What if you had the power to change things? What if YOU could make these relationships better? In this episode, Juli asks author and researcher Shaunti Feldhahn to share the most fascinating thing she learned while surveying thousands of men and women, and how she discovered how kindness is a “superpower” that can change the dynamics of ANY relationship.

Let’s face it: As Christians, we’re kind of afraid to touch. Touch feels unsafe and sexual—even worldly—and we can be led to believe that the more boundaries we put in place, the "better off" we'll all be. Except, well … Jesus touched. And he allowed others to touch him: A prostitute washed his feet and dried it with her hair. He used his hands to rub mud on blind eyes. He invited Thomas to place his fingers in the nail holes in his palms. Is it time to re-think the way we view touch?
