The Patrick Madrid Show: March 11, 2024 – Hour 3

Today’s episode was a powerful journey of struggle, hope, and seeking guidance. We heard from listeners grappling with marital issues, from infidelity to the impact of criminal behavior, and the challenging path towards possible annulment. We also navigated the sensitivity of childhood trauma, reinforcing the importance of support and counseling. Together with the callers, we explored God’s merciful stance on redemption and forgiveness, despite the trials of life.
