I wonder how many husbands listen to this because their wife are recommending to listen to it.

lets pray for President Joe, not just those who believe what we believe, and let's not just get stuck on abortion and see trafficking. Realize God sees any sin as a sin, different weights but a sin is a sin. My point is, as we pray for this nation lets remember the leadership of our New president Joe Biden and His team. That's how we start from home.

This was very informative. I'd be interested in an entire podcast series from Christian doctors giving their perspective on various issues.

Is there a place I can get some pro-life merch like tshirts? I know I can get some off Amazon, but I was wondering if I could get some merch and it go directly to the pro-life movement

Thank you so much for all you are doing to support families and the Christian faith! A special thanks for your wisdom and campassion in sharing this story. My family and so many others struggle with the issue of having a special needs child and finding ways for them to be engaged with their community. It was truly uplifting to hear someone who gets it, the challenges, fears, tears, tiny successes, laughter, and blessings. So blessed to have found this podcast!

our lives today are so saturated with things to do that we cannot breathe and we cannot give time to our spouses. We are too busy for our spouses and that is wrong.
