Hole In My Heart Podcast
The Hole in My Heart Audio Podcast explores how the gospel is good news for everyone every day.
Host, teacher, and author, Laurie Krieg, and her husband and licensed-therapist, Matt Krieg, partner up with Producer Steve to engage in challenging topics such as shame, trauma, and anxiety.
We apply a historically-biblical sexual ethic to the topics of marriage, sexuality, and porn-addiction and funnel all those conversations through the hope-filled good news of the gospel.
We laugh (and we cry), but we are always focused on the joyful challenge of walking with Jesus. Will you join us?
