Love makes the world go around!

It’s been said for centuries, and this Saturday on A Firm Foundation local family councilor from Toledo, Darren Love, joins N. W. Ohio’s most trusted hosts for an in depth discussion about love, both relationship love, and romantic love.

And more and more we talk with adults that come together from relationships that start on the internet even when the person on the other end, doesn’t exist? How do you deal with it all?
