbed the nearest chair and hit him with it. But I didn’t react that way at all. Yes, I had been betrayed. Yes, it hurt more than any pain I had experienced in 28 years of life. But in the midst of the hurt was love, the most difficult oxymoron to explain unless you’ve experienced it.
Our original short film, ‘Cheater‘ (based on 1 Corinthians 7:2) captures a raw conversation about the husband’s infidelity. It is possible to heal a marriage after the fallout of infidelity, but only through transparency, counseling, forgiveness, restoration and with God.
