About Shelby Hughes

I grew up in a small cabin built by none other than my parents themselves. They had help here and there, but Dad drew up the blueprint, we moved hundreds of miles away, and they got to work.

MTT 004: Loving Your Spouse

When we said "I do," we promised to have and to hold until death do us part. And we promised to do that no matter what. To have and to hold means that we cherish our spouse, and that we spend time with one another. But in the busy of life, it can be difficult to live that out sometimes, and it's not because we don't love our spouse, but because it's difficult to carve out intentional time for our spouse.

In this episode, we will uncover ways to make time for our spouse and what loving them well looks like. If you want to make your marriage stronger, this episode is for you. And if you're single, there's a little word in here for you, too.

From The Podcast: The Art Of Marriage (Family Life Ministries) Scripture from Ephesians 5: 22-33 (King James Version)
