    Our Hard (but Healed) Story

    Our Hard (but Healed) Story

    In this episode, we will dive into one of the most profound and challenging chapters of our remarkable 26-year relationship. We will discuss how we navigated the tumultuous waters of infidelity and emerged stronger and more connected than ever before. Sharing the inspiring tale is a testament to the power of love, forgiveness, and the profound transformation that can occur when confronting our deepest wounds. The most important part of this conversation will be about how humility and vulnerability made us pliable and susceptible to see and commune with God, Who was with us all along.



    We will recount our experiences, and you will witness a raw and authentic exploration of the human spirit's capacity to endure, forgive, and find solace in unexpected places.
