Great Podcast for anyone!!

Whether you are married or not this podcast is great for you to listen to. You’ll learn valuable communication skills that will enhance any relationship you are in.

Katie Turnil ,

Thank you!

I came across this podcast when I decided I didn’t want to listen to music anymore. As a Christian who is married I search up intentional christian marriages and this was the first one that caught my attention. It has been a blessing in my life. These topics even if you aren’t currently married have been super relatable, especially in my life stage. They keep it short and sweet and to the point and are super real. Its easy to listen to and they captivate you! I recommend starting for their fist episode and working your way to their current podcast.

Thank you for doing this podcast!

Little-i. ,

This is awesome

So grateful for the real convos, vulnerability and wisdom coming from this show. Definitely tune in, even if you’re not a Christian!
