Episode 48: The D Word

I think we have all heard at least one couple that gets into a heated argument with their spouse and one person threatens ‘divorce’. It’s used as a tactic to get one person in line. But how effective is this? Divorce should not be used as punishment. It shouldn’t be used at all. There are some couples who truly have severe problems in their relationship, which if not discussed, and emotional closeness is not restored, their relationship begins to fail. So what are these warning signs? Let’s listen in as we discuss The 4 Horsemen. Research shows that 96% of couples who experience all 4 of these behaviors in their relationship, if they continue, then the threat of divorce, soon becomes reality.

Episode 44: Forgiveness

You’ve been there before. Someone did something that seems unforgivable…or is it? We’ve all been hurt. But in order to move forward, and to even heal, do we need to forgive? Should we forgive? Does forgiveness mean reconciliation? Does forgiving someone absolve them from the wrong that was done? So many questions to ask. I have Dr. Tezonia Morgan a forgiveness expert shares her personal journey and educates our listeners on the subject of forgiveness. She teaches us how to walk through the process but most importantly, learning that the decision to forgive is a choice that benefits you and not the other person.
