"Though paved with pain and heartache, the seasons I struggled the most have also become the seasons I cherish the most. For in those seasons, I found myself at the feet of a good, good Father, lavished with grace, mercy and hope." - Amanda Voigt
“I never thought I would do something like this.”
Amanda’s journey with infertility. How did it all unravel?
“It’s lonely.” “Your friends get the dream and you’re not.”
“I had to be excited to see my best friend’s baby in the hospital.”
How does it feel when people try to “Christianese” your suffering.
“It’s a blow when you’re already down.”
You just need to sit with someone and try to feel what they are feeling.
Don’t try and make it better or find answers for them.
How did you manage the process of infertility?
Looking to adopt.
Insurance ended up paying for it with Luke’s new job.

Did you ever have that friend in college that you just couldn’t get rid of? Me too, in fact, I’ve been trying to get rid of the guy on my show today for more than 20 years! But now he’s made it onto my podcast, and he’s actually got something very cool he wants to share with you today.
We are talking cars, marriage, and possibly the four most important things you need to maintain in order for your marriage to thrive!
I just received this question and it jumped right off the page at me!
We have just ordered over $400 worth of books, workbooks, cd’s and dvd’s from you and your family……..we are desperate……I just have to ask one question………I have to have an answer to this question before I can get past some issues……….it is this………..
“Is oral sex something that is OK with the Lord, and, is it ok to dress up in a little nurse costume, or such.
I know this sounds so crazy, but I am about to go out of my mind needing to know the answers to this question! We have two boys coming up and I want them to have the best life possible in the Lord………these questions are just not talked about enough!
Thank you for your time and answer. May God richly bless you and all of your family!
MICHAEL: I hate couples who miss out on the joy of sex with each other because they think there are...
What a show today! I get to interview Rhonda Jolliffe, the founder of rhondanp.com. What's so great about the show today? We have one of the most honest and frank conversations about menopause ever! Rhonda has great insight for women who might be experiencing menopause but we also address how menopause impacts a relationship and what to do about it.
Today Seth Johnson is taking over the show. So everything we talk about is something he wanted, and he got.
Intimacy is more than just hanging out with each other or sharing your deepest emotions. It is also important to get to know each other. These questions can help you learn a little bit more about each other's inner child:
“You've talked about taking a timeout when things get too heated. I feel my husband uses this phrase as a way of avoiding the problems we face. Unfortunately, communication in our marriage has become so unpleasant and difficult that timeouts have become a lifestyle and we have virtually no communication. I'm talking like years and years, at least 15. At this point I feel we have no connection and no relationship, along with so many unresolved issues I don't even know where to start. We have been married for 35 yrs. I don't want to give up, but I do not want to live the rest of my life with a hostile stranger. HELP!!!”
Today we take on one of the shortest, yet intense question asked by a listener yet! I’ll just let you read it for yourself, “Is there a walking away point in marriage?” I don’t know...is there? We’ll answer this question on today's show.
“My wife wants a divorce, I do not. She wants the four kids and I am supposed to move out. I want reconciliation, she says ‘No chance, ever!’ What do I do?”
On Saturday Night Live, a character named Stuart Smalley used to say, “I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and dog gone it people like me.” I’m not sure we’ve ever had a better introduction to the show...ever! Today we discuss the benefits of talking to yourself and how it can positively impact your relationships.
