Church Shopping, or Nah?


Whether or not you grew up in a culturally religious home, there is no denying that the way we think about spirituality as adults impacts the way we treat each other in our marriages.

While it’s not necessary to see eye-to-eye on every detail of your theology – what you think about God – it is important to have common ground. Yet, even when two people share their faith, they may not agree on how that faith works out when it comes to attending religious services or going to church as a family.

In this episode, we unpack a question from Rachel submitted to Ask #staymarried. She’s concerned that her husband Shawn, who once attended church with her regularly, would now prefer to spend his Sundays hunting and fishing. She asked us if we have advice on how to “get him to come to church” with her. We address that, as well as our own perspective on our current “church shopping” journey.


I mentioned Church Clarity as one helpful resource if you happen to be on your own “church shopping” journey. You can learn more about them here… And, we agree with them; Clarity is reasonable.
