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?

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.



Melissa commented…

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!
