Take your Vitamins!

If you care about your health and take your vitamins, this show needs to be part of your “daily’s” for your mental and emotional health! I stumbled across the Studley’s when I began individual counseling needing something extra than my weekly session. This remains my top listened to show and I cannot begin to express the positive impact it has had in my life and my marriage. The messages/topics seem to come when I need them most and it’s changed my interactions with my wife, children, and others for the better. It’s also incredible how the content leaves a mark in my mind which has encouraged positive habits that have become subliminal in nature. For example, their 100 days of Q&A. I began expressing my gratitude to my wife and didn’t notice at first what inspired it, but realized a couple weeks later that it was Seth and Melanie in the show. It led to her reciprocating the same and the connection between us has become more meaningful! Thank you Seth & Melanie!!

A Huge Blessing

My wife and I have been struggling for years and we can’t seem to get past certain issues. We have been to some pretty dark places mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. We have all the “tools” from counseling, but we have always felt like we are the only ones who struggle this badly. We discovered this podcast about a year ago, and it has been a blessing ever since. We will have some crazy arguments or read something in scripture or a book about marriage and somehow AoU will post an episode the same day or the next day about that same topic describing it in a way that we can relate to directly.

Case in point: spiritual warfare. We discovered a book by Tim Muehlhoff on the topic and began reading it. Just as the book started to sound a lot like our marriage, Melanie posted the first Spiritual Warfare episode and shared what she and Seth were going through. I cannot begin to describe what a blessing and encouragement those two episodes were to our marriage. Between Dr. Muehlhoff’s book and the AoU episodes, we have begun developing healthier habits to properly guard our marriage against the plans of Satan, including being more disciplined in prayer and setting prayer alarms. If your marriage is not in the best place and you are looking for hope, know that Seth and Melanie get it. I pray that God will continue to use their ministry to bless your marriage as He has ours. There is hope in Christ and this couple is a testimony to that hope.

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21.
