    Christians believe marriage is a covenant between a man and woman before God for life, what do we do then when we find ourselves in a spiritually or emotionally abusive relationship? How do we know the difference between normal marital problems and emotional or spiritual abuse? Who do we turn to?

Indispensable tool for Christian parents

Thoroughly informative and outrageously accessible. If you have serious intention to raise your children in the “fear and admonition of the Lord”, this podcast will equip you in ways you may not have even realized were necessary. Jonathan and Kathleen understand the faith challenges faced by both parents and children in this age and are on the offense here - equipping this generation of Christian parents to raise the next generation of faithful disciples of the risen Lord!

Pastor John H. ,

Honest and helpful

Great discussion by solid people.
