#24 Your Marriage God's Way With Pastor Scott LaPierre
A great conversation with Pastor Scott LaPierre. He is a teaching Pastor at Woodland Church in Woodland, Washington, and a father of nine children with his wife, Katie.
He is also a conference speaker and holds a MA in Biblical Studies from Liberty University. He is a former schoolteacher and Army officer. Scott and Katie are passionate homeschooling advocates while raising their big family.
He discusses his book, Your Marriage God's Way-a guide for biblical marriage. Accompanying his workbook, intended for the husband and wife to write answers over several months and share. His books provide definite instructions for husbands and wives. Scott imparts wisdom for a godly marriage supported by scripture.
Scott also makes good points about women submitting to their husbands and what that means in the context of a biblical marriage. He discusses how a godly husband leads the home with Christ but is still guided by his wife to compliment him to listen to her opinions and advice.
