Jay on “Focus on the Family”

All Day


On January 25, 2021, Focus on the Family re-aired the broadcast they called, “Practical Ideas for Loving Your Wife.” Which means 4 – 6 million people aheard 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.”

Listen in here.
