This week's podcast is an episode of Stories of Hope where hosts Dan Broyles and Michal Wilson embark on conversations with real people who have real challenges. These stories of hope will draw you closer to God and to the people in your life. Ten years into their marriage with two young children, Chris and Alisa Grace both found themselves unhappy, which served as a wake-up call for deeper emotional and spiritual intimacy to develop. Listen to the full story of how they turned an average marriage into a great marriage.
