What if there’s no such thing as “the one”—
but there’s something even better?
Many of us grew up with the idea that one day we would find a “soul mate.” In fact, the idea of a soul mate is ours, not God’s. God’s design is far greater.
Asking the provocative question, “What if being in love isn’t a good enough reason to get married?” Gary explores how, in God’s design, getting married to share a common spiritual mission leads us to the greatest joy of all.
In this eight-session video companion to Gary’s book The Sacred Search, you’ll explore with Gary why it’s so important to know the why of marriage before you know the who of marriage. Together you’ll look at:
- Why you should never marry for mercy
- Whether you should wait for God to bring you a spouse, or whether He calls you to actively pursue a wise marriage
- What great sex really means
- Why you don’t want what you think you want
- Why the myth of “the one” is so destructive, how it leads so many people into foolish marriages, and what the biblical alternative is
- Where God is leading you in your search for a kingdom-centered marriage
Here you’ll discover encouragement and practical advice for building a relationship with eternal purposes at heart.
Designed to be used with the accompanying study guide (included) in groups, as individuals, or as a couple.
