Living On Purpose: Interview with Barry Ham

My guest today is Barry Ham. We recorded this podcast this past September while attending American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC.net) conference in Nashville. The sound isn’t great but the conversation was fantastic.

Many of you that have listened for a while will know Barry joined us back in October 2015 to record, “Getting Your Marriage Unstuck.”  That interview focused on his last book focused on helping couples.  Proior to that he wrote, “God Understands Divorce.”

He and his wife Andee make their home in Colorado Springs, CO. His wife Andee is an educational consultant who has spent over 25 years in as a school educator.
