What our culture needs
My husband and I are so thankful to have found Dale and Veronica through Instagram and have been following their podcast and social media’s for a few weeks now. It is so refreshing, inspiring, freeing and convicting to hear their boldness as they preach God’s word without dancing around it’s truths to be relevant. My soul feels like it was aching to be a biblical wife but I’ve been told so often that the Bible doesn’t “really” mean what it says a wife should do and be. The last few weeks God has been freeing me and I have been constantly repenting of the wife I have been. My husband and I have a marriage that is thriving because God’s word is cleansing us through Dale and Veronica’s ministry. We are 25, in our 2nd year of marriage and have a 3 month old baby girl! Our lives have been in chaos for a little while and our marriage has been on a bad trajectory. I’m so thankful for this podcast and their ministry, which has opened our eyes to where we are not following the Lord and has helped us begin to heal and grow in our marriage. I am also SO thankful that I am being re-taught what the Bible says for me to be and do as a wife, before my daughter is old enough to understand my example. Thank you Jesus for these people!
Insightful, helpful podcast
Dale and Veronica have helped my husband and I see things in a different light — one that focuses on following God and His word rather than what is common in today’s culture. We are grateful to have come across this podcast. As recent followers of Jesus, we are finding ways of studying the word, and I love how convicted the Partridges’ are in what they’ve learned. The podcast is deeply rooted in their own experience and research and I appreciate how insightful each episode is. It has opened up deep, meaningful conversations about how we plan on raising our (future) children, and bettered our relationship by providing wholesome insight on what it means to live a Christian life.
Only good if Ezekiel is there putting flesh on the dry bones
Maybe some good stuff here if you can parse it. Some statements are completely delusional for anyone who has been in the American evangelical church at all like,”The church glorifies singleness” or “Women who don’t want to have children need to argue with the Bible,” the posture for marriage here is so limited and erased from historical context of scripture and economics at the time. The Stay Married podcast is much more nuanced and interested in marriage outside of a limited context and belief system which varies in every relationship— even among Christians.
