Truly centered on the Gospel

I’m always game to hear how to do marriage better with my wife. But rarely do I find words that are Gospel-centered. Love the real-ness of this husband-wife duo too. They are hilarious, so be careful if you’re listening to them at the gym. I was in the middle of an unimpressive bench press workout when Ryan popped off a joke. Wrong time to laugh.

So appreciate this podcast!

I have been looking for a Christ-centered marriage podcast for a while, and I’m so glad I found fierce marriage! Ryan and Selena speak the truth in an entertaining way. Give them a listen. You won’t be disappointed!

Long time listener disappointed

I have loved you guys for a long time, enough to over look when you you interviewed someone that said she spoke to God (major red flag). Now that you’ve gotten into speaking about homeschooling (which is great) I’m so disappointed that you have decided not to take a hard stance against government schools and that you think that children can be salt and light there. I wish more people with a platform would fight against government schools.
