    Let's Talk: How Communication is Key to a Healthy Marriage

    My wife Chelsea joins me to continue our series talking about marriage.
    What is the primary cause of divorce? Most problems stem from bad communication.
    We share our experience and advice for a healthy marriage with these four guidelines for communication:
    Agree to be honest with your words (Jas 5:12).
    Make time to talk about your day (1Co 1:10).
    Be careful with tone and body language (Col 4:6; Pro 16:24)
    Listen attentively (Pro 2:2)

    What Does "One Flesh" in Marriage Mean?

    What Does "One Flesh" in Marriage Mean?

    My wife Chelsea joins me to continue our series talking about marriage.
    Genesis 2:24 says God's design for marriage is that the husband and wife become "one flesh."
    We discuss three areas in which husband and wife should be "one flesh":
    "One flesh" in intimacy--no cheating (Mat 5:28; Pro 5:15-18; 31:11; Phi 4:8)
    "One flesh" in goals--no competition (Act 18:26; Eph 5:33; Phi 2:3)
    "One flesh" in struggles--no cowardice (Jas 1:19; 1Pe 3:7)

Diverse Topics- Good production quality

Daniel has done a great job of bringing in diverse topics from economics to theology proper to personality discussions.
I particularly appreciate the production quality and down-to-earth discussions, especially with his sweet wife.
These are podcasts that I will have my older children listen to.
There was one podcast where Daniel mentions transgenderism. So, if your children aren't old enough to understand, just be sure to listen to the podcast first.

thanks Daniel for your comments and podcast! I look forward to your future topics.

Challenging

Daniel has me thinking and examining myself to make sure I’m in the faith. He brings me up before the True and Living God when looking at the Trinity and from there down to my knees when I see myself before a Holy God!

Great information about the Bible, Church History, and recent politics

Both my son and I enjoy listening to these podcasts on Mondays and learning more about subjects such as the trinity, incarnation, etc.
