Evidence-Based Teaching

Tired of stereotypes and cliches. Then listen to Bare Marriage! Sheila actually does research and applies it to her teaching on love and marriage.

Love it at first….

Loved the first season and the book but now the constant attacks on different authors have grown tiresome. More educating less attacking would make for a better and more uplifting podcast. Sheila seems to lean liberal and is very silent on current issues involving women such as LGBQ and abortion. Her silence is deafening. But then many other Christian authors are silent as well. Truly sad.

Great Information

I recently started listening to this podcast and started back at the beginning, listening to current episodes as they come. I appreciate the evidence-based information and debunking “Christian “ teachings on sex in marriage. I wish the podcast had been around 40 years ago when I was first married- things would have been and would be so much better. Thanks for your service.
