Would you call your marriage fun? Pastor Ted Cunningham reflects on his fun-loving engagement and marriage to his bride of 17 years, Amy, but admits that the early years of matrimony weren’t without their challenges. Ted talks about the difficulty he had of opening his heart to his wife, especially about his struggle with lust. Once he overcame his fear, however, they began to experience authentic, true joy. Ted also shares some sound advice for getting your marriage out of the doldrums and back on the happy track. Ted suggests intentionally filling your partner’s “love jug,” but not until first connecting into your real source of love and fulfillment, Jesus Christ.
