Dating & Valentine's Day

In this episode, Pearse and Todd, along with their wives, Taryn and Jenn, discuss expectations surrounding Valentine's Day and dating. Should it be up to the guy to plan and pursue? Are you supposed to "fake it till you make it," as Married Love seems to indicate, even when the date or gift flopped? They also debate--sometimes heatedly--what makes a good date. Todd and Jenn offer some dating hacks for couples with kids, and all four reflect on their unmarried dating days and lessons they learned.

Room to Grow

Do you think of your spouse as a "control freak?" Do you think of yourself as "the athletic one"? In this episode, Pearse, Calvin, and Todd discuss our tendency to pigeonhole ourselves and others. But this can make us feel trapped in those perceived identities. How do we make room to grow in our relationships and, just as important, give others the same opportunity to change?

Love Languages with Calvin

In this episode, we return to the concept of love languages. We ask Calvin, a theologian and trained counselor, how we can use this concept to better our lives. We discus how it can help someone in a relationship, but also single people and widows. We also ask if God has a love language, as well as if love languages can be abused. What's your love language, and how can this help you in your life?
