Can Marriage Be Simple?

Friday, March 13th, 2009

In this episode, we decided to talk about a subject that is very close to both of our hearts – marriage.  We share some thoughts about how we approach our marriage, with a desire to show others that the marriage relationship does not need to be a complicated one.

So much conventional wisdom (even teaching from Christian leaders) focuses on the idea that relationships, especially in marriage, are hard and complicated.  We question such teaching and offer our own simple perspective.

Sid, Society, & Sundry Subjects

Wednesday, March 4th, 2009

After taking a week off, we’re back to follow up on our last episode.  Listener Sid concluded his comment on the last episode with a question about the effects on society as a whole when people pull their children out of public school to homeschool.

In this episode, we start by responding to Sid’s thoughts, and then we meander through some other thoughts related to that.

Simplicity in Education

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

After a couple of introductory episodes, we start to discuss more details about specific areas in this episode. When it comes to education, many may not realize that there are alternatives. Despite its controversial nature in some circles, homeschooling is a completely legal alternative to public schooling. In this episode, we discuss some of the reasons behind our decision to homeschool (our reasons may not be what you expected!), and why we feel that it has simplified our lives in some ways.

In this episode, we discuss some of our thoughts regarding our own motivations in these areas. We also talk about some other things that might motivate people to change their thinking, and not all of those motivations are healthy.
