Engaged? Plan Your Dream Marriage!

Planning a wedding is different from preparing for a marriage, though both can be full of joy! Listen as Marriage Ministries leaders David and Jamie Ake share three great ways newly engaged couples can prepare for a lifetime adventure together.

  1. Find out strength and growth areas as a couple.
  2. Have purposeful conversations around key topics before you marry so that you can pursue clarity and unity as a couple.
  3. Embrace the wisdom, encouragement, and investment of those who have gone before.

    David Ake is Associate Pastor of Marriage Ministries at Stonebriar Community Church. David and his wife, Jamie, have been married for sixteen years, and David is still trying to figure out how Jamie fell in love with him. They have two daughters who have to hear all the time about how much Mom and Dad are in love. (They roll their eyes a lot.) Jamie and David fight, hug, laugh, and kiss a lot in front of their kids, and they love how their kids ask them to leave on dates so that they can have their own “me time.” They pray a lot for the men who will show up at their door someday to take their own girls out on a date.
