Sometimes getting your congregation to do anything new might feel like crying out in the wilderness. But it doesn’t have to.

On Friday, we unlocked free access to Matt Chandler’s marriage book, The Mingling of Souls, for over 6,000 people in this Faithlife Group. (You can still get free access until February 15 if you follow the group.)

A couple weeks ago, you couldn’t go on Facebook without seeing someone link to this plugin that calculated your most-used words.

Not everyone can be vulnerable enough to admit their mistakes, but Matt and Lauren Chandler want to show you that every Christian couple has their own challenges to overcome—and as you’ll see in the video below, the mistakes they’ve made were rooted in some of their biggest problems as individuals.
Matt and Lauren Chandler are hosting an online marriage conference from February 19–20. Together, they’ll discuss God’s good design for love, marriage, sex, and redemption—sharing insights from their own struggles coupled with what Scripture reveals about romance.
