I like this podcast because it reminds me that there are still people who act like it's the 1800s. It's an interesting listen for anyone who wants to see what it's like to be indoctrinated, but I can't reccomend listening to it for actual advice.

This channel has become an anti-abortion activist propaganda for conservative views especially Christian doctrines. I believe in Life being precious but the issue of abortion is more than just having a dogmatic view. We need to have a scientific approach to life and population. There are cases where abortion is valid like cases of sexual abuse, poverty, victims of crime, serious medical and neurological disorders, etc..we must keep open mind in allowing abortion. It is worse to give birth to a child in such cases and destroy his or her right for good quality life. Rampant population also give rise to all kinds of poverty, ignorance, abandoned & orphaned children, crimes, social backwardness. This does not serve good for humanity. There is enough of overpopulation and dumb consciousness humanity on this planet. There should be checks and balances when abortion is absolutely necessary so that we don't misuse it. But to spread one sided view via this channel is not intelligent and does not solve greater problems. I am not following this channel further.

I actually listen to the regular Focus on the Family Brodcast along with this one, but I enjoy the more bite size content they put forward here. Most of it is repurosed, but I have heard some exclusive stuff as well. Good prodcution, well put together. Sometimes can be a bit of an ad, but the info is still great.

I wish all married couples would take the time to pray for their marriage and their spouse. Marriage today seems more like a temporary experiment than a lifelong commitment. I strongly recommend this podcast for married couples as well as singles seeking marriage.
