    New life is a great show. I’ve been listening for years. I would like to put in a request that the men doctors allow the women doctors to respond more often to the callers first. As I’ve listened, more recently, it seems like Dr. Jill and Dr. Sherry don’t get to share their advice as often as the men do. I appreciate all the advice, but sometimes the women seem to get to the root of the problems faster, and seem to have an emotional connection with the caller. Thank you.

    Crystal could have been me! I haven’t been attending church either, but not wanting to connect is not why. I would prefer Celebrate Recovery or a small group over church regular church. I think one reason for me is that the people aren’t always that friendly. I went to a friendly church with accepting people where I used to live and I wanted to go and looked forward to it. Feeling accepted has everything to do with it for me. Another thing I have issues with is that the first half hour of church is music, which too loud and not that great. I’ve been to many many concerts over the years, and appreciate good music, I love hearing the sermon, but it is obvious to me when a band covers up quality with loudness. The church where I lived before did not do this. They were very good musicians doing the latest Christian hits, without trying to blast us out.
