As I look back over the last month and reflect on our recently-completed series at Relevant, It’s Complicated, I realize that while we answered a lot of questions about relationships, singleness, and sexuality, there are other important related topics that we just did not have time to cover. Following are links that may help you navigate some of the questions we did not have time to address during this series:


I Do (a message from the “My Crazy Family” series)
In The Beginning (a message from the “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” series)
Two Shall Become One (a special message on marriage)


Sexual Identity Q & A (from the “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” series)
Pornography Q & A (from the “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” series)
What the Bible Says About Masturbation (article)
Does the Bible Say That Masturbation Is a Sin? (article)


“Happiness Is…” Series


“When Love Grows Cold” Series

I certainly don’t have all the answers and I realize that God’s Word, the Bible, is more direct about some issues than others. Yet I am confident that if we dig into Scripture, ask for wisdom, and seek godly advice, we will be better equipped to make choices that honor God and bring out the best in others and ourselves. Blessings to you as you pursue healthy relationships and habits!

    Hello, I just wanted to let you know that through hearing your ministry and finding a new relationship with God, the lives and relationships in our family have been so greatly impacted. Throughout the past year my husband and I have had many struggles within our marriage, our jobs as parents and with ourselves. We have had to learn to hand it all over to God, and through him we have grown strong, and healed. I feel so blessed to be part of Relevant, but even more so in knowing I have a new relationship with God. Some messages have been hard to hear and have struck nerves but the transparency that you give on Sunday’s mornings has been a great lesson in reflection and how to always bring God into the center of everything, even when it’s the hardest to do. I know for myself I still have so much more that I would like to work on, and wIll have difficult times in the future but I have peace knowing my relationship with God will never change. So thank you for all that you and your family share. I have been to many churches, but never one that has made it so abundantly clear of gods love and role in my life. I cannot wait to see what great things Relevant holds in the future years, but I have no doubt it will be tremendous!! Thank you-
