The Ideal Man and Woman

Jeff Cavins

What is the ideal man? What is the ideal woman? Rather than offer his opinion, Jeff shares what Scripture has to say about the ideal man and woman. Hopefully, these words from Scripture will help you or someone you know find the one who will help them get to Heaven.

Snippet from the Show
There is no ideal greater than Heaven.
