I have been listening for about a month now. I listen while I get my run in. I find these podcasts to have such good practical information. They are a good blend of humor and seriousness. I am sure if people see me as I am running they are curious. I am either laughing out loud or moved to tears. Blessings to you! -MG

New Format

by Just the Content Plz on
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

I had been a loyal listener for a couple of years. That was until the irregular schedule from South Africa and now the new daily format with Mr and Mrs S. The show has developed a chit-chatty element. I tried jumping past but missed content and eventually just deleted the shows. One show had about 8 mins in a 20 min show of the banter, right at the start.

Really appreciate this podcast ministry

by SchoolMom16 on
Rating: ★★★★★

I SO appreciate this podcast ministry and the plain spoken way that it is brought. I’m also thankful for you not being afraid of tackling those hard/taboo subjects that so many of us have questions, but not the courage to ask, because we were brought up to think that sex (even with our spouse) is your “wifely duty” &/or dirty and not to be talked about!I also really enjoyed your 28 days with 28 Statements from Jesus!

Councilors focused on making disciples is the answer

by Bdog10 on
Rating: ★★★★★

‘Sayings of Jesus’ I think #23 ... where it was mentioned that Counciling’s biggest focus should be on making disciples during counciling and putting each individual focus on Jesus will naturally lead both together at the feet of Jesus. Makes all kinds of sense for Christian counciling to do this.

Proud mother!

This review is a little biased, because I’m Michael’s mom. But I’m proud of how he has carried on his dad’s legacy and the great advice he gives!

Thank you Michael and Seth for what you do. I just started the 7 week Reignite class at church. I'm glad I found the podcasts so I can listen to and gain the advice you two give. I have an 1 1/2 hour commute from Spring to Bryan/College Station so I have been binge listening and have been very uplifted for the past few days. Your show has been refreshing and entertaining, and I'm looking forward to seeing the positive growth in my marriage and parenthood.

Thank you!

Physical Abuse in Marriage

by N Pick on
Rating: ★★★★☆

Michael; I just listened to the podcast on Abusive Relationships. I found it very interesting that you feel that emotional abuse is usually worse than physical stating that physical wounds can heal easier than emotional. I would think that there is a lot of emotional abuse to deal with and along with the physical abuse as the memory will be there forever just like in emotional abuse. I just don't see how emotional abuse can be any worse after someone has been threatened with acts of violence that are close to death? I, fortunately, am not in either of these situations but was listening to this Podcast knowing of a couple in a physical & emotionally abusive marriage. I have conversations from time to time with the wife's Mother and we discuss her daughter's situation. I get so upset knowing how long this young woman has put up with this situation and yet does nothing... feeling fearfully trapped, hoping for miraculous change with unreal expectations for this change without professional help, inappropriate allegiance to her husband, and/or lack of money to get professional help. All observations on my part. Thanks.

Jesus satisfies!

by Rncastrova on
Rating: ★★★★★

We were in a hell of a marriage our first six years. Heard tons of bad advice from well meaning people... Until finally someone loving told us Jesus was the only one who would satisfy the holes in our life. Now in a healthy marriage at year 9 it's so refreshing to hear this foundation in the Smalley teachings!!

Love It!
