In this week’s episode of The Thriving on Purpose Podcast, Elisabeth and Sebastien Richard share their insight on what makes for a thriving Kingdom marriage.
Those of you who are married know just how challenging it can be to have a thriving marriage in today’s day and age. The secret to enjoying a good marriage is not just a matter of believing what we’re told in Scripture about husband and wife roles, but to make the crucial decision that you will do everything you can to live out those truths daily.
This is easier said than done, right?
And, what about controversial stuff like the wife having to submit to her husband? Is this still good for today? How can today’s couples apply biblical marital principles from 2000 years ago? Is it even realistic?

As disciplined disciples, we need to implement habits in our walk with God.
For years it was believed in the personal growth community that it takes 21 days to develop a habit.
Recently however, some scientific studies and experiments have proven this to be a fallacy.
According to Phillippa Lally; a health psychology researcher at University College London, a new habit usually takes a little more than 2 months — 66 days to be exact — and as much as 254 days until it’s fully formed.
Yes, it probably takes this long to mortify the flesh.
So, what are the 3 disciplines that the devil and his henchmen will do everything in their power to keep you from?
Well, it’s not rocket science. You probably know them already…
But just to be sure… you’d better listen anyway. 😉
Oh, and I (Sebastien) also cover seven steps to develop a new habit to help you to be well on your way in resisting the devil!See Show Notes
1 Peter 2:11 says:
“Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul.”
The definition of a pilgrim says: One who journeys in foreign lands. One who travels to a shrine or holy place as a devotee.
A pilgrim is always on the move. A pilgrim doesn’t stay put for long.
While they may pitch their tent in one place, they never do it for too long.
The Bible says that we are pilgrims on this earth. We are travelling through.
But our journey doesn’t strictly limit itself to our time on earth, but is also determined by our journey into truth.
God has called each of us to be lifelong learners. To learn something new each step of the way with Him by our side.
This means that as we learn and grow, we’ll also embrace and abandon, learn and unlearn, consider and reconsider. Our knowledge base and understanding will change with each passing season. Sometimes, it may even change into something that’s downright scary!
Like Thomas Jefferson, we too should be able to say: “I was bold in the pursuit of knowledge, never fearing to follow truth and reason to whatever results they led, and bearding every authority which stood in their way.”
So, how far are YOU willing to change and adapt as God shows you new truths?See Show Notes
“The Number of Churchless Americans Has Jumped by Nearly One-Third in Just 20 Years.”
So… how can this be understood, or explained in any way? What causes people to “leave the faith”? Or perhaps they’re just leaving… Churchianity?
This is what we’ll answer in this week’s explosive episode!See Show Notes
You cannot lead effectively in the Kingdom of God without a strong mindset.
This leadership principle is taught at all the high-performance seminars across the world. However, for the believer, a strong mindset has different components than, say, high-performance corporate seminars or business leaders.
God desires you to have a mindset that reflects His Kingdom. He wants you to think like He thinks, see like He sees, and speak like He speaks.
But this is easier said than done, right?
So, in this episode we continue our Kingdom Leadership Series by giving you 7 Mindset Keys to Unlock Your Leadership.
