With Bob Lepine


You know Bob Lepine as the Family Radio morning host who helps you start your days with biblical wisdom. He’s also an author and a pastor! He has so much wisdom to share, so while husbands and wives around the world are preparing to celebrate Valentine’s Day, we thought we’d share . . .  

Tip #1 – What makes a marriage work? Why is it so hard to be kind—and how can you be kind to your spouse, even when they don’t deserve it? 

Tip #2 – Do you care more about your car than your marriage? Are you sure? How much time and effort are you investing into your marriage? How can you give your marriage what it really needs? 

Tip #3 – How much does “your talk” affect your marriage? Does your speech to and/or about your spouse corrupt, or build up? 

Tip #4 – Are you fixating on what’s wrong in your marriage instead of being grateful for what’s right? When you come to a difficult spot, what’s keeping your marriage strong? 

Tip #5 – If your marriage were a tree, what would the fruit look like? What fruit would you want to produce? And if you don’t have that fruit, how can you get it? 

Tip #6 – Are you a regular, quick confessor? What’s the proper motive for asking for forgiveness? And why is forgiveness the key to your healing? 

Tip #7 – Is your speech salty enough? Salt gives good flavor—and biblically, salty speech “tastes” better. How can you add salt to your speech? 

Tip #8 – How do you deal with trials that challenge your marriage? Sarah and Matt felt like Job—like they’d lost more than they could handle. Where is hope found in the trials? 

Tip #9 – “How do I fix me?” Maybe that’s the question that will make your marriage thrive.  Hank found it easy to blame his wife, but the Lord kept reminding Hank to point at himself first. 

Tip #10 – Two questions that can transform your marriage: First, “how do you feel?” Second, “Do you want me to fix it, or just listen?
