Love their podcast
They are so positive and uplifting. I really enjoy listening to them at work.
Real, practical advice
I'm a big fan of Jared and Emily's podcast (and Jared's book). They're easy-going style and practical advice, which comes from life experience, is amazing. I learn something new with every podcast -- something I can apply to my life immediately. And they always make me smile.
These two wonderful person's have such a great way to look at the aspects of the troubles we all deal with in relationships. The insight offered into ones own feelings makes you want to be a better person. They show in a clear and conscise manner how you can feel just how you want too, all you need to do is let yourself. Great stories, great advice, and great Midwesterners, (I am assuming)!
