Thank you!

Thank you for the laughter and the authenticity you bring to such hard situations in marriage and in life. It helps me feel not alone, but also I’ve had so many needed realization from listening to you both communicate in these episodes! I just listened to the May 16th episode and wow did it hit home for. It helped me see an issue I have in a way that gives me hope in fixing it because it now makes sense. At this point in my life I can’t not express how important this is and how thankful for your podcast. God is truly working through you!
