Great info...long intros
I like the podcasts and the information and advice given. I have to fast forward through 7-10 minutes of introduction, random conversations and sarcasm. Michael also interrupts Amy a lot and sometimes gives me anxiety. The title of one podcast was great pursuing value and there were several times where Michael devalued Amy. I’ll keep listening in hopes it was just a season of intensity and sarcasm.
Thank you for addressing this issued, however we couldn’t hear Amy’s comments very well. Maybe she needs a mic?
Also if you are having a slow day with little questions, you might have some material prepared so we aren’t wasting time listening to your back and forth conversation, comments about your equipment, and/or checking in on others social media sites 👎
We tried listening because we need encouragement and help in marriage.
man trying to get healthy
I really love how real and honest they are, and how excited they are to answer questions and offer help, this is a very helpful podcast, i love it!
Love this show, if you aren’t listening to it, you’re missing out. Great advice, humorous and serious all at once. My fave podcast ever!!!!
A lot of fun with great counsel
Need to listen for awhile but the points are great. Michael & Amy Smalley are funny, enjoyable and immensely helpful - even if he wanders some in his discussions.
Uplifting and motivating
Very easy to listen to. Michael and Amy are very motivational and uplifting and I love the advice.
They are hilarious
Every single episode makes me laugh! And they even have really good advice.
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
Thank you Michael and Amy for being real on the podcast. You offer great and practical advice that is biblical!
Part of the daily routine!
Great style and invaluable content for everyone. The podcast is part of my daily routine unless I catch the live stream!
Real life issues
Marriage the top relationship to glorify God
Entertaining and Applicable
This podcast is great. He’s down to earth and comical but not afraid be vulnerable and dive into the real issues of life and marriage. It’s been a source of encouragement and hope to me in my journey. Thanks Michael!
Just the Content Plz
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
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
‘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.
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!
really not appropriate
How’s this under kids and family when the topic description is referring to oral sex and sec toys!
How’d this even come up as a suggestion for me...my kids have access to my phone why would I want them to see this content...remove please
These two guys know what they’re talking about. They make things interesting and fun, yet serious too. Thank you Michael and Seth for helping me. I do not tell my husband what I have learned and still learn from each podcast, but I have tried to apply what you guys say and hands down it helps every time!! God speaks through you both. Thank you for your free tools!! Blessings are headed your way 😇
Really enjoy the honesty you bring to your interviews and I end up laughing at some point in the show.
Funny and helpful
Not only is this podcast super practical and honest. It is also funny!
Entertaining and informative
Every once in a while the guys get off track but it's always entertaining. And I love the down to earth responses and honesty. They always bring it back to the word.
Running Hard 97
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.
I truly enjoy listening to you both! You guys are humorous and always give awesome advice. Thank you!
Michael and Seth, I am a big fan of your podcasts and listen to each of them at least once. You two complement each other very well and are so funny together. Thank you for all the wise counsel.
Such a helpful resource for marriages and families! You'll find all sorts of topics you can relate to here! Time well spent!!!
Hilarious first of all!! Michael and Seth job well done.. and Amy, goodness could she be any more clear spoken and wise- daring to enter the studio with those 2. What a way to talk about some tough subjects with love and humor! Total talent! Such aweosme advice, insights, wisdom yet practical. So blessed by this podcast and often convicted.
Physical Abuse in Marriage
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.
Helpful tools for a healthier marriage.
Michael, Amy and Seth, Thank you for the 5/17 podcast. It was great stuff...insightful and entertaining. Well done!
Love the wit and personalities on display as Michael and Seth tackle topics in such an authentic and relevant way. As only they can!!
Subscribe now!!! Changed my marriage!!!
This podcast truly has changed my marriage. It is full of insightful advice and really easy to listen to! Michael is hilarious. Seth is great too!
