Gary Thomas: The Best Marriages Are Not About Happiness … but Holiness

What if God’s primary intent for your marriage isn’t to make you happy . . . but holy? And, what if your relationship isn’t as much about you and your spouse as it is about you and God?

Gary Thomas is a bestselling author and international speaker who specializes in bringing people closer to Christ and closer to others. In this conversation, Gary and Charles delve deeply into how marriages can become a doorway to a closer walk with Christ and each other. Rather than wasting time with how-to steps that are “guaranteed” to give you a happy marriage, Gary makes the case for friendship, hard work, and holiness. Whether you’re in a relationship or want to be in one, this episode is for you.
