You're going to love our guests on today's podcast: Phil and Melody Box. They are an incredible couple who live in Detroit Michigan. They have been married 41 years, have 3 married children and 4 grandkids.
Phil was a pastor for over 25 years, and he and Melody have been partners in ministry since that time through today as they have mentored couples, taught marriage classes and held retreats, and have entertained and trained at various events and meetings. In 2014, their lives took a dramatic turn when Melody was diagnosed with a rare Stage 4 cancer. The prognosis was grim. But it was through that experience, Phil and Melody wanted to use every moment and every experience to lead others to know that God sees, God hears, and God cares. Miraculously in 2015, after 8 rounds of chemotherapy, and to the surprise of her doctors, Melody was given a cancer free diagnosis!
Phil and Melody serve in a full-time ministry called MoGrace Ministries. Phil counsels primarily to men struggling with pornography, he counsels men individually through Zoom, and offers group classes, and purity weekends. Melody speaks to the wives who are struggling with forgiveness and teaches Bible Studies from her book He Can Be Trusted and trains women to build a deep faith in Christ.
They are both published authors, Melody wrote a book about how to survive difficult times called He Can Be Trusted, Discovering God’s Presence in your Darkest Moments. Phil wrote a book called the Couples Prayer Journal, The Power of a Praying Couple. Their website, MoGrace.com is a course-driven website with training for men, marriages and spiritual growth.
