Rebuilding a Marriage

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.
