  1. The show for today 7/24/14, took me down memory lane, I can relate to Susan, as i felt clingy to my previous relationship, since I called it off, I’m happy. I didn’t need him, i thought i did. Phil, he reminded me of me and ex. husband, i was so hurt that things didn’t go the way i hoped and the family was not the one i wanted from day one. My Cinderella story was just a fairy tale, it was nothing he could do about it and he would become frustrated, he really loved me, I really messed things up, which brings me to how i can relate to Phil, i had an affair and i associated with people who encouraged divorce/ moving on, the ones that hurt more were my ex. husband and kids. i really wish i could have seen things then but in a way i guess i can say its true what you advice and i really don’t encourage anyone to Divorce. There is always a solution if both parties are willing to work things out and allow GOD to take control of their lives/relationships. God was not part of mine. :( I really feel bad for my ex but never had a chance to really sit down and talk/ apologize. I hope to soon. BTW we have a good relationship despite of what happened between us. I really care for him.

  2. I LOVED how you worked with Susan. Thank you Steve for being a safe man and a loving brother to so many who need it.

    Bless you three for loving on the caller.
