We Want You To Have a Stupendous Marriage!

Hi!

Lisa and Stu Gray
We’re Stu and Lisa Gray. We live south of Nashville, Tennessee with our 8 year old son, and a dog named BOO! (Sounds like we should be from Tennessee doesn’t it?)

I (Stu) enjoy the journey of being a husband and father – plus a freelance entrepreneur (I am a Speaker, voiceover actor, audio production specialist and copywriter).  I have also written about marriage for the Traditional Love blog at YourTango — another resource to encourage you in your marriage.

Can I brag on my wife? Lisa is a tremendous woman, beautiful wife, Mother and the best Real Estate Agent in Middle Tennessee (of course, I’m biased!). Her passion is to encourage women to be who God made them to be, in their marriage, their professional life, their parenting, their finances… in every part of their life.

Why Stupendous Marriage?

After six years of marriage, I (Stu) realized that I was taking my relationship for granted. Lisa and I were not communicating well, and I felt we had hit rock bottom. Not wanting to let our relationship fall apart, I began reading lots of books about what makes a great marriage.

With my change of heart, a change of my ways, and a super crazy urge to read every book on marriage I could get my hands on, came a desire to honor my marriage, and work on building the best one I can — A Stupendous Marriage! Plus, I realized that what I was reading and learning was not just valuable to me, but would be valuable to others whose marriages were less than stupendous.

Encouraging couples is something that God laid on my heart, and it just won’t go away. I go back to 1 Corinthians 14:3 that talks about encouraging, strengthening and comforting people with the words we say. Specifically, for us on this website, that means married couples.

The first generation of this blog (called ‘The Marry Blogger’) began in 2009, and this version of Stupendous Marriage was launched in April of 2011. Currently you can listen to our Marriage podcast or be encouraged by some of our writing about marriages.
