DUDE PERFECT Star Shares Christ’s Impact on Marriage: ‘God is Refining Us’

By Movieguide® Contributor 

In a new installment of the WHITE CHAIR FILM SERIES, Tyler and Bethany Toney discuss how putting Christ at the center of their lives changed their marriage. 

“He’s just a whole new person,” Bethany said of her husband. “Every decision he makes now is a prayerful one. He’s leading our family, talking to our kids about Christ, and just little things that make me go, ‘Okay, this is worth the fight.’”

Tyler agreed, saying that he and the rest of the DUDE PERFECT crew now prioritize family over work. He then shared that God called him to share the gospel in his videos and other work with DUDE PERFECT. 

“He’s been sharing the gospel at every single show for the last two DUDE PERFECT tours,” Bethany said. “This was the first thing that he’s done publicly that shows his faith that shows God is first in his life now.”

Tyler shared that publicly sharing his faith was scary at first but ultimately became very important to him.

“[After the first show] I got off stage and I just broke down crying because it was just that overwhelming sense of ‘This is what you’re supposed to be doing.’”

Their focus on Christ carries over into their family life as well.

“We make decisions with Christ in mind,” Bethany emphasized. “We’ve come out of the other side of a really dark season…now when we struggle, we have that hope in Christ. We know that it’s worth it because God is refining us into the people that He wants us to be through this marriage.”

Tyler concluded, “At the end of the day, we’re always going to have our faith.”

Movieguide® previously reported on the Toneys’ videos discussing their marriage and family:

DUDE PERFECT’s Tyler Toney and his wife Bethany recently opened up about their relationship, their journey to parenthood, and how faith has played a role in their lives. 

Tyler and Bethany were friends for years after meeting on a beach trip with their church, and ended up tying the knot in 2011. The popularity of DUDE PERFECT’s videos led Tyler to quit his job, something Bethany was initially nervous about. However, after seeing how successful her husband was doing something he was passionate about, Bethany decided to pursue her own dreams as a special education aide. 

“We were both so fulfilled with what we were doing,” Bethany said. “[Tyler’s] success really took off at a time when I felt like God was calling us to start a family.”
