After Fierce Women was released, I started getting requests for marriage advice through social media, emails to this website, or women I’d meet at conferences. Every story I receive carries a depth of pain and confusion that hits me hard. Most reach out with the desire to find answers. Many of your stories bring tears to my eyes and I want to sit down and spend time with each of you, telling you how gracious God is and encouraging you to press into all He has for you through the pain. I pray for you as I read through your story.
When Men Who Love Fierce Women was released, those requests increased and now it isn’t just women asking me for help; men are begging for answers from both of us.
LeRoy and I are praying about setting up (online) a regular time to live stream with those of you who are interested. We’re considering doing this weekly or monthly (still talking and praying through the details) through Facebook. The way it could work is for us to choose a topic to talk about briefly, providing some marital encouragement or practical help, and then follow that up with answering some specific questions that you send in on this website or on the Facebook page.
It’s not that we need something else to add to our already full schedules, or that we’re fans of social media (neither of us are), or want to invade people’s personal space . . . we’re just praying about how to serve those of you who reach out needing answers and encouragement. Or maybe you just need to hear from a couple who’s been in the dark pit of marital misery and experienced God’s gracious rescue.
We’re seeking God and considering the best way to minister to hurting couples.
And we’d appreciate your help!
I hope you’ll respond to these questions and give us some needed input:
- Would a Facebook Livestream “Marriage Talk Time” be something you would be interested in?
- Do you think it could be a helpful resource for you or for your friends/loved ones?
- How often should we do this? Weekly? Monthly?
- Any suggestions for what we should call it?
- Would you participate?
- Would you tell others about this opportunity or share through social media?
- Will you join us in prayer for this ministry opportunity?
Ok, those are our questions. Ready, set, GO! Send us your answers below ~
