    Our Holy DESIRE w/ Dr. Curt Thompson, MD

    Our Holy DESIRE w/ Dr. Curt Thompson, MD

    Desire is not the problem. God gave us (not just married couples) desire. It’s how we choose to honor God with this desire that makes all the difference. Today, we talked to Dr. Curt Thompson, MD and he shared some really interesting and profound insights into desire. It was a deep conversation where he really weaved together an understanding of interpersonal neurobiology & a Christian, biblical worldview of what it means to be human. You want to hear this one!

    Healing the Wounds of Fatherlessness w/ John Smithbaker

    Healing the Wounds of Fatherlessness w/ John Smithbaker

    Did you know that 50% of our country’s children, over 25 million kids under 18, are growing up without a father figure in the home? It’s no coincidence that we find ourselves in a culture that’s at war with men — one that says “women don’t need men”. 
    👨‍👩‍👧‍👦
    Today, we talked to John Smithbaker, the author of Man Enough to Forgive, and the founder of Fathers in the Field. In this episode, we discuss how masculinity is a gift from God, the role of a present father, and how to heal the wounds of an absent father.

    ASK Episode: How do I tell my spouse that I was tempted? (From Confession to Connection)

    ASK Episode: How do I tell my spouse that I was tempted? (From Confession to Connection)

    How can I bring up that I struggled with sexual temptation during the day other than, ‘Hey babe, I struggled with sexual temptation/pornography today’?
    🤷‍♂️
    Welcome to another ASK episode, where we answer anonymous questions from YOU, our tribe. This anonymous question was submitted during our VIP Q&A lunch at our EROS conference in Indiana. It’s such a great topic, because people can still continue to struggle with temptation when the secret is out. How can I ask my spouse for accountability without it being… weird?
    🤷‍♀️

    Don't call yourself a Christian if you can’t do this... w/ Rev. Myron Wideman Jr.

    Don't call yourself a Christian if you can’t do this... w/ Rev. Myron Wideman Jr.

    After working with literally thousands of couples in their marriage, we know that this one action item often gets neglected because of pride, or a lack of training in their upbringing. If gone unaddressed, it will erode your marriage and ministry. Today, we had the privilege of speaking with Rev, Myron Wideman Jr. on this topic and we absolutely LOVED what he had to say. So many truth bombs in this episode 🔥

    MONEY is Not a MATH Problem w/ Jade Warshaw

    MONEY is Not a MATH Problem w/ Jade Warshaw

    Studies show that financial conflict can be one of the biggest stressors in a marriage. When spouses aren’t on the same page about spending, budgeting, & debt, it can cause serious resentment within the marriage. This is why we were honored to interview Jade Warshaw from the Ramsey Network. Tune in to hear how she and her husband worked through over $400k of debt by changing their relationship with money.

Phenomenal counsel

If you want practical yet powerful help from a couple that not only experienced tragedy and addiction but held together to make there marriage work than this podcast is for you.

My wife and I have been helped by them and they we’re amazing. Just came back from one of their conferences and it was life changing.
