Marriage can be hard work at the best of times – imagine how difficult it is when your spouse is struggling with depression. Even talking about mental illness can still be so taboo, especially in our churches. Danielle discovered this when her husband was diagnosed with depression – she wanted to help, but how? It wasn’t easy as she slowly watched him drift away from life, their marriage, and family. Unfortunately mental illness affects so many of us – depression and mental illness is everywhere and we need to know what to do when someone close to us is going through this. That’s when we need each other most. Hear all about this firsthand from Danielle Foisy.
It’s episode 34! Jared Brock is a man of many talents, including growing a beard. So he wrote a book about it – well sort of. His latest book, Bearded Gospel Men, represents his epic quest for manliness and godliness. He profiles men throughout history (who happen to be bearded, probably) who boldly stood for their spiritual convictions. This is what Jared wishes for every man today (and women too). The book will inspire you and our conversation will challenge you and probably make you laugh too. I hope it will make you think differently about God and beards.
