Pastors Brad and Stephanie White are the founders of Gathering Church in Tampa Florida. What they call a church “for people who don’t do church,” has grown to see thousands of people come and experience authentic life changes through the message of Jesus.
After being married for nearly 25 years Brad and Stephine have been through their ups and downs and come out as a stronger couple because of it. Tune in to see how this power couple has learned the importance of commitment, forgiveness, and patience to create a marriage that can withstand any challenge.
“It's the commitment to doing the hard stuff, to forgiving when you don't want to forgive, to forgetting when you don't want to forget, to just keep moving forward” -Stephine
“At the end of the day, I try to make the 75-year-old decision. When I’m 75 and my kids are grown and they have families of their own and I’m in that season of life what decision will I be glad that I made'' - Brad
“I encourage people if you can go to lunch at a restaurant where the sun is shining into the restaurant and have a difficult conversation. You’re going to be in a better mood, more accepting, it's a better atmosphere than your kids running around, and the sink full of dishes, laundry piled up on the couch and all of the above” -Brad
“At the end of the day, it's about the commitment. What's the most important thing for you? Is it the fight and being right? Or is it your spouse and going the distance?” - Stephanie
“Marriage is a journey of learning to do what you don't want to do.” -Brad
“When you're really staying with someone it takes patients throughout the day, throughout the week, throughout the month, throughout life. You're loving the same person through the ups and downs.” -Stephanie
“That’s part of the blessing of being together as a married couple, being able to laugh and have fun and be friends. I feel like being a married couple, the best part is being with your best friend” - Stepanie
