We share advice that is practical and understandable while speaking from a Christian worldview. Every episode contains research-backed and Bible-based wisdom that will help YOU create a thriving, passionate marriage!

What Our Listeners Are Saying


Information is outstanding

My husband and I recently separated and I’ve been devouring this info to learn more about myself. It’s because of this podcast that I opted for a therapeutic separation instead of divorce. I really enjoy and appreciate the content and production value. As an American I find their Canadian accents endearing. Thanks for a great show!

I just can’t get enough!

Yes, that’s a chorus line from an 80s pop song. And it also may sound like the title of an episode addressing some type of addiction, but in the sense that I mean- well... maybe it actually is my own case of addiction... I might just be addicted to your podcast! So, can you do an episode on that issue? ? But seriously, I do feel like there aren’t enough hours in my day to be able to listen to all of the past episodes, while going back to re-listen and take notes on the countless episodes that seem written for me (or my spouse, or both of us).

I recently became a patron, so I now face another sense of overwhelming goodness- in the wealth of bonus material. I’m provided with so many helpful resources, like a filing cabinet overflowing with essential documents and evidence critical to solving a cold-case mystery (that’s the way my struggling marriage can often seem). Just when I’m ready to throw in the towel on persevering and putting in the hours to “crack the code”, another episode with key insights emerges from the filling cabinet.

Your efforts are clearly led and blessed by God. No doubt, He has used you, and continues to use you to help restore weak and, or failing marriages, as well as to positively impact the lives of individuals struggling with doubt and despair. I’m sure there are other wives like me (or perhaps husbands, too) who listen alone, in hopes that God will help us persevere in endlessly laboring for our marriage (which at times, may mean that we’re carrying this very heavy load uphill all alone).

Still, with God’s faithfulness, His loving right hand holding mine, and the tools that you provide through your podcast “lessons” and the bonus materials, I believe my marriage has a fighting chance. If I can get out of the way and let God lead me (submit to Him as He works on my character through this guidance), He can and will restore to me the joy of my marriage and renew it as one that brings Him glory. This is the hope that your podcast (and God’s Word) gives me!

Thank you both! Lifting up prayers of gratitude for your commitment to your mission!

This is the one you've been looking for!

If you are wanting to bring your marriage in for a slight tune up or would like to fix something a little more major but don't want/afford to go to a counselor then give this podcast a listen & you will be glad you did. Definitely worth the FIVE stars!

Highly recommended by a fellow mental health counselor!

Truly the best marriage podcast I’ve found. I recommend it to my clients and learn so much for myself in my own practice, and for my own marriage.

Research based and heartfelt!

This podcast is one of several I consider as a part of my marriage mastermind group! Caleb brings the research, breaks it into easily digestible bites and Verlynda brings real life to discussions about marriage! I love the playful banter between them and always find something actionable with each episode. Thank you both for what you are doing!! I'll be joining you as a patron soon!

Raw and Authentic teaching

My husband and I just recently started listening to this podcast because our marriage of 30 years hit some rocky roads due to some major family crisis and empty nesting. I can’t say enough how each episode relates and challenges us to do more for us. I’m so very excited to keep going and grow our marriage to greater heights. Thank you.

Keeps on giving

Age 57 and working on 2nd marriage... Great info that only applies to my situations randomly, but i love to listen just to hear people with good communication skills talk about anything. Kind of like if you have a good voice, you could make singing the phone book sound good!

Great podcast on marital issues

This was exactly what I was looking for. The topics are spot on. I’m glad to get research based info, and the show is bite sized enough to keep my husband’s attention. I have to agree that the announcer is just awful and detracts from otherwise normal, non irritating voices. It’s like Winona Ryder trying to fake an overly annunciated British accent with a terrible head cold. It’s really intolerable considering you have to listen to her 3 times each episode. The hosts are great though!
