Guests: Greg Smalley,
When Dr. Greg Smalley got a call from his daughter’s boyfriend, he knew marriage was on the young man’s mind. But instead of letting Caleb off easy, Greg made Caleb meet him for “the talk” at — get this — a marriage conference in another state. Gaah! The weekend was both nerve-wracking and affirming, with plenty of bonding and more than a few awkward moments. The highlight of the trip was the Q&A Greg had planned for Caleb. Here, Greg shares the questions he asked. If you’re a guy, take notes; it’s like a cheat sheet for your future. Ladies, we know you’ll want to hear what Greg has to say, too.
Guests: John Thorington,
