The Godly Dating 101 Podcast

By Tovares and Safa Grey
A podcast designed to encourage believers to date God's way. Tovares and Safa’s passion is to see couples maintain godly relationships and honor Christ in all of their actions. There are some topics that seem “taboo”, but that’s why believers stay bound in sin. On this podcast we will address everything the Church may be silent on to encourage you all to see what the Bible says.

2. What to do when the person you’re dating doesn’t support your chastity?
Here’s a question we received via Instagram recently and were asked to talk about... so here it is!  I believe as children of God, we shouldn't be unequally yoked with unbelievers (please read 2 Corinthians 6:14-18). However, we can find ourselves in relationships with people that aren't believers. Even worse, some believers may not support your faith in God as they should. What do you do when you are in that scenario? Let's dive into that on this episode!  Remember to subscribe, share and leave a great review! Love you all! If you have any questions you’d like to submit, be sure to DM or email us (this is faster): contact@godlydating101.com
