04: Andrea and Elliott on Vulnerability, Intentionality and Communication in Marriage

Andrea and Elliott met when they were 13…through her sister and his brother…at a construction site. Say what?! We’ll hear more backstory on this. They were reunited after a couple years when Andrea’s family moved permanently to California. Andrea hadn’t thought much about Elliott since their initial meeting. Elliott’s side to the story is a bit different. Elliot was “sold”.  He knew Andrea was the one from when he had first met her.  

They discuss what the road to them dating looked like and how in dating they began asking the hard questions. The hard things? Some real things, deep heart things…like a battle with pornography. Elliott shares the journey he took toward true deliverance and gives practical tools for anyone struggling with this same thing. The pay off to working through these hard things before marriage?  A blissful first year of being married…and continued bliss and trust in marriage.

Their story is beautiful! You’ll be blessed to hear it all in full! Click to listen.
