We are thrilled to welcome Ben Stuart to the Redeemed Girl blog today.
We’ve been a huge fan since his Breakaway Ministry days, and we are now so excited to see God using him and his wife, Donna to launch Passion City Church in Washington, D.

Second, I would challenge you to take up His cause. Deliver to him all the longings of your heart, knowing he cares deeply about you.What do you believe the key is to a thriving Christ-centered marriage for the long haul?Ben: Again, there are so many things I could mention here! In Genesis 1 God used His creativity, power and wisdom to create an environment where the man and woman could flourish. He used the word “cultivate.” It means to use your God-given powers to create an environment where life can reach it’s fullest potential.You also want a man who has a character shaped by Jesus.Jesus sacrificed His life so that we could flourish under God. One who lives to use all his gifts, time and influence so that those around him can be all they are meant to be under God.
Like a loving dad, He wants to hear the heart of His children.
