30 min. When John and his wife, Hannah, lived in the Detroit area, John was teaching and also talking on a weekly radio program.

The radio program you are about to listen to is a follow-up to that one. As may be imagined, the other one provoked a ton of interest and questions, so a decision was made to interview John and Hannah on the air to talk more about their marriage.

John: “One of the problems is that people see marriage in terms of progress and ambition.”
