Celebrating 125 Episodes and Future Plans — Love and Respect Podcast Ep. 126

In this week’s episode Emerson and Jonathan share that they are taking a sabbatical from the podcast. This leave of absence, so to speak, is occurring in order to produce more in depth resources on marriage, parenting, for businesses, and anywhere in between. They have exciting goals and share them with you in this episode. Also covered is what it has meant to them to produce these 125 episodes.

Finally, they believe the information is not time sensitive and will be useful tomorrow and five years from now. The episodes will remain an archive that you can listen to and share with others. Thank you for joining them these last 2.5 years and they look forward to continuing to provide meaningful, life changing content.

Give Emerson and Jonathan feedback on topics and formats you would like to see in the future or show how the show has impacted you.

Saying “Thanks” Versus Being Grateful – Part I — Love and Respect Podcast Ep. 124

We can say “thanks” but not be grateful. We can mouth words but our hearts are elsewhere. We are fixated on ourselves. We have probably all seen this in ourselves. The Bible says in 2 Timothy 3:2 that people can be “lovers of self… ungrateful.” We can even sing a song of thanks while in a worship service at church but inwardly dwell on the hurt and offense we feel toward someone who wronged us the day before. Join Emerson and Jonathan this week in this two part series which starts with how we can be grateful for the tangible things in our lives.

The Four Seasons of Marriage – Part III — Love and Respect Podcast Ep. 120

Join Emerson and Jonathan for Part III of this three part series. Why is marital paradise lost? Why do couples feel they have left Eden and live in a jungle of sorts?  Since Scripture indicates couples will have trouble in this life why are husbands and wives unprepared?  The answer is simple: they do not anticipate and accept the four seasons.  In one way or another all couples will go through the four seasons.  Those who go through them without defeat do so because they anticipate and accept the process.

After The “Oops” Just Apologize And Make It Right — Love and Respect Podcast Ep. 116

When we miscommunicate, most people readily forgive when we ask them to forgive us. After all, they themselves have misspoken and have little interest in throwing stones. This is especially so when they see us making an honest mistake. What drives people nuts is when they feel that we spoke or wrote something that was designed to hurt or offend them, and we have no intentions of owning up to it, apologizing, and correcting our error. Join Emerson and Jonathan this as they discuss this topic and some examples of what to do if we hurt someone long ago. Also check out a recent publicized example of an apology HERE.

Have You Seen These Crazy Cycles Between Managers and Employees? — Love and Respect Podcast Ep. 115

Men and women need love and respect as human beings in the workplace. Though there are daily demands to fulfill the mission of the organization apart from these emotional attitudes toward each other, that company will perform well when the men and women get on what I call the Crazy Cycle. Without love (care) a woman reacts without respect and without respect a man reacts without love (care). But added to this craziness is the tension between managers and employees. When employees feel unloved (uncared for) they react in ways that feel disrespectful to managers and when managers feel disrespected they react in ways that feel unloving (uncaring) to employees. Join Emerson and Jonathan this week as they discuss this new topic.

In Business, What’s Love and Respect Got to Do With It? — Love and Respect Podcast Ep. 114

There are two elements that are foundational to the long-term success of an organization. As odd as this may sound, they are love and respect. Said negatively and drastically, if there is hostility and contempt, the organization cannot continue to succeed if it has succeeded, at least not significantly. Put it this way, good people leave and customers sense something is wrong. Join Emerson and Jonathan as they discuss this topic of business, which does apply to other environments such as teacher and student, coach and player, etc.

Why Confess Our Unloving and Disrespectful Comments? — Love and Respect Podcast Ep. 113

Why confess our unloving and disrespectful comments? If the roles were reversed, we’d expect another to confess to us. If another was mean to us, blamed us for their unkind reactions, made light of their unkindness since they meant no harm, and justified or denied their personal unresolved issues contributing to their hostilities and contempt toward us, we’d be up in arms. We’d be saying, “Wow, can’t you at least humbly apologize for your part?” Join Emerson and Jonathan this week for this important topic.

Do Some Husbands Live By A Double Standard And Is That Ok Because They Can’t Help It? Part I – Love and Respect Podcast Ep. 107

Do husbands have a double standard? Emerson and Jonathan invite you to join them this week and consider one that they have observed. Some wives hear from their husbands, “I can look at women because God designed me to look at the female figure, but you must not look at men.” While the subject of pornography is an important issue this episode is not about that. Instead, this episode looks at husbands who habitually look at women around them.
