    Keep the Romance in Your Marriage

    in Current Events

    Research shows that couples who spend time together are happiest. Those who sweat together, engage in church activities together, or volunteer have a higher chance of staying together long-term. But today, many couples are little more than roommates raising kids, paying bills, and occasionally coming together for sex or common activities.


    Yet According to Grace Fox, the author of the little booklet One-Minute Romance for Couples, the average couple spends no more than one minute per day together in meaningful conversation. In her new booklet, Fox provides dozens of simple anecdotes, questions and quotes designed to help couples in engage in serious conversation. She will share a few of those with you as she chats with Jeannie and Maxine on The River today.

    About Brain Pickings


    Brain Pickings is a cross-disciplinary LEGO treasure chest, full of pieces spanning art, science, psychology, design, philosophy, history, politics, anthropology, and more; pieces that enrich our mental pool of resources and empower combinatorial ideas that are stronger, smarter, richer, deeper and more impactful. Above all, it’s about how these different disciplines illuminate one another to glean some insight, directly or indirectly, into that grand question of how to live, and how to live well.

    A.J. Swoboda: Theologian

    in Current Events

    Theologian, pastor and author A. J. Swoboda grew up pro-choice, pluralist, tolerant, suspicious of any kind of exclusivist, conservative ideology. But then something unexpected happened that upended his world view. He says, “Church was a foreign land. For me God was nice, thoughtful, non-judgmental and progressive. God was probably a Democrat. That’s the image I had of what God was most likely like.”


    What was that surprising event and how did it change his entire life? On Monday, Maxine and Jeannie find out the answer from A.J. when they interview him about his second book A Glorious Dark: Finding Hope in the Tension between Belief and Experience. You won’t want to miss this!
