A resource for your marriage

Sometimes we can get bogged down in the amount of resources that get pushed our way. A new book, a new magazine series, a new blog or vlog, podcast, or youtube channel.  Its no wonder that some of the best resources are the ones that we don’t find with all the web traffic we have to weed through to find exactly what we are looking for.  Moody Publishers has a site called: Start Marriage Right.  It features many of the authors, bloggers, etc. that are marriage experts in their own turf.  So, we would like you know about this great resource.  Let us know what you think.


Need a little blessing in your life?

Dr. John Trent’s The Blessing talks about whether you received a blessing and how to even in the midst of your own pain, how you can receive healing and extend a blessing to your parents, kids or others in your life.  If you have kids there is a version for them as well. A great read on the beach or pool-side or for your next road trip. Let us know what kinds of discussions  come out of your time as a family talking about what it means to receive and give a blessing.

Finishing Well

It is the end of another semester at Moody Theological Seminary here in downtown Chicago, IL.   I (Dr. John Trent, Ph.D.) had the honor of teaching a class on contemporary issues in marriage and family this Spring.  In the next few months we will be featuring some of their work from the class here on our blog.  But for now, praying for these students as they head back into their jobs, internships, practicums or just family life.  A job well done by all.  

MTS Counseling Students join @ChrisFabryLive on the Radio

One of the advantages of having Dr. John Trent, author, speaker and professor at Moody Theological Seminary is the the opportunity to take the classroom to the air, literally.  Four Seminary students joined Dr. Trent this past week to discuss some of the contemporary issues in marriage and family with Chris Fabry on Chris Fabry Live (Moody Radio Chicago).  Click on the following link to hear their discussion: https://www.moodyradio.org/programs/chris-fabry-live/2017/04-2017/2017.04.06-lasting-friendships—contemporary-issues/
