  • Rhett Smith 94: Three Postures on the Forgiveness Journey

  • Several weeks ago I had the opportunity to share with the ReEngage Ministry at Hope Fellowship the topic of forgiveness.

  • Rhett Smith 92: What Are You Holding Onto, That Is Holding You Back?

  • I have shared in previous episodes that the journey through Lent has been one of the most helpful things I have done for my faith.

  • Rhett Smith 82: Seven Books to Transform Your Marriage

  • One of the most common questions I get is about what marriage book I might recommend. That is a tough question in some ways because there are so many books out there, and every person responds to a certain book differently. So it's hard to be too prescriptive on this topic. But I can tell you there are about 7 books that I recommend a lot, and have been recommending for a long time. And the re[...]
