Shows Main Idea – Last week I interviewed Dianne Keech about domestic violence and child abuse. After the podcast ended, we continued to talk for another ninety minutes. This podcast is part of our “off the cuff,” behind the scenes conversation, as Dianne shared more of her burden for the church to take a more effective role in helping abused children.
