    I wanted someone to listen to the show with me. He was too
    distracted by Steve sounding so cheesy pedaling Irish bookmarks.
    Steve, is that really necessary? Otherwise, your show is good:)

      This show is wonderful…however I came to find out it’s not for everyone. After the first few times I listened to this show, I was hooked. I could not wait to introduce this show to my wife. After listening to the show one, my wife was like “Meh…” 🙂

      After the second time I got her to listen to this show, she was sort of disgusted and remarked to me, “Why in the world do you want to listen to other peoples problems?”

        Sounds like my mom. I do things to learn. I look at houses when I cannot buy, to learn what I want. Some people just don’t get things. I started listening to New Life in 2008 when I needed to hear it, and felt really betrayed by someone, and it was the perfect time. I wish the commercials were updated.

    to the last caller, I feel for you but you have to get some strength to do something about this issue. If you do not do anything nothing will happen. I’m sure you’ve said no more to your husband several time. Please continue helping yourself and praying and trust me, things will work in your favor. STOP being his door mat – one affair is too many, when you accepted that affair he figured heck, she’ll accept the rest of them…well, it’s a new day. He has to admit that he has a problem and if he wants this marriage to work and show his love for you he’ll do something about it. Please get things started, life is worth living and being happy, not sad all the time at someone else’s cost. Bless you.

    Wow, Matt, your wife and you must have wonderful lives, no drama, no madness, no issues, I could only wish to have such a life. I know I, and others have issues some deeper than most but this show has helped so many people, me included. It’s solely you guys choice to listen, however, this is a show about people needing help and wanting to share their stories and their healings, it’s not for everyone, especially those who have issues hearing other peoples problems. Not sure if you’ll ever tune in again or even check out the comments, if you should I ask that you pray for the callers and for me and I will pray that God continues blessing your family with all the abundance that he’s been blessing you with.
