Can't wait for this!
There is so much crap marriage advice out there that does a lot of damage to how we think we should act in our own marriages. Pithy examples fall apart when real life happens. Based on ep.Zero, I'm optimistic for something that speaks real life when it gets hard.
Powerful, moving, real, honest.
So thankful for this podcast. As many have said before there is so much BS advice that is basically just "try harder" "do better" "Jesus will fix everything" and this is the opposite of that. First two episodes have made me tear up which as a dude, I don't do often. Excited to explore marriage through this show.
*Only negative is the super cheesy sponsor ad. They sound like they think their material will fix things like a magic fairy wand. It's weird to hear bubble gum and rainbows in the middle of painful honest stories.
