Encouraging in this most discouraging season

I’m so glad I found this podcast. I appreciate every one who is sharing their marriage testimony. It gives me hope. God is faithful. The spiritual feeding I’m getting from every episode leaves me wanting more. It is so good and I can’t say thank you enough. Highly recommend a listen!
