    Jay on “Focus on the Family”

    All Day


    On January 25, 2021, Focus on the Family re-aired a broadcast they called, “Practical Ideas for Loving Your Wife.” Which means 4 – 6 million people heard Jim, John, and me challenge men to be the kind of husbands God has called them to be. We may have also presented ideas on how to get a few extra kisses along the way.  The interview was based on my book “52 Things Wives Need from Their Husbands.”  You can listen here.
