Hey Friend! If you are new here, be sure to start with Episode One. This is not your typical podcast and you aren’t going to want to miss a thing! Jessica, Steve (her gay ex husband) and Matt (her current husband) are sharing their stories of love, marriage, infidelity, divorce, coming out, remarriage and co-parenting to help others know they are not alone. This podcast is for those who are open-minded enough to let go of the religious and social norms we have been taught we should fit into and live a life that feels true and authentic to who they are. Steve, Jessica, and Matt are here to walk through the science of making relationsh!t successful.
Steve and Jessica were happily married for 7 years until Steve came out as being gay which inevitably ended in divorce. Now, Matt and Jessica have been happily married for over 8 years. The crazy part is, Matt, Jessica, and Steve all get along, to the extent that Matt and Steve work together, every dang day… Don’t worry you will get all the details while you listen. Matt, Jessica, and Steve have a relationship that, by most standards, would be considered atypical.
Sharing stories of love, marriage, children, divorce, the struggles of religious norms, homosexuality, and trying to be our best selves, this podcast holds nothing back and shares what most people are scared to talk about.
Listen in as they take you on this journey of learning how to love and accept themselves enough to love and accept others for who they are during this experience called “Life”.

Doing things because someone told us that is what we should do does not motivate us to do what is best for us. Understanding the why behind our decisions is where true joy comes from in life. Today we continue our conversation about doing things we said we would never do... And this week Steve is opening up about some of his biggest ones...
Things I Said I Would Never Do...
You know those things you said you would NEVER do and sometimes even judged others for doing but you do them now?! Yeah, we have a few of those too. We will share some of ours, have a personal coaching session with Steve, and discuss why it is important to recognize when and why we are judging others...
What is something you have always wanted to wear but felt it wasn't socially acceptable? What is your dream career and what is holding you back from going for it? What about your life isn't in alignment with who YOU really want to be? With who you FEEL CALLED to be? Today we are diving into some of these questions for ourselves and what we have done to be more "Us". We hope it will leave you inspired to be more YOU!
Letting Jess Go
I cried as I wrote out the title of this episode. Today we are answering two questions that you all sent in and I will admit, it was a little heavy. To those who are in the thick of it, please know we feel for you. We are here for you. We know this is hard and we are sending you love in all the ways we can.
More Lingerie Please
Who wants more JOY?! I LOVE Joy! Here are some questions we are going to dive into this week:
How do you find joy in your life?
What are ways you used to find joy but don't any more?
What new things have you tried that bring you joy that you didn't think would bring you joy? How do the people in your life impact your joy?
What are things you want more of in your life?! (Listen as Steve get's real uncomfortable with Matt's answer.)
Sometimes You have to Laugh
Today's guest and I have a couple things in common. One being that we love finding joy where we can in life, even when going through hard things. One thing that is different about us is that Lisa Valentine Clark is witty and funny. I have occasional moments of being funny but I am definitely not witty. Lisa is so incredibly witty and funny her life's work centers around this.
Do it! I live all the way in Missouri and I would seriously consider coming to hang out with you guys.
New Addition to Daily Routine…
I stumbled upon this podcast after hearing Jessica as a guest on another podcast where she shared her story/experiences as a stepmother. From Episode 1 I was hooked and the podcast is now what I listen to as I travel to and from work. I love the relationship you all have built with one another and how you share everything in such a candid way .. from the hood to the bad to the ugly. As a stepmother myself, I appreciate hearing how you all approach your situation and co-parent together. Side note - I DIEDDDD laughing when I listed to the episode about the Pepto (a/k/a pesto) that was delivered to Steve when he was sick. As in, I played it three times in a row while sitting at a stoplight and was crying because I was laughing so hard. Pretty sure the trucker beside of me thought I needed medical help by the time the light turned green. Such a great story!
New Listener in Love with the Show
I found this podcast last week and I’ve been obsessed. I’ve been bing-listening trying to get caught up. As a member of The Chirch of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints I’ve been working hard the last couple years to “listen to learn” and to educate myself on topics that I’ve been sheltered from in the past. I love the example you guys show of loving and including, kindness and compassion. I only hope I can be like you as I continue to learn and grow!
