    Making the Most of Our Differences

    Making the Most of Our Differences

    Mr. Jones and I may be as different as night and day, but when faced with the decision of whether to allow our differences to kill us or make us stronger, we chose the latter! 

    We’re not perfect but once we finally stopped trying to duplicate ourselves in one another, we realized that our differences make all the difference!  Our distinctions make us great!  This truth turned a relational achilles heel into an impenetrable foundation! 

    We're excited to share how we “made the most of our differences” and used them as sand paper to smooth out our rough edges and create a perfect fit!  

    Just another friendly reminder that YOUR MARRIAGE IS WORTH THE WORK!

Certified Great Info

This podcast great not just because of the content but because I have a personal relationship. I would be a remised if I didn’t share as a friend.
Thank you both for your transparency and wisdom. You guys have clearly invested time and energy into putting this together for the public. On top of all that you’re certified as counselors to speak about these topics to help people with their marital decision making, all for the betterment of their relationship.

Thank you!!
