    Motivational Moment: Failure is a Part of Growth

    Motivational Moment: Failure is a Part of Growth

    Would anyone actually raise their hand and say that they enjoyed failure? If any, it would be a small number for sure because we just don’t like that feeling that comes with failing. But what if failure wasn’t a separate thing from success? What if failure had to happen on the journey to success? 
    In this motivational moment episode, Aaron goes into the idea he got from his experience traveling to Austin Texas for a crypto conference. Though it was an unlikely place to get an idea for relationships, tune into this episode for a new perspective and motivation around any failure you experience in your relationship.

    5 Ways to Create More Fun and Inspiration in Your Marriage and Life

    You have a lot of life to manage. You have your job, getting kids where they need to go, paying bills and managing finances, scheduling trips and events with family, and on it goes. A part of living life is this management of things but sometimes it can make you feel that they are significant, heavy, or even a burden. This energy of course impacts your relationship, how you communicate with each other, and your general attitude toward one another.
    But what we all are innately wired for is play, fun and exploration. Somewhere along the line we forgot that or traded it in for the “adulting. This episode is about 5 ways to bring more fun and inspiration into your day, your life, and your marriage so you can experience more of what you are truly supposed to in your life together as a couple.

A relatable podcast for all ages!

Love this podcast! The Freemans present relatable topics in a clear and concise manner. We have been married for over 30 years, yet we always come away with nuggets of helpful, practical knowledge. Wish we would have been exposed to these tools years ago!

Practical advice with clear takeaway’s

My husband and I have been listening to the Freeman’s for a while. We will listen to an episode then discuss it together. They breakdown common relationship problems and give clear guidance on things to do. There advice is just so much more practical than other marriage podcasts. And I also think they hit other topics not commonly talked about, like intention versus impact.

Listening for 2 yrs now!

I’ve been married 3 years now and The Freeman’s have provided so much valuable advice. I’m truly thankful because their podcasts really helped my husband and I navigate the first years of marriage. From learning our communication styles to learning how to argue in a healthy way has been extremely helpful. Can’t wait to hear all the valuable advice they will share as they enter a new phase in life as parents. There is so much to learn and love how easy they make it to understand! Thank you for supporting us couples and congratulations on baby Skye! 💛
