Dangerous

Focus on the Family has marriage beliefs that are dangerous to women in abusive marriages.

Impeccable timing

There’s no such thing as “I know everything I need and everything is great”
There is always something to learn, prevent, and grow from.
I’ve made so many mistakes. It is so difficult to get everything right.
With these podcasts anytime I’m going through something I skim through the topics and find exactly what I need . And sometimes I don’t even skim, I’ll just play the most recent and it always convicts me and brings me back to a humble state of mind . It is so easy to become prideful and harm my best friend. May God help us as we learn through biblical principles and through your experiences! Thank you!!!
