This week Rachel got her wisdom teeth removed so Jimmy was holding down the fort. Rachel started selling her earrings, we visited the grand opening of a park, and give an update on Jimmy's "vineyard." The main topic is about how well you know your spouse. So we act as the guinea pigs and do a marraige questionnaire to see how well we know each other, we hope you enjoy the results!
Revival House - Faith, Family, Marriage
What is revival and what does it look like at home with your family? Join the Barkley’s as they explore ways to display the heart of the Father at home, stay married forever, and feel alive in their relationship with Jesus all while having a good laugh!
Summer has officially hit and our A/C broke, Rachel is starting multiple new ventures. Have you ever wondered what is meant when people say the Kingdom of God? We look at how Jesus used the term within the narrative of scripture, what his followers would have heard, and what it means for us today in our relationship with God, our spouse and our world.
Church Picnics, 90 Degree weather and Rachel’s fear of Armadillos are all part of the episode this week.
We also get into the main topic where Rachel interviews Diane Slack about “Love and Logic” parenting. If you’re in the thick of parenting or teaching or anything having to do with children this episode will encourage you big time. As Diane shares, you’ll pick up on some incredibly helpful information such as:
*ways to empower your kids to make wise choices
*allowing consequences to be the ‘bad guy’
*one liners to diffuse tense situations and
*ideas to help your kids work through problems on their own
This all fits beautifully into our desire to parent our kids the way God parents us. Enjoy!
This week we’re talking about vulnerability and authenticity. Maybe this is an easy topic for you, but we still agree this is a hard one for us! Why on earth is it so scary to be known? We’re looking at the Apostle Paul, King David and Brene Brown to tackle this topic. We pray you’ll be encouraged and empowered to push past the fear in your own relationships and experience the freedom of being known.
In the midst of busy schedules having a day where we slow down and connect as a family is so important. In this episode we are advocating for sabbath rest during what we call “Family Day”. We will also be giving some helpful ways to make your family day a success!

The Pharisees were birthed in revival yet misrepresented God’s heart to the world around them. If we’re not careful we can do the exact same thing. This week learn some things you never knew about this sect of Judaism and be challenged to love others and prioritize God’s presence.
Jimmy & Rachel reunite after being apart for almost a week and share about decision making in a healthy marriage. Want to feel more unified? Want to know how to be more honest and honorable towards your spouse? Listen up! Also, if you want to sign up for the first ever Revival House LIVE One Day Marriage event head on over to revivalhouse.org/contact and say “put me on the waiting list!”.
What should you do while you’re waiting on God? Should you sit around and do nothing? Should you take matters into your own hands and try to make something happen? This week we look at the life of Jesus, Joseph & David to see both the purpose and potential of our waiting and how to honor God in it all. We also share about our week and drop a little hint about a special announcement we’ll be making next week!
It was a fun filled Easter weekend complete with church, lots of candy, failed attempts at family Easter pictures and Opa’s famous Oster Brot (German for Easter Bread). Then the Holy Spirit hijacked our podcast plans (which He is always welcome to do) and Rachel shares her story of drug rehab, her search for purpose and the day she found Jesus!
