Listen as Mark Gungor shares his candid and comedic approach to bringing more laughter and purpose to intimate relationships. Using the church as a base for marriage education, Mark dispels the myths of both the overly romantic or overly spiritual ideas that prevent people from doing the committed work of loving and caring for one another. This conversation will wake you up to the power and inspiration that a little bit of humor can bring to long term relationships.
Mark Gungor is Sr. Pastor of Celebration Church, a multi-site church with five campuses across Wisconsin, and the CEO of Laugh Your Way America. He is the author of Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage® (Simon & Schuster, 2008), the book is based on his phenomenally successful seminar and years of working with thousands of couples. Mark balances his pastoral duties with a rigorous travel schedule. He speaks for churches, civic events, and business meetings and is a much requested speaker for the US Army.
Mark has also been featured on national broadcasts such as Focus on the Family, Life Today and ABC News. His Better Marriage Minute radio program is heard on 250 radio stations nationwide and his daily internet radio talk show, The Mark Gungor Radio Show, debuted in the fall of 2008. He is also the creator of the television series, Love, Marriage, and Stinking Thinking broadcast around the world on various networks including TBN. He is married to Debbie, his high school sweetheart and constant travel companion. The Gungors have been married for over 39 years and have two married children and five grandsons.
When Mark Gungor conducted his first marriage seminar, he did so for one reason—because somebody had to do it, and no one else was reaching the couples in his area. The enthusiastic response he received from his first audience was just the tip of the iceberg. Today, he is one of the most sought-after speakers on marriage and family in the country. Each year thousands of couples attend his Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage® seminars.

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” –Antoine de Saint-Exupery
We believe we are making it better by shielding ourselves from our own pain. This is a fool’s errand, for the pain we refuse to feel and acknowledge doesn’t dissipate from our lacking attention, but rather collects in our heart center with a weightiness that we often cannot name or discern. So fearful are we, of the potential of a broken heart, that we inadvertently refuse to open our hearts at all.
