In this episode, Sammie has a conversation with Rachel and Thomas Awtrey; two people who love Jesus, are chasing after Him, and just happen to have met in their high school youth group. Now, after years of dating and pursuing one another, they've been married for three years and share what they've learned through the love story that God has given them.
Rachel and Thomas live in Birmingham, Alabama, where they attend Church of the Highlands; Rachel spends her days sharing tips, tricks, and truth on social media through her blog and her podcast, Behind the Bliss. Thomas spends his days as a member of the Alabama Air National Guard, along with travelling and adventuring since he has his pilot's license! They also have a precious pup named Remi! They're full of energy, wisdom, and their love for one another shines through in my conversation with them.
We talk about so many things, ranging from how to keep Christ at the center of your relationship, how to trust Him even when things don't seem to be going your way, sexual purity + repentance, tips for engagement, all the way to how to champion one another in marriage and cultivate a friendship along with romance.
Here's some things we mentioned in this episode:
