If you’re looking for a Christian marriage podcast, this is it!

I just can’t say enough about how much I adore this podcast! Caleb and Verlynda bring such compassionate insight to marriage while providing incredibly valuable research-based information. Love is patient, love is kind; love never gives up and is always hopeful - if you’re looking for advice from a friend who truly understands and embodies this truth and will run all the advice they give you through this filter, OYF is it. This is hands-down the best Christian marriage podcast I have been able to find — Caleb and Verlynda, you truly are a blessing to many more people than you know!

You are angels to us. :)

Late 2016 to late 2017, our marriage was a hell. On our third year of our marriage, all our inner mess and baggages surfaced to the point that we have to separate to two countries. Your podcast has been one of my solace during the agonizing months. I binged! I would make my husband listen to your podcast last year and at first he would shut down but slowly he began to really listen. Your straight to the point attention to the problem and solution has helped us communnicate better, understand each other better and love each other again better. This beginning of the year is our breakthru and please know that you helped saved our marriage. Your voices are almost our everyday radio station with Rick Warren lol... And we laugh at your intro all the time! Now, with all the learning that I have learned from you, I have been using it to help other couples that are in distressed in their marriage or relationships. I love that it's not christianese but with sound research backed up that's why it get thru my husbands and mines hard hearts last year. Again, thank you! We are moving to BC this summer and cant wait for our adventure there! And I might get Psychology to head thru counselling maybe in Trinity Western U because of you two! Godbless you and your family! Mabuhay!

Great information, well presented

Very insightful episodes! Great information packaged in a logical way with evidence from studies to back up conclusions.

I recently enjoyed binge listening to a lot of the episodes from the archives and particularly enjoyed the series on finances and debt management. Rather than being inflexible and opposed to debt, as is the stance of many personal finance gurus, Caleb made comments highlighting that debt tolerance can often be different from one person to the next. In the context of married couples, navigating these differences is an important process to maintaining strength in a marriage when facing financial strain, which is one of the number one drivers of divorce.

This podcast is a gift to society. Marriages are so important to family life, and families are important in society.

I’ve been pleased to recommend this podcast to many people since I started listening. I always finish an episode with lots to think about. Thank you both for this work you’re doing!
