Ep 95: Making Your Spouse a Priority
Dr. Dodd states that, "One of the most common point or cause for conflict/arguments in relationships is, quite simply, when one spouse doesn't feel like their needs are important to their spouse. They complain that they don't feel any real connection to/with their spouse. Too often, it seems that we take better care of our homes, our cars, etc. than we do the needs of our spouse or our marriage." In this episode, Dr. Dodd shares the importance of prioritizing your marriage, your spouse (including in a blended family), the reasons why it often doesn't occur, and suggestions and how to make it a reality.

Ep 94: Being Accountable
A gentleman recently asked, "Dr. Dodd...at what point does personal responsibility kick in?" Another individual stated, "It seems that no one wants to answer to anyone...we are so quick to blame everything or everyone else." In talking to still another individual on this very subject, he said... "If I allow myself to be accountable, that's going to put me in a very vulnerable position. Why should I do that? I'm very private."

In this episode, Dr. Dodd discusses the idea of being accountable...to ourselves (i.e., holding ourselves accountable), accountable to others, and ultimately accountable to God. The importance of being accountable and how to live successfully, as a result. He states, "Accountability is about living in integrity. Your thoughts, words, and actions are consistent with one another and in alignment."

Ep 92: Your Conscience

Ep 92: Your Conscience
"Hey...what's the problem? You have a guilty conscience?" "You know what you did...your conscience bothering you?" "You know what your problem is...you have no conscience at all! Nothing seems to bother you!" "I don't know what the big deal is...my conscience is clear!"

In this episode, Dr. Dodd talks about a subject that has been written about, studied, and discussed for most of recorded history is...the human conscience. From the perspective of religions, various philosophers, social scientists, and psychologists, it has been defined and described in a multitude of different ways.

He states that "the conscience gives us the ability to evaluate our own thoughts and desires, to discern what is right or wrong, and to distinguish between what is good and what is best. When we talk about the conscience, we are often referring to reflection about ourselves as moral persons and about our moral conduct. It is one of the ways God speaks to us."
