How do we break the cycle of bad thoughts? In this episode, I talk with Sharon Jaynes, author of Take Hold of the Faith You Long For: Let Go, Move Forward, Live Bold who experienced these very same feelings.
Listen and find practical tips and encouragement for your faith.
What would it be like to be one of the original disciples? To walk with Jesus daily?
If Jesus came to you and said, “Come with me?” what would your answer be? Our view of success would definitely be altered. But how?
Well, Jesus does ask you to come with him daily. Author Suzanne Eller decided to do a Bible study where she went deep into the walks of the disciples and wrote her book Come with Me: Discovering the Beauty of Following Where He Leads to share with us what she learned.

Having trouble with the Husband Project when you’re not in the best place in your marriage? You are not alone.
It’s hard to talk about, but some marriages are difficult and you may be doing the Husband Project Online Bible Study with Proverbs 31 Ministries, but your heart is just not in it.
In this episode, I talk with Fawn Weaver who has interviewed over 110 couples around the world to see what common threads could be found in strong, happy marriages. What she found is surprisingly empowering.
Listen in to hear her tips on how to find hope when there is a marital mismatch or if you feel like you’ve tried everything and you’re stuck.

Fawn Weaver’s TedTalk “The Argument Free Marriage“
Are you married to a non-Christian? Do you have friends that are?
For the Husband Project, I really want women to see God active in their marriages whether they have a pre-believing spouse or a believing spouse.
That is why I am speaking with Dineen Miller and Lynn Donovan who co-wrote the book Winning Him Without Words: 10 Keys to Thriving in Your Spiritually Mismatched Marriage and host the website Spiritually Unequal Marriage. In this episode we will gain wisdom of what we can do for our husbands regardless of whether or not he is a believer and how we can be a better friend to those who are married to non-Christian husbands.
Another great book Dineen and Lynn wrote is Not Alone: Trusting God to Help You Raise Godly Kids in a Spiritually Mismatched Home.
WARNING: NOT FOR LITTLE EARS. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT ADULT CONTENT IN THIS EPISODE
Did you think we would have The Husband Project and NOT talk about sex? Of course not. So I brought in our resident sex-pert, Sheila Wray Gregoire, to share her wisdom.
As the author of the book The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex: (And You Thought Bad Girls Have All the Fun) and creator of the website To Love, Honor and Vacuum, Sheila has done the research and can answer the most commonly asked questions that I hear (and all the others that I DON’T hear.)
So, put the earbuds in to listen if the kids are around because we are about to have some serious girl talk!
Not all marriages are “created” equal. Sometimes circumstances, situations, unexpected turns in life and things both in and out of our own control can make our marriages less than ideal.
In this episode, I speak with Nicki Koziarz from Proverbs 31 Ministries, who even admits that the project had its challenges, but as the author of 5 Habits of a Woman Who Doesn’t Quit, Nicki knows the key to getting past her feelings to the reward of reaping what she sows. Both Nicki and I have gone through quite a bit in our marriages and we know the beauty of never quitting. So if you aren’t sure you even WANT to do The Husband Project Online Bible Study, please listen in for some encouragement.
Do you realize the power you have as a wife to change the way your husband walks through this world? How much care and confidence you can give him?
Intimacy is much more than a physical act in your relationship with your husband. For him, it is also emotional.
As we prepare for Proverbs 31 Ministries Online Bible Study of The Husband Project, Erin and I talk with the author of Through a Man’s Eyes: Helping Women Understand the Visual Nature of Men, Shaunti Feldhahn, in order to better understand how men’s brains are wired for intimacy. When we know what is important to men and why, it helps us to better understand how we can best help them to make a stronger marriage.
