This is how I will always remember my childhood pastor, Glen D. Cole:

Arms open wide – loving every person who came his way

Eyes sparkling – full of vision, purpose, and clarity

Passionately preaching – delivering uncompromising messages from God’s Word

Pastor Cole died unexpectedly on Valentines Day.  I was blessed to have interviewed him just months before his death about his amazing marriage of 58 years.  He and his wife Mary Ann have remained honeymooners after all this time, and I wanted to find out their secret!  His wonderful insights are found in my book 31 Days to a Happy Husband (summer 2012).

But before then, you can listen to the interview here on my podcast.  Our culture needs a sound voice like Pastor Cole’s about the real priorities of married life.  We also need to know how to make marriage fun.  It’s not supposed to be a drudgery!

Pastor Cole knew how to create fun moments all along the way.  Like the time he took Mary Ann to the Eiffel Tower to celebrate their 58th wedding anniversary.  Isn’t it amazing that God had that all planned out – to make such a lifetime memory – before Pastor Cole’s homegoing to heaven?

If you want to enjoy your married life and head towards to Eiffel Tower to celebrate your 20th, 30th, 40th or 50th anniversary, listen to Pastor Cole’s wisdom here. 

Let’s all have something wonderful to dream about always in front of us…and live life to the fullest for God’s glory as Pastor Cole did.
