Most people may not realize how much the little things are really the big things. On our show today, we talk about a little thing called marriage. Whether you’re married or not, there’s something in here for you to learn as we talk with one of America’s foremost marriage experts, Dr. Greg Smalley. You’ll learn why some people quit leading their families and what it takes to be truly happy.

The Smalleys are hosting an event called—the Honoring Marriage 2016 Event—a nationwide initiative led by Focus On The Family this upcoming Valentine’s Day 2016.

We give a shout out to Missouri Grassroots Radio and Restoration of America Radio for hosting our show.
