Gary Thomas wants to help couples anticipate and prepare for the unexpected storms of life that will impact their marriage relationship. On this Focus on the Family broadcast, the best-selling author shares a story about his experience during Hurricane Harvey in 2017 which flooded the Houston area – an event for which he was woefully underprepared. He draws upon this experience to illustrate the stressful impact of life's storms on a marriage, and shares examples he's witnessed, including a diagnosis of MS, financial hardship, pornography addiction, and the death of a child. Using these as "case studies," Gary offers practical guidance to help couples cope with fear, overcome anger in conflict, stay connected with their spouse, and more. He also addresses the importance of community and entrusting God with marital concerns. Overall, Gary offers an inspirational and encouraging message of hope for all married couples.
