    This week on Dadville we have author, speaker, professor, minister Gary Thomas joining us. Gary has written a bunch of books—like a whole lot—and he discusses working through a "tired" marriage, navigating different seasons of marriage life, and what he's learned from being a parent of adult kids—and why that might be the basis of an upcoming book.

Suzysalmon ,

Love the couples!

Have just adored listening to the couples you’ve been having on. It’s clear y’all are great friends and it’s really fun to hear you laugh and encourage one another.

Mom who loves Dadville

Keep it coming! I love it and have listened from day 1.

Peyton Stokley ,

Could not love this show more

As a frequent mom visitor to Dadville- I just have to say that I could not love this show more. Also- after the Steve Moakler episode I checked …and the Pontiac Coffee House is sadly permanently closed 😂- but the yelp images made the Girl Scout story truly come to life. Thank you for your laughs and wisdom -shared with dads and moms alike!
