    Dating Done Right

    Dating Done Right

    Marshall Segal talks to singles about the purpose of dating. Segal, who admits to having his share of dating regrets before finally meeting and marrying his wife, encourages singles to slow down and thoroughly get to know the person they are interested in. Singles should try and enfold the person into their community of family and friends, and plan activities they can do in a group setting.

    Hopeful or Hopeless?

    Hopeful or Hopeless?

    Marshall Segal, a writer and managing editor for DesiringGod.org, knows that most singles want to get married. But how do they prepare for that day, especially when they're not dating? Segal encourages young women to wait on the Lord and keep their eyes open for men who love godliness. You want a man to love Jesus first and foremost. No one is calling you to be joyful about singleness, but joy can still be found in the presence of Christ.

    Dating With Purpose

    Dating With Purpose

    Author Marshall Segal explains what it means to live and date with purpose. Segal, who is a husband and father now, reflects on his single years and the lessons he learned while pursuing love and marriage. Admittedly, he jumped into the dating game way too early, stayed in relationships way too long, and crossed a few boundaries sexually. Eventually he learned how to do it right. Segal takes a moment to coach parents whose teens are eager to date.

    When My Family Is Toxic

    When My Family Is Toxic

    When the people in your family hurt you the most, what do you do? Gary Thomas, author of "When to Walk Away," explains that if a family member enjoys tearing you down and destroying the relationship, then it may be time to walk away. You can't fix your family of origin, but you do have the perfect opportunity to build a new legacy and a new family. We need to protect our family members from evil, and if that means limiting our time with those who are destructive, even at holidays, then so be it. Don't let a toxic person distract you from what God has called you to do.

So many wonderfully relevant topics from a godly perspective.

Thank you

Just listened to Parenting potholes after seeing Jill Dillard post about it on her Instagram story... the message in this podcast really resonated with me... but what would you say to someone who did not grow up in a family of faith and did not learn the gospel and who is trying to figure it all out now as a 26year old married woman, while also struggling with a rocky parent/adult child relationship? (Or maybe you already have a podcast talking about this?) Thanks in advance! Can’t wait to listen to more!
