Question of the Week

What's the best advice you've ever gotten? Or, what's the worst advice you've ever gotten? Or, what's the most uncomfortable advice you've ever gotten?

As we listened to Jon Acuff giving out life advice on this week's show, it got us thinking about the times we've received advice. So this week we want to ask you three different questions. What's the best advice you've ever gotten? Or, what's the worst advice you've ever gotten? Or, what's the most uncomfortable advice you've ever gotten?

I think the most awkward advise is the kind you get over and over again. Like when the in-laws jump at every opportunity to "encourage" a baby. It's almost like I'm not really married until we produce some kids... I mean seriously... I'm convinced one wouldn't be enough and at this point were a day late and a dollar short on the grand-kids quota.

How about "best advice that I still don't follow"? Because I keep hearing that it would encourage my husband and bless him to start laughing, or at least smiling genuinely at his (stupid) jokes instead of giving him a blank stare or rolling my eyes. But I can't bring myself to do it. And honestly, Jesse and Calvin, if your wives suddenly started laughing at all your jokes, wouldn't you feel more suspicious than blessed? Just sayin'.

Thank you Keke! You are an inspiration to my 5'3'' slow-running self.

At the same time, maybe it keeps your wife from bad-mouthing you to her Mom for fear that Dad will find out. I wish I had that kind of fear in me. I might actually try harder to resolve conflicts with my husband instead of just crying about it to my Mom.

All right it was me. I didn't want my only other post since my embarrassing feedback from 2009 (which was read on the podcast) to be criticism. I assumed that my previous posts would be accessible through my profile but now I see that this is untrue. However I do stand by that criticism, it wasn't a goof. I'm eight months pregnant....can we blame my lack of humor on that? I listened this week though and I still love the podcast!
