“You don’t take a bath and then get cleaned up, you take a bath to get cleaned up. You don’t try to get clean and then go to Jesus, you go to Jesus and He cleans you up. And there’s real strength in that.”
“To look at someone as an object, whatever that may be for – any kind of a gain, pleasure, finances, prestige – to use another person is completely the opposite of love.”
Whatever struggles and obstacles that come our way – those can then be offered up and transformed into something that makes the couple even stronger than they were before. They had that storm or that challenge, and they overcame it.
“I’m trying to go back out and wake people up and say “Christ is Real. He rose from the dead, he wants to save us.” But we’re falling asleep back in our sin, we’re going back to bed, we’re pressing the snooze button, and we’re not rising up to the challenges that are faced before us.”

“If I fundamentally believe that I’m unworthy of love, or that I’m bad, or I’m trash… why would I want to bring that forth? If I do bring that up, and that person responds with empathy or unconditional love, that’s the antidote, that’s the answer.”

“If we keep going to God with our prayers & petitions with thanksgiving, constantly to the Lord, surrendering it all to Him, it’s like these guard rails are going up that’s going to protect us from falling into the trap of despair.”
“God wants us to engage, and He is with us, taking that offering of whatever we’re going through, but at the same time, He’s near to us in those moments, in those struggles, that we’re not alone.”
“Us and our five kids, we’re praying for people and we’re offering up what could be tragic up to God, and we’re redeeming souls. Everybody’s praying for a miracle, I tell you what, we’ve already had a miracle.”
