Keep Hope Alive!!

First time here today, and I thoroughly enjoyed. After listening, I couldn't wait to come and share with my wife. It opened up some new ideas for our marriage and just a new found hope. It takes work, and this is just the right motivation to stay on track.

Hollis Divorce - Helping us compartmentalize

I found this great podcast by chance when a prior podcast mentioned the Hollis divorce. I definitely drank the Kool-Aid along with Laura and many other Hollis fans...so much so that I attended a business conference with the Hollis Co last November while I knew I would likely learn little just because of their social media hype. I cracked up today when Laura said she had stopped working out but was doing all the regular personal growth work of books and podcasts ...likely due (tongue in cheek) to the Hollis divorce fallout. I’m in the same boat and found it a nice bit of comic relief. My goal with listening to this duo is to continue to strengthen an already great and strong marriage union of 35 years. We should always be curious learners. You are the best I have found in my research at what you do and have answers aplenty for my social media cravings. Thanks to you both!!

Fun and inspiring!

Love that Zach and Laura provide powerful tips in this podcast but still keep it light and playful. An awesome combination of traits that we can take into our own marriage!
