“Every now and again someone will ask you a really simple question, but it comes at just the right moment or from just the right person and you realize you don’t have a good answer for a question that you would have sworn you had the answer to just 30 seconds before. Well, that happened to me recently with my friend and colleague, Aaron Sironi, when he asked me how I use prayer in marriage counseling. Today, our podcast has the privilege of capturing what kind of thinking Aaron has been doing in marriage counseling for the past couple of years, and why a simple question about prayer is significantly altering the way he helps people in the midst of conflict in marriage.” Host, Alasdair Groves
