That's a Wrap

So today is the last day of our "Week of Married Life" blog series. It's been fun collaborating with Pittstop and co-writing some of the days posts. It's also been fun to hear your stories and tidbits online and in person. I think overall, this week has served its purpose: to encourage others by showing that marriage is real, messy, imperfect, funny, and so not about us

I wanted to end this series with a mini-sermon by my favorite author on the topic of marriage. He authored the book This Momentary Marriage [which I highly recommend! Get it free here] which fits perfectly with the message we hoped to convey this week. Marriage is about the glory of God. It is the most explicit relationship we have on earth that so precisely displays the covenant love of God to His people. 

 In this video he is speaking on mine and Ty's favorite part of the book: The Compost Pile. 

*What and where is the compost pile in your marriage [or future marriage]? 
*Have you acknowledged it and will you choose to walk away? [Walking away is the hardest thing for me to do. Just sayin.]

Hope you were encouraged this week and we hope to do more series like this! Tell us what you want to read, learn, hear, laugh more about in the comment section or email juliannamorlet@gmail.com
