Rank #2: #293: Secrets of a Lasting Relationship
Dating has changed. A LOT. In the last decade, cohabitation, sex, and sexual experimentation have been touted as the best ways to get to know someone (or yourself). Couples who try to marry these ideas with their Christian faith often end up hurt and confused. Join Juli and author Scott Kedersha for a conversation that will help couples --dating, engaged, and newlywed-- navigate faulty messages about love, and take the next step toward an intimate and fulfilling marriage.

Rank #3: #294: When You Want Sex, But Your Spouse Doesn't
In every marriage, there is typically one partner with a higher sexual drive. And that person is usually trying to convince the other to have more sex! In this episode, Juli and her guest talk about how to move beyond "I have a need, and you have an obligation" to something much more intimate.

Rank #4: #290: True Friendship, or merely Friend-ish?
A sweet friendship refreshes the soul –and it’s better to have a friend nearby than a relative far away (Proverbs 27). So it’s no surprise that we feel hurt when our Christian friend lets us down, or confused when our loyalty isn’t returned. In this episode, Juli and her guest talk about how you can discern the difference between true friendship and relationships that are merely friend-ish.

Rank #5: #287: Does God Want Me to Have Good Self-Esteem?
How do I convince myself and everyone else that I’m worthy of being loved? That may not be what the question sounds like in our minds, but when we measure our worth based on things like accomplishments, appearance, intelligence, education ―even our work in the church—we are going to come up empty. Join us for a conversation about how we can truly come to understand that there is something more profound than what other people think about us.

Rank #6: #285: Loving Without Compromise
Yes, you can love a gay or lesbian friend without trying to change them. Sadly, many in the LGBT+ community feel shamed by Christians simply for wrestling with their sexuality. Join Juli and Dr. Preston Sprinkle for a conversation that will take you one step closer to seeing (and loving) your same-sex attracted friend or transgender neighbor as Christ does.

Rank #7: #291: Will You Trade Your Comfort Food for The Comforter?
Are you a sugar addict? Do you run to the pantry each afternoon to get you through your day? Do you turn to Starbucks for a little stress relief?

Rank #8: #101: Following God's Dream for Your Life
We all dream of things we want to make happen in our lives. But what if we told you that you had to surrender it all; that you have to lay down your desires for you and your loved ones in order to get what’s really best for you (and them)? This conversation is for the woman who wants God’s best, but finds it really hard to let go of the dreams she holds dear. (Isn't that all of us?)

Rank #9: #289: How to Choose Unity (Even When You Disagree)
Juli and her guests discuss their reactions to John MacArthur's recent comments about women teaching the Bible. Join us for a conversation about how unity among followers of Jesus doesn't mean we all agree, it means we choose to show His love to each other despite our disagreements.
Guests: Hannah Nitz & Jannelle Nevels

What do you do when your marriage isn’t what you want it to be, but your spouse won't work on it, no matter how many times you ask, beg or plead? Join Juli and her guests as they talk about how you can live joyously and free from shame even when your marriage is not “successful” according to our traditional Christian ideas.
