Episode 23 - Stephanie is delighted to welcome bestselling author, international speaker and ministry founder Pam Farrel to Gospel Spice today! In this very special interview, they explore how to deepen intimacy with God through the study of Scripture by discovering the roots of hope and joy. Then marriage is on the menu--how to develop a lasting relationship!

Pam and her husband Bill have been married for over 40 years and have a thriving marriage ministry to come alongside all of us in this unique journey. Pam shares insights and wisdom tips on how to do just that! Men are like waffles--they compartmentalize and love to think in boxes, while women are like spaghetti--they love to connect everything to everything else!

Two phrases sum up Pam’s approach to life:

"Choosing Joy!" and "One ordinary woman connected to the extra-ordinary God can make difference!"

These sayings captured Pam’s heart because they sum up her experience. “I am the first-born daughter of an alcoholic father with severe rage issues. I often thought our family would make the headlines but for all the wrong reasons. When I was 8 years-old, however, a family friend saw the chaos we were living in and invited us to attend church with her. There I saw what real love looked like.”

Pam Farrel, is an international speaker, prolific author of more than 50 books including bestselling Men Are Like Waffles, Women Are Like Spaghetti (co authored with husband Bill Farrel), 52 Ways to Wow Your Husband,  and bestselling Bible study series: Discovering Joy in Philippians and Discovering Hope in the Psalms: A Creative Bible Study Experience . The Farrels have been happily married for 40 years, are the parents of 3 grown sons, 3 daughter in laws, and grandparents to five. They reside on a Live-Aboard boat slipped in Southern California.  The Farrels are Co-Directors of Love-Wise and welcome people in their audience to join them in "Living Love-Wise".
