Until Expectations May You Part
Giddy with excitement and burning with love's fire, engaged couples are filled with desires and expectations Wonder and eager anticipation propel them forward. Then comes the marriage and if they take the wrong approach, those unrealized expectations and unmet wants can turn a life-giving covenant relationship into a dead-end contractual agreement. Suddenly your marriage has no love, joy, or peace. In this marriage-makeover DVD and study guide from Northpoint Resources, Andy Stanley's three key teachings help you transform your expectations and examine the I's of marriage: Keeping My I On You, Putting Your I Out, and It Takes Three. Broken into six DVD sessions with discussion questions, this is one lesson your marriage won t survive without.
Until Expectations Do Us Part
Standing at the altar we all had a picture of what our marriage would look like. The problem is this picture of marriage ends up as expectations that we unload on our spouse. The weight of these expectations will rob your marriage of love and joy. As a spouse you never feel like you measure up and you never feel like you are good enough.
So what are you to do with your expectations? You can t deny them because most expectations started out as God-given desires. In this DVD Andy Stanley explains that you must instead learn to transform your expectations and look to God if you are to experience marriage as it was designed. Sessions include:
Great Expectations
When Expectations Collide
One to Another
Husbands and Wives
It Takes Three
Box Talk
In addition to containing the original series messages, this DVD is enhanced with six curriculum study sessions that can be used for small groups or individual study. Each session includes 15-20 minutes of teaching followed by several discussion questions.
Story Behind the Book
Andy Stanley is the senior pastor of three North Point Ministries campuses, with a cumulative congregation of more than twenty thousand. As couples voiced their various marital struggles to him, the common root problem became undeniably clear. The me syndrome, or the I effect, was tearing apart husbands and wives who were once head-over-heels in love. To help couples step back from their immediate circumstances and realize the bigger picture, he preached a series called iMarriage. This DVD and study guide will empower couples everywhere to transform their marriages into the one God intends for them.
