Are you on the brink of a marital breakup? Our guest, a former divorce attorney, wants you to stop and consider: What if you could leave your unhappiness behind instead of your spouse? Laying out the hidden benefits of staying together, she will offer advice on handling difficult emotions, managing unrealistic expectations, and the power of forgiveness.
Today, we start with the news making headlines. We then discuss a very controversial prayer heard recently on Capitol Hill. Then, it all began in 1898 when two traveling businessmen had to share a hotel room in Boscobel, Wisconsin for the night. Together they dreamed of a way they could encourage other believers as they went from city to city. That is how The Gideons International was formed and today, over 2 billion copies of God's Word have been placed and distributed in some 200 countries, territories, and possessions. Join us to hear the rest of their story.
