Marriage can be extremely difficult work. Here are three daily habits which I strive to practice (imperfectly with much stumbling) in marriage.

This video is slightly adapted from my viral post "3 Lessons I Learned Instantly In My First Week of Marriage (That I’ll Need For Life)" - https://jsparkblog.com/2015/03/17/3-lessons-i-learned-instantly-in-my-first-week-of-marriage-that-ill-need-for-life/ Watch this on...

I also share on trying to help those with mental illness, and...

Romans 7-8. Everyone's talking about change, but we never quite live up to who we want to be. How can we be more than inspired, but actually different?

John 20. Series: Snapshots: Men & Women of the Bible. Part 4. Acceptance of the unfit misfit. "My 72 hours inside a mental institution, the two opposite and equally false judgments we make about everyone in the room, that moment when you imitate the guy you don't like with the crazy evil villain voice, if the Gospel of Jesus were re-written as an Epic Greek Myth with rippling muscles, and loving enough to find those cockroaches in your friend's bed." 7-6-14

Luke 19:1-10. Series: Snapshots: Men & Women of the Bible. Part 3. Freedom from the labels that enslave us. "The Permanent Time-Stamped Label when you grow up in the same town long enough, your reaction when a five year old calls himself stupid, that time I got the embarrassing price check for hemorrhoid cream on the intercom, treating a prostitute like a lady for one night, eating pasta so good that it ruins all pasta, and pushing back the flurry of voices to grab God's one true...

Luke 10:38-42. Series: Snapshots: Men & Women of the Bible. Part 2. Breaking through constant distractions. "When your brain goes off on a bizarre obscure thought-train, writing term papers before the existence of Wikipedia, four studies on the mind-warping effects of social media, the dehumanizing psychology behind flirtation, the secret competition of elaborate marriage proposals to get the most views on YouTube, and the simplicity of getting to know someone for who they are."...

Romans 12:9-21. Series: The Names of God. Part 5. Creating a real life free of reactionary backlash. "The preacher-cliché story of my rescue dog Rosco, the back-and-forth craziness of internet comments and message boards, the uniqueness of Christian Creation account versus others, the plague of Room-Vampires who drain the life out of a room, that time I fought a bully  by yelling 'I love you,' and Seven Keys to living a Life of Action Vs. Reaction." 3-30-14
Psalm 23. Series: The Names of God. Part 4. The shepherd of our wants and needs. "The most polite argument from a British couple I've ever heard, praying for God to pull brain-wire to change your behavior, the brainwashing of Apple products, the tension between what I want and what I should want, why I'd rather have ice cream and hamburgers over good advice when I'm hurting, our two major reactions when life punches us in the gut, and the gospel of the NAVY Seals." 3-23-14

John 15. Series: The Names of God. Part 2. The unthinkable truth that God is your friend. "How to pick groomsmen for your wedding, when your friend sees you flip out and melt down and all your slobbery mess, bringing a big dude to a schoolyard fight to get your back, who Jesus would sit next to at church, how to destroy your enemies (spoiler: turn them into friends), that brave moment when you try to make a joke in a crowd and it falls dead, and good news for the awkward introverted shy...

Luke 15. Series: The Names of God. Part 1. God our Father wants His kids to get along. "My dramatic shift from wild rebellious living to judgmental critical religion, how our God is an awesome dad in Heaven who enjoys His kids, that moment at 3am when you wonder how you ever got into this, the Only Two Types of People in the world divided right down the middle, and that time my dad pulled a Jedi and rescued my brother from drowning." 3-2-14

Mark 15. Series: Mark the Cosmic Journey. Part 9. The last 12 hours of Jesus's life. "That explosive ugly moment on the reality show when the celebrity flips out, that time Jesus did a Jedi force push on the Roman soldiers, committing adultery against God, the pasta that ruins all other pasta, and how God punches tragedy in the face." 12-15-13

Mark 12:41-44. Series: Mark the Cosmic Journey. Part 8. Real love will cost you. "How children responded to the question: What is love?, the false Hollywood hormonal emotional pseudo-romance, when a baby congratulates his parents, how church is like a rough rock tumbler, when an entire Hillsong audience walks past a homeless guy, and how to give away $10,000." 12-1-13

Mark 12:1-12. Series: Mark, the Cosmic Journey. Part 7. The wrath of God and your last day on earth. "Where we'll be a million years from now, when you use a toilet brush to brush your teeth, that time I dodged a bullet to my stomach, the most hardcore quote by Francis Chan ever, and writing your will every day." 11-17-13

Mark 8-9. Series: Mark, the Cosmic Journey. Part 6. For strugglers and dry seasons, there is grace. "All the crazy intense work that goes into the Wedding Day, the false spiritually high emotionalism of self-topping church, Jesus shoots lightning out his face, those Israelites who screamed the whole way through the Red Sea, and struggling faith-weaklings like me." 11-10-13

Mark 14. Series: Mark, the Cosmic Journey. Part 5. The life of Peter, and how a guy like him gives hope for us. "That late night regret-twitch before you go to sleep, managing the crazy person inside you that jumps out and messes up everything, the consistently inconsistent spiritual walk, Peter goes nuts and cuts a dude, how grace is like $20, and breaking the labels that you've been raised with." 11-3-13

Mark 7. Series: Mark, the Cosmic Journey. Part 4. Faith vs. Religion. "That one time my mama whipped me for redecorating everything with gray paint, the forbidden ice cream in the freezer, the crushing moral paradigm of Good Advice, when you tell cancer patients to just 'think positive,' and Straight A Jesus." 10-27-13

Mark 5:1-20. Series: Mark, The Cosmic Journey. Part 3. "When the Bible becomes a horror movie soap opera, the truth behind demon possession and spinning heads, Jesus versus Breaking Bad, that moment after an insane argument in your home when you have to start apologizing to closed doors, and that time I called all my ex-girlfriends to say I was wrong about everything." 10-13-13

Mark 2:13-17. Series: Mark, The Cosmic Journey. Part 2. Jesus calls the not-good-enough. "The day I saw a pastor at the strip club, the life and times of Matthew Levi the hardcore playboy, that awkward moment at the club when the houselights turn on, Jesus versus the Pharisees in a Freestyle Battle Throwdown, and the first step in leaving behind the slavery of sin." 10-6-13

Mark 1. Series: Mark, the Cosmic Journey. Part 1. Why we can believe, even amidst intense doubts. "That moment when you think all this church-faith-Bible stuff is just a crazy lie, what we would look like if our words were weapons, the day God punched the stars and ripped a hole in the sky, 17 reasons why I still like you, and long-distance phone calls with God." 9-29-13

John 3:25-30. Faith Struggle. Part 6. What it means to glorify God. "Sixth grade heartbreak by bullies and boyhood crushes, the art of story-topping and joke-killing, when athletes thank God in an interview, falling off the Grand Canyon, and Jesus at the end of the world." 9-22-13

John 4. Faith Struggle. Part 5. What you're really about. "That time my dad (a 9th degree black belt) put a sword to a dude's throat, black holes and wormholes and time travel, using self-pity as a permission slip for craziness, finally asking why we ever need to do homework, and a Spoken Word performance." 9-15-13

Romans 8:31-39. Faith Struggle. Part 4. The anxiety of getting approval and acceptance. "Waiting for 'likes' on your Facebook profile picture, the desperate race of 'Validate Me,' when YOLO used to be popular, that time I didn't get stabbed, deciding who gets thrown off a boat to save the others, and what to do when the whole world hates your guts." 9-1-13
