Episode 46: Practical Ways to Put the Joy Back into Your Marriage Today–with Marcus Warner and Chris Coursey
Need a sign to know if your marriage is thriving or struggling today? The clues are standing at your own front door:
How do you feel when your spouse walks in at the end of the day?
Are you greeting with a kiss or a cold shoulder?
Do you feel eager to connect and share the events of the day?
Is your spouse the reason you’re excited to come home?
If your stress goes up and your happiness goes down when your spouse comes through the door, chances are you’re suffering from a “joy gap” in your marriage. Today’s guests, Marcus Warner and Chris Coursey, are here with a super-encouraging message to help us grow close and refresh the joy in our relationships.
Episode 45: How to Grow in God When Your Soul is Tired and Life is Hard–with Bill & Kristi Gaultiere
You put your trust in Christ a long time ago. Since then, you’ve spent countless hours in prayer and reading the Bible. You’ve attended church and been faithful to give and serve however you can. You could tell story after story of how God met your needs and helped you along the way. Yet today, God feels distant and out of reach. It seems like your prayers hit the ceiling. Doubt, guilt, and discouragement are making a wreck of your faith. You wonder how to break down the wall and draw close to God again.
Today’s guests, Bill and Kristi Gaultiere, are here to give you hope on your journey of faith. Bill and Kristi have served both in ministry and as counselors for 30 years. They have authored a powerful book titled Journey of the Soul: A Practical Guide to Emotional and Spiritual Health to meet you in whatever stage of faith you’re living right now.

Today’s guest, Gary Thomas, comes with practical insight to help you and your spouse break down walls to build the love life you’ve always hoped for.
