Couples walk down the aisle on their wedding day, with big hopes for the future. But when life's trials set in, for many, those dreams are dashed. They don't always know how to turn their disappointments around. Ron and Jody Zappia faced that same problem early in their marriage. Then they met Jesus. They're now leading a church and a marriage ministry. They talk with Ed Stetzer on how couples can find techniques and hope to rebuild their marriage from the ground up.
Ron Zappia is senior pastor and founder of Highpoint Church in Chicagoland and the teaching ministry, Highpoint Ministries. Ron and his wife, Jody, lead The Knot Marriage Conference as well as counsel many couples, all with the goal of helping couples strengthen their marriages through marriage enrichment and restoration. Ron and Jody were high school sweethearts, married after college, but they ran into some challenges during their first year of marriage and considered divorce. Then they met Jesus. Now they offer couples techniques and hope on how to rebuild their marriage from the ground up.
