My favorite podcast is LifeChurch.tv’s video message series. Craig Groeschel’s teaching always challenges me spiritually and his insights into scripture align with real-life application in convicting ways. Now that I have my iPod Touch (that I got for FREE!) I watch the podcast almost every week.
A couple weeks ago I was catching up on some past messages and started watching his 4-part series called, Goin’ All The Way, that covers almost everything about love and relationships, from dating to sex to marriage. As I watched the first message titled, How to Find the One, I soon stopped what I was doing and devoted all my attention to his sermon. But then I couldn’t stop right there — I had to watch the rest of the series, which I did. Since then I’ve probably watched all four messages about five times.
I recommended the series to all of our high school small group leaders and a couple of them took me up on the suggestion. Each week they watch one of the messages on DVD then discuss it afterwards. Everyone loved it! The reports I heard about the discussions that took place were phenomenal! I highly recommend you check this series out for your youth group, for yourself, for married couples, or all of the above.

Craig also has a book that goes by the same title: Going All the Way: Preparing for a Marriage That Goes the Distance. I haven’t read it myself, but I’m assuming the video series is based on his book.
