    We’re back after a long break! On this episode, Barrett and Jenifer share a very special conversation that Jenifer had with blogger and inspirational mom Krisi Monsivaiz, who just happens to be one of her best friends.

Listening in will encourage you no matter where you are in your journey, and it will remind you of the importance of walking through life with good friends.

    Why are there so many checklists? On this episode, Barrett and Jenifer tackle part two of what they feel is perhaps is the most important component of building a healthy family life.

Along the way, they discuss some funny ways people characterize marriage on Twitter, the crazy couple who got married at 100 and 102, and how to recover when you treat your spouse terribly….in her dreams.

    On this episode, Barrett and Jenifer take a tongue-in-cheek look at our fascination with lists…and all the people who make promises that if you just do “these things,” your family will be awesome. More importantly, they explore a critical (but often neglected) dimension of the Christian life that makes all the checklists and top 10 lists unnecessary. Along the way, they discuss a recent study on teen sexting, loving your kids (even if you don’t always like them), and why men who take their wives to action movies rarely get any action when the movie is over.
