  1. Thanks so much Tim for sharing this video. Gayle and I shared this video with a friend of ours who has just as big a heart as Larissa.

  2. Shirley and I really enjoyed watching this together. Christ is enough! Thanks for sharing this post Tim!

  3. Thanks Tim for sharing the video link about Ian & Larissa- what a blessed story and inspiration. truly.

  4. Wow, I LOVE this picture of Christ’s working in hearts. I am so grateful that Chris loved me beyond my “disabilities” which I believe we all have, although they are not always as obvious as a physical limitation. Thank YOU so much for sharing this video. I can’t wait to live it and pass it on!! -Terri

  5. came across it my self a bit ago, so powerfull!!!! Makesu ask the question of yourself, would I follow through and love like that?


  6. Thanks for posting, Tim. And – Terri Brady – that was a great comment, being “loved beyond my “disabilities” which I believe we all have, although they are not always as obvious as a physical limitation.”

  7. Thanks for sharing such an inspirational, tender, vulnerable video with us. We just celebrated our 7th anniversary and still struggle to communicate daily. Without God and LIFE we would never have made it this far much less be excited about the next 7 and what lies ahead for us! Thanks again! God Bless them over and over!

  8. AfterI watched this video I decided to do a John Piper bible study, and went to an incredible new church today with my sister to try to really improve upon my own faith. That is exactly what is happening. This video, and that marriage, are a blessing to everyone.

  9. This video shows me how far I have yet to go in learning to love. If our covenant is to reflect the best of God in us, then these filters, rocks, veggitation and swirling mud have to be removed. This message brings me to my knees, to the foot of the cross for only Christ’s love will do. Thank you for this Tim and Amy. Thank you.

  10. Thank you Tim!

    This is such a prime example of what God’s Love is for us. That is what a true marrige should be. This truly is a powerful video. I think that any couple going into marriage should see this video. God Bless you Tim for the work that God sent you to do.
    God Bless

  11. So much on Christ-centered faith, Christ-centered marriage, sacrificial love, friendship, giving, father leading the family, and a whole bunch more. Very inspiring and humbling.

  12. Thank you Tim for sharing this video. It reminds me that we do serve an awesome and we do need to remember to keep God the center focus because when both people in a marriage do, it will draw you as a couple closer together. THank you again for sharing and this is a video I will be sharing with others.

  13. Very moving story, it makes me so thankful and appreciative of the little things I take for granted each and every day! Thank you for sharing this with us!

  14. Thanks for the post Tim! One problem that I’ve always had with things like the 5 Love Languages or His Needs Her Needs is the tendency to use that knowledge to justify treating our spouses poorly when we are not being loved “properly” or our needs are not being met (even though our focus with that knowledge should be to love our spouses better). This couple seems to do a good job modeling the 1 Corinthians 13 love–love that is wholly focused on the other person and not on ourselves at all; love made possible because of Christ and his example. Thanks for the reminder. Much appreciated! God bless!

  15. I feel the same as Larissa. God is good and He’s enough and my guy will always be my guy. The only thing that can separate our marriage is death.

  16. What an amazing story of dream, struggle, victory. We can all take a lesson from this story. Thank you for sharing.

  17. This is a great video, It shows us that no matter what happens Christ is with us and our loved ones.

    Thanks Tim!

  18. It is so easy to lament in what could have been or should have been – I love this inspiring story of making the absolute best of what is, and allowing God to be part of the marriage. I also loved Terri’s comment about being loved through her “disabilities”. That is so true for all of us!

  19. I watched this video this morning Tim, All I kept thinking about is the word “unconditional”. Terri Brady said it best a few blogs back. “We all have disabilities.” and thankfully he loves us anyway. What an example Christ uses here for Love! A little humility today seemed to make mine seem pretty small! Thanks for sharing..

  20. What a beautiful story and such a wonderful picture of marriage, both here on this earth and the ultimate marriage of Christ and the church. “This Momentary Marriage” is an amazing book. Thanks so much for sharing this!!!!

  21. what an amazing love! A great example and inspiration for all of us to live and love! “God is awesome!” Thanks Tim!

  22. [Col 3:1-25 KJV] – (1-11) If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, [who is] our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them. But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new [man], which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond [nor] free: but Christ [is] all, and in all.

    (12-17) Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also [do] ye. And above all these things [put on] charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, [do] all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

    (18-25) Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord. Husbands, love [your] wives, and be not bitter against them. Children, obey [your] parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord. Fathers, provoke not your children [to anger], lest they be discouraged. Servants, obey in all things [your] masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God: And whatsoever ye do, do [it] heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.

  23. It was great to see you and Amy Tuesday night. I caught a glimpse of you two praying together before you each went up to speak. Very Inspiring! I love that you are definately leading by example. This video also is very inspiring. Thank you both for all you do!
