The Mary Marantz Show

Apr 13, 2021

Do you feel like you and your spouse are never on the same team? Do you want a flourishing and vibrant marriage, but wonder how in the world to get there? If this is you, then you are going to love today’s episode!

Today, Mary is joined for a second time by author, speaker, and podcast host - Jamie Ivey as well as her husband and worship pastor- Aaron Ivey.

And you are in for a special treat, as Mary’s technical director and husband, Justin, joins the conversation as well as the group dives into Jamie and Aaron’s new book, “Complement: The Surprising Beauty of Choosing Together Over Separate in Marriage.” With funny, real-life stories and key insights from Scripture, “Complement” helps readers unite with their spouse, cheer each other on, and serve one another well—even in conflict or tough times!

On today’s episode, no topic is off limits as the group dives into:

  • The dangerous trap of why it becomes so easy to stop pursing your spouse after marriage;
  • The distorted cultural views of submission, servanthood, and leadership within a marriage while offering a better view of a healthy, godly marriage; and,
  • The purpose of marriage as the Scripture relates it while tackling topics such as family mission, sex, leadership, fighting, and forgiveness.

After listening you will:

  • Be equipped with the keys to build a satisfying and lasting marriage;
  • Know how to serve and love your spouse from a place of overflow rather than a place of selfishness or fear; and,
  • Learn the secret of doing life together (even amidst conflict) when you feel like you are being pulled in opposite directions.


If you are ready to embrace God’s grace and experience a strong, healthy, and vibrant marriage, you will not want to miss today’s powerful episode!
