Hey hey! Today’s episode is a must-listen! The cancel culture of the world today makes it tricky to navigate relationships, doesn’t it? Listen in as I chat with Seth and Heather Thompson Day about these issues on the show.

Seth and Heather provide a framework of what the Bible says about showing up for one another—even when we feel like giving up. They also share just how important it is to stop waiting for the “perfect” time to move forward in our lives.

Heather Thompson Day is an Associate Professor of Communication at Andrews University. She is passionate about supporting women and runs an online community called I’m That Wife, which has over two hundred thousand followers.

Heather’s writing has been featured on outlets like TODAY and the National Communication Association. She believes her calling is to stand in the gaps of our churches for young people. She is the author of seven books, including It’s Not Your Turn and Confessions of a Christian Wife.

Seth Day is a graduate student of Educational Psychology. He has been a pastor and campus chaplain. His background in Human Service Counseling and ministry brings an important spiritual component to their most recent book, I’ll See You Tomorrow.

Listen in to hear all about:

  • How communication drives relationships and what it means to be wired to be in relationships with other people.
  • How messages and experiences we have in childhood affect our relationships into adulthood
  • What weak ties are and how we can value them in our lives.

Favorite quotes:

~Our experiences in life, what we go through as children; we are constantly seeking affection. We are going to adapt our coping styles to whatever way helps us get that affection and the unfortunate part is that we carry this to our adult relationships.

~It starts with you! I can only control what I choose to do. The reality is it starts with YOU making the commitment to start living life again

~Narcissists don’t want love, they want adoration.

~Weak ties matter. If we spend all our time saying we don’t have any best friend relationships we will miss the relationships that we have.

~People who are part of a church community are healthier and happier.
