Today we break down second wave of speakers and the key take aways we took from their speeches!
Our Take Aways From Chelsea Smith
1.) Watch Your Thoughts. Watch Your Words
Words and thoughts either kill your marriage slowly or they progressively give life to your marriage. Understanding that every word you speak, every thought you think effects the quality of your marriage.
2.) Continuously Find Common Interest
Your marriages quality of life boils down to common interest and passion. Where most marriages implode because people grow apart. Not on purpose, not intentionally, but slowing over time. As people get older they take interest in different things.
It’s never too late to cultivate common interest and passions. Cultivate a shared passion.
Our Big Take Aways From Derwin Gray

Accept The Baggage
When you say “I do” , you also say “I do” to the spiritual backpack of brokenness. You are accepting that whatever that person has been through in the past or is possibly going through right now is yours too. A backpack full of hurt, pain, frustration, and more. Understand that we are born broken, each of us has issues, or family issues and we must understand that as a good spouse.
How do we actually tighten the knot?
Knot Action #1: Embrace Gods purpose for marriage. Your marriage and my marriage belongs to Jesus. It’s a picture to show how Jesus loves to the world. The purpose of your marriage is to provide an example for everyone that is contact with you. The purpose of our marriage is an example for the entire Lifestyle Creators community
Knot Action #2: Embrace a new identity for your marriage. When you become one . The way you think about yourself is the way you’ll treat your spouse.
Knot Action #3: Embrace love and respect

Marriage Goal Setting
What do you want your marriage to be like 10 years from now? Start by filling out yearly goals, then work backwards. Your biggest dreams for the future are possible, but only when you commit to change today and everyday that follows.
Ten Years From Now: ______________
“Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.”
In a Year: ________________
Next Month: _________________
Next Week: ____________________
How To Set Goals Together:
- Make an agenda – The worst meeting have one thing in common: no agenda. Make a short list of topics you want to talk about (such as life goals, family finances, the calendar, your intimacy etc. Then…
- Get out of the house – Maybe take a weekend trip. Maybe you go to a local coffee shop around the corner. Just block out a few hours of intentional time where you can both focus on the agenda. Then…
- Pray and talk – Ask God for help. He wants to help you! Start with the first topic of the agenda, and go down the list one topic at a time. Be honest with each other. Its that easy. (And that complex) Then…
- Plan your next steps – The is to work toward unity in each topic, and to create clear action steps together!
