Made With Love is a podcast about real, raw, Christian marriage and what that really looks like! Jon and Megan have been married for 15 years and have 4 children. When they were first thinking about creating this podcast, they wondered if it was alright for a couple in counseling to have a show about marriage. Whether it's "okay" or not, they decided that sharing the hard work in an authentic conversation was an honest and worthwhile choice. A good marriage is MADE, with love.
