    Rethinking the Household

    Rethinking the Household

    Have you ever given thought to how your "household" is being defined? The direction it's heading? Or the connectedness you feel to one another? In this episode, we talk about the meaning of the word "household" and how it applies to your family.

    We talk about:

    Why it's important to be curious, not intimidated by uncomfortable emotions.
    How to let go of "the chase" and refocus on nurturing your marriage and your kids.
    How to embrace your family's uniqueness.
    How to become a family of creators, not consumers.

So great for marriage enrichment and more

I rarely comment on a podcast but I had to on this one. You both are so refreshing and honest and transparent and my husband and I both are listening and sharing what we’ve learned and we are learning to be transparent with each other. We’ve been married for 23 years and we are in ministry so we Turk on auto pilot too much in our marriage. So I am so glad we came upon this podcast and we are so grateful to you both for sharing your stories and wisdom with all of us!

Interrupting

They are great and have a lot of good information! I find myself excited about the information presented but Christi constantly interrupting hen Josh is speaking to bring up new topics or just to interject something or “open a new loop” is making it hard to continue to listen to these podcasts without frustration. I really hope this can improve so I can continue to enjoy to listen and learn.

Fantastic Listen So Far!!

I can relate with you guys on some of these so far from the ones I’ve listened to. I heard about you from being a guest on My Bridge radio and they have been so helpful. I’m sending my wife a link to your podcast to listen as we’re trying to reconcile our marriage and get us back together to where we need to be as God intended us to be.
