Faith in Focus: The Highest Prize (Philippians 3:13-14)

Featured Presentation: The Goal Setting Habits of Thriving Couples

Special Guest: James and Cynthia Greene, Marriage Built2Last

What Exactly is Goal Setting?
According to, “Goal setting is an important method of deciding what you want to achieve in your life. Separating what’s important from what’s irrelevant, or a distraction. Motivating yourself, Building your self-confidence, based on successful achievement of goals.”
In this episode, I discuss the following important topics and much more with my special guests:
  • Why goal-setting is important for couples
  • The pitfalls of not goal setting as a couple
  • The five life areas to focus goal setting: Education, Financial, Health, Family/Personal, and Spiritual
  • How goal setting enhances marital intimacy
  • What to do when your spouse doesn’t want to work with you in setting goals
  • Why you should include your children in your goal setting activities
  • and, much much more.

Practical Tip: Write down as a couple your answer to… “Where do we expect to be in five years as a couple?”
