Being the ‘Very Best Version’ for Your Spouse
Most “high school sweethearts” break up and go their separate ways before high school is even over with. Chris and Carla Hines, though, have kept their relationship going for going on 36 years—nearly three decades of that as a married couple. It hasn’t always been easy, and both Chris and Carla admit they hadn’t prepared themselves to be the “very best version” of themselves for each other at the time they got married. But by re-centering their relationship with God as the highest priority, and learning to live in the moment, they’ve made their marriage last. Chris and Carla talk with Nate Dewberry this week about the common mistakes of young love, their new “season” as grandparents and empty-nesters, and their own ministry, Marriage in Focus.Visit The Redeemed's website for downloadable discussion question sets, show notes, inspirational articles, more resources, or to share your testimony.Join our Exclusive Newsletter: Signup today and be the first to get notified on upcoming podcasts and new resources!The Redeemed is an organization giving men from all backgrounds a supportive, judgment-free environment, grounded in Christian love without demanding participation in any faith tradition, where they can open up about their challenges, worries, and failures—and celebrate their triumphs over those struggles.

Making a Military Marriage Work

Making a Military Marriage Work
Life in the military is never easy, but there are entirely new challenges when you have to balance your service obligations with your responsibilities as a spouse and parents. This week we bring you conversations with two couples—Jim and Tabitha Pooler and Russ and Cindy Leaphart—about some specific challenges they've faced and how they persevered. For the Leapharts, it was having to help their children adjust to frequent moves and "re-orienting" when Army work started cutting into family responsibilities; for the Poolers, it was coping with the trauma of multiple miscarriages while Tabitha and Jim were on opposite sides of the world. Through their stories you'll learn lessons on open and honest communication, the importance of thorough planning, and how to keep the stress of military life from overwhelming an otherwise happy marriage.Visit The Redeemed's website for downloadable discussion question sets, show notes, inspirational articles, more resources, or to share your testimony.Join our Exclusive Newsletter: Signup today and be the first to get notified on upcoming podcasts and new resources!The Redeemed is an organization giving men from all backgrounds a supportive, judgment-free environment, grounded in Christian love without demanding participation in any faith tradition, where they can open up about their challenges, worries, and failures—and celebrate their triumphs over those struggles.

God’s Still Working On Me
The past few years have been eventful ones, to say the least, for Sammy Cosa. Right before the COVID pandemic hit, he left a business partnership that had turned into an “unethical” environment and moved with his wife and three children to Idaho. Two years later, he and his wife came close to losing their fourth child. Through it all, though, he says he’s been reminded of the incredible strength and reassurance God has to offer all of us. This week Sammy talks with Redeemed director Nate Dewberry about what he’s learned from the tumultuous events in his life and the important lessons he’s learned from them—as well as the lessons he’s learned from the guests on his own podcast, “Created to Lead.”Visit The Redeemed's website for downloadable discussion question sets, show notes, inspirational articles, more resources, or to share your testimony.Join our Exclusive Newsletter: Signup today and be the first to get notified on upcoming podcasts and new resources!The Redeemed is an organization giving men from all backgrounds a supportive, judgment-free environment, grounded in Christian love without demanding participation in any faith tradition, where they can open up about their challenges, worries, and failures—and celebrate their triumphs over those struggles.

You Can’t Heal from What You Keep Hidden
Shortly before Christmas, you heard a special holiday message from Jordan Thome, a West Point grad who works with the men’s ministry at his church in Cincinnati. In this week’s podcast, Nate Dewberry circles back with Jordan to talk about his own faith upbringing and the times he fell short of truly living for God, as well as his current life and how he lives out his faith as a husband, father, and employee. Jordan also discusses his work with his church’s men’s ministry and the biggest problem he sees there—isolation. When men don’t have an outlet for deep conversations about their struggles or anxieties, he says, they can’t get free of them. It’s time for men to step up and get involved, both in their churches and in the lives of friends who need support and guidance.Visit The Redeemed's website for downloadable discussion question sets, show notes, inspirational articles, more resources, or to share your testimony.Join our Exclusive Newsletter: Signup today and be the first to get notified on upcoming podcasts and new resources!The Redeemed is an organization giving men from all backgrounds a supportive, judgment-free environment, grounded in Christian love without demanding participation in any faith tradition, where they can open up about their challenges, worries, and failures—and celebrate their triumphs over those struggles.

We Do Hard Things Every Day
The stops on Thomas Cox’s physical fitness journey include four years as a quarterback for the UAB Blazers, seven as a college football coach, and the creation of both a health-oriented meal delivery service and a successful catering company. One of the biggest keys to his success, he says—in business, fitness, and life—is being willing to do hard things. “When hard tasks come up that are unknown,” he explains, “I want to go back to the hard things that I’ve done and say, ‘I did that, I know I can do this.’” In this week’s podcast with Nate Dewberry, Thomas talks about the challenges and joys of being a businessman, what he’s learned as a husband and father, and the times when men need to be a little selfish to keep themselves improving. He even shares some simple but profound tips on how men can start feeling healthier almost right away.Visit The Redeemed's website for downloadable discussion question sets, show notes, inspirational articles, more resources, or to share your testimony.Join our Exclusive Newsletter: Signup today and be the first to get notified on upcoming podcasts and new resources!The Redeemed is an organization giving men from all backgrounds a supportive, judgment-free environment, grounded in Christian love without demanding participation in any faith tradition, where they can open up about their challenges, worries, and failures—and celebrate their triumphs over those struggles.

Staying Fit—in Both Body and Spirit

Staying Fit—in Both Body and Spirit
An interest in health and fitness that Brannen Dorman developed as a young kid eventually took him to Wheaton College, where he was a fullback on the football team; to coaching at schools in Florida; and now to Training Think Tank in Alpharetta, Georgia, where he helps athletes and others set fitness performance goals and plan how to achieve them. Though the world of fitness is “not a Christ-centric space,” Brannen has still found openings to talk about his faith, particularly with athletes who find themselves disillusioned by the win-at-all-costs attitude prevalent in sports—or just by modern life in general. Brannen talks with Paul Amos about the intersection between faith and fitness, as well as raising a family of faith, in this week’s podcast.Visit The Redeemed's website for downloadable discussion question sets, show notes, inspirational articles, more resources, or to share your testimony.Join our Exclusive Newsletter: Signup today and be the first to get notified on upcoming podcasts and new resources!The Redeemed is an organization giving men from all backgrounds a supportive, judgment-free environment, grounded in Christian love without demanding participation in any faith tradition, where they can open up about their challenges, worries, and failures—and celebrate their triumphs over those struggles.
