We are Dan & Danielle Macaulay and we both married up 21 years ago. We are thrilled to bring you this marriage encouragement podcast to help you keep your marriage moving in the right direction! Presented by "A Better Us"! We have seen our imperfect marriage, differences included, become a win-win when we allow God to help us navigate it all. We believe the same is true of you! So we're doing our best, and inviting you along to see that YOU married up too!
What your spouse IS and is NOT...
Are you operating in disfunction and don't even realize it? Maybe it's been a slow drift, or you've adopted patterns we all see in the world around us that aren't actually helpful, healthy or Biblical. This week we have some reminders of what your spouse IS and what they are NOT. A quick refresher that we all need from time to time!
Advice for Your Newlywed Self?
If you could go back and give your newlywed self one piece of advice - what would it be? We asked this question on socials and we have all the answers! There's some good advice here - and it's good advice for all us old-ly-weds to be reminded of too!
The Busy Marriage
Is your life moving at 90MPH to the point where you and your spouse can be "ships passing in the night"? So many of us live life in the fast lane to the point that staying connected in our marriages can get left in the dust cloud of the rat race! Pastors Chris and Jeanette Willis share with us all some of the things that help them stay grounded together in the midst of their busy lifestyle!
Seasons and Sacrifice
We talk to our new friends, former CFL Hamilton Tiger-Cat, Luke Tasker and his wife Jenna Tasker, about the seasons of their marriage together, and the sacrifice each one requires! Listen to find out the one constant that held them together through it all - it's something key to every marriage!
Your Empty Nest IS coming
Your "little birdies", if you have any, ARE going to grow up and leave the nest one day! What will that be like? What can you do NOW (if you're not there yet) to prepare your marriage and your "birdies" for that moment so you both thrive? We talk with Pastors, long time friends of ours, and fresh empty-nesters Paul and Lori Allen and it's a GREAT conversation for you to listen-in on!
Rocked By Rejection
Has rejection been a part of your life? We bet it has! And rejection can cause an infection that will make us react to our spouse and everyone around us out of hurt in self defense. But in reality, not all rejection is bad. Sometimes is can be a gift from God! Let's talk about how we can see rejection and ourselves correctly and combat the lies of the enemy with the truth of God's Word!
Can’t wait for the first podcast!!
