What Our Listeners Are Saying


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.

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!

So Helpful

I'm going through trauma now from affair discovery - listening to your podcasts helps me understand! What he did is wrong no matter what but I'm glad I can learn more of the why.

Review from an anonymous listener on an amazing podcast

Caleb and Verlynda, The practical advice you give makes working these concepts into marriage very natural. Your podcast is a greater reminder that marriage takes work, but that it is worth the effort. Thank you for helping listeners keep perspective through potentially challenging times. You are inspiring.

Great information, well presented

Very insightful episodes! Great information packaged in a logical way with evidence from studies to back up conclusions.

I recently enjoyed binge listening to a lot of the episodes from the archives and particularly enjoyed the series on finances and debt management. Rather than being inflexible and opposed to debt, as is the stance of many personal finance gurus, Caleb made comments highlighting that debt tolerance can often be different from one person to the next. In the context of married couples, navigating these differences is an important process to maintaining strength in a marriage when facing financial strain, which is one of the number one drivers of divorce.

This podcast is a gift to society. Marriages are so important to family life, and families are important in society.

I’ve been pleased to recommend this podcast to many people since I started listening. I always finish an episode with lots to think about. Thank you both for this work you’re doing!

Great podcast!!!

Thank you so much for all the insight! I started listening to your podcast and shared it with my husband who is al caught up with your show now. We love your podcast! You speak on so many topics that are very needed for marriages today. Thank you for all the help!!!!

Very insightful series

I recently started listening to your podcast after realizing that my marriage was not in a great place after only 4 years married. We have been together for six years now and over time I have come to realize that I feel more and more I do not know my spouse at all. Seeking advice on how to improve my relationship I came across your podcast. I have listened to many episodes and in each and every one I get great advice and can relate aspects of the show to my own relationship. I often send my husband the same podcast by sharing it via text message so that he can listen as well. The recent shows on cognitive bias were fabulous and I suffer from mood and confirmation bias. I felt like you were giving examples of me. I listen to your series on my days off and while I am getting dressed in the morning for work. I live apart from my husband due to work and only see him every three months so working on myself while living apart I hope helps when I return home and we live together again in 2020. Thank you again for what you are doing and keep up the great research to help those of us that seek research based advice from experts like yourself. Respectfully, Karie D. Montana, USA

Solid Marital Advice and Help

My husband and I have had a tumultuous marriage from the start with terrible family dynamics and our own strong personalities butting heads. Over the years we withdrew from each other, essentially roommates, but stayed together for the sake of the children. We created a lot of hurt and trauma over the years but despite all odds and God’s grace, we are celebrating our 15th anniversary this year. Your podcast has shed so much light on our ourselves, our marriage and provided solid advice on life and overcoming issues. We are actively working to fully restore and renew our marriage. Thank you for providing us hope for a better and stronger marriage! We’re on our way there!


Grateful for Hope

Sound teaching and advice

Thank you so much for these podcasts! I am a runner and listen to them while running alone. I love them and they have been incredibly helpful for my marriage as well as others because I always try to share certain ones with friends that are going thru those particular 'things.' 🙂 Thanks again!
