Down to earth advise for couples

I have enjoyed listening to each episode. There are some that I have listened to multiple times. I appreciate Rusty and Heather’s compassion for couples who are or have been in crisis. I look forward to listening to the new episodes each week. THANK YOU BOTH!

I knew about the Bryants story and loved the work they were doing, but I didn’t think it was for me. My marriage was seemingly fine. But brokenness entered our marriage and after reaching out a pastor, a few trusted friends, and setting up counseling appointments, this podcast was the next place I turned. Part of our own personal road to redemption is listening to an episode each day, each taking notes, and discussing it together. It’s been so helpful. I would love to get to go to a retreat or do marriage coaching with them.

Excellent

I recently discovered this podcast. Something that really resonated with me is the comment they made on one episode that so many couples are struggling with marriage problems secretly because they feel like they cannot reach out for help or talk about it. I’m grateful they’re willing to talk about something quite personal & difficult that they endured in order to help other couples. It’s definitely worth a listen (or watch on YouTube) for all couples!
