    What We Wish We Knew: Episode 11- Doing The Work

    What We Wish We Knew: Episode 11- Doing The Work

    Before wrapping this series up, Chad and Angela get really practical about a vital part of staying connected, and that is doing forgiveness work often. Its easy to say that we should not harbor offense against our partner, but when they have and sometimes continue to offend us, its easier said than done. Chad and Angela give you tangible examples of how they offend each other on a daily basis, and then show you the work they do to repair and keep their attachment secured. This is the 'work' of relationship, and without it, it is easy to get to a place where you start to believe negative things about the character of your partner. Do the work with them in this episode!

Accessible and relevant

Good conversations start with shared language. This podcast has given us a common language to use when we discuss our marriage - both the simple topics and the more difficult. Couples at any stage in their relationship will benefit from listening together.
