The Weekly Podcast Encouraging and Equipping Young Men Around the World to "Stay Sharp" in Their Faith and Relationships

SC 085: Encouragement in Relationships

Show notes:

This week on the podcast, we’ll delve into part of our mission statement here at Sharpening Character! Join Andrew as he takes a look at some types of relationships we have as young men, and where to turn for guidance in handling ourselves in them. We’ll also take glance at Hebrews 12:1, a verse we’ve discussed before but we’re featuring again in our ScriptureFocus segment this week. And if that isn’t enough, we’ve even got some information about the big solar eclipse next week–including some safety tips you won’t want to miss, plus a special edition VersePic for the occasion! All that and more, this week, on the Sharpening Character Podcast!
