Is My Family Normal?

22:39 – 

Have you ever thought about the beliefs and behaviors your family had growing up and wondered: Is this normal? All families are different and even quirky, but what if some of these habits are keeping us from having healthy relationships with friends or the person we’re dating? Our panel explores how what we inherit from our families impacts much of our lives as young adults, and counselor Geremy Keeton shows us how to keep the good and dump the bad so we can grow and move forward.

Questions From Your Future Father-in-Law (Part 2)

Guests: Greg Smalley,

25:13 – 

Dr. Greg Smalley had a lot of questions he wanted to ask his future son-in-law Caleb before Caleb proposed to his daughter. We couldn’t fit all twelve into one episode, so here’s part two. This time around Greg and Lisa discuss questions like Would you marry you? and How do you manage conflict? These questions may be aimed primarily at the men, but ladies, you’ll want to listen too. It’s all about being prepared for marriage — and it’s never too early to get started.

Married Friends Growing Distant

5:03 – 

A listener is becoming resentful now that the women she considers close friends are growing distant. Yes, they have husbands and kids, but she’s always been there for them; why can’t they do the same for her? Should she try to save these relationships or seek out new single friends instead? Lisa has some thoughts.
