Millions of married couples have pledged to "love and to cherish, until death do us part." Most of us understand and get the love part... but what does it mean to cherish your spouse? Why do we say it once at the wedding and then rarely ever mention it again? 

In this six-session audio Bible study, bestselling author Gary Thomas draws on personal stories and teachings from the Bible to show how cherishing can have a powerful effect on marriage. Learning to truly cherish each other turns marriage from an obligation into a delight. It lifts marriage above a commitment to a precious priority. Cherish is the melody that makes a marriage sing.

If you find yourself going through the motions in your marriage, Thomas will walk you and your spouse through real ways to reverse the pattern:  

  • Erase contempt and honor your spouse 
  • Stop comparing and focus on the unique traits in your spouse 
  • Let go of hurts and forgive your spouse 
  • Go beyond serving and showcase your spouse 
  • Don't stop trying. The more you cherish your spouse, the more you will cherish your spouse.  

Many couples survive by gritting their teeth and holding on. Or they find themselves just "going through the motions" in their relationship. But cherishing your spouse can reverse this pattern. Cherishing can breathe light, hope, and new life into a marriage--even one marred by neglect and disrespect.

These sessions will reflect the ambiance of the unique recording locations, immersing the listener into the teaching.
