They talk openly, honestly, and humorously about the betters and the worsts of their marriage, sharing how grace, commitment, cooperation, and lots of laughter have kept them united over the years.

Whether you’re newly married and desire to build a strong foundation, or you’ve been married longer and your relationship needs a little TLC, you’ll gain practical, realistic ideas for strengthening your Team Us.

    Why Being Right in Marriage Can Be Wrong

    Why Being Right in Marriage Can Be Wrong

    How often do you need to be right? And how do you respond when you’re not right, and your spouse is? We’re digging into all that today and discussing why being right in marriage can be wrong. Listen in as we chat about how we can help maintain the peace, not by hoping that our spouse, if ever asked, applaud us as always right. But instead, by actively practicing humility.

    2 Practical Ways to Choose Humility


    Reject me-centeredness
    Choose both/and

    Us Time Challenge 

    Identify if there are any little areas where you insist on being right. We all have them. Then, figure out how you can practice both/and in this area.

    Money Talk in Marriage

    Money Talk in Marriage

    In this episode, we’re talking about something that’s in every marriage—and that’s money! We’ll be the first to admit that finances aren’t an area we have all figured out. But a recent message from our pastor got us freshly contemplating how much trust and dependence we put in it.

    Listen in as we reflect on his sermon and share our results from a money personality assessment. We also discuss how we aren’t 100% on the same page in every area regarding money, but we’ve learned not to let it divide us.

    Take the 5 Money Personalities Assessment at 5moneypersonalities.com this week with your spouse. Share your results with each other—and with us on social media.

    5 Ways to Stop Your Differences from Dividing You as a Couple

    5 Ways to Stop Your Differences from Dividing You as a Couple

    Have you ever looked at your spouse and asked, “What do we have in common?” Maybe there have been times when you’ve even felt like you have more differences than similarities.

    In marriage, there’s always the potential for our differences to eat away at our unity—especially if that’s what we focus on. Today, we’re sharing five practical ways you and your spouse can stop your differences from dividing you.

    How to Stop Your Differences from Dividing You


    Understand that you are innately different
    Don’t despise each other’s differences
    Learn to appreciate and respect each other’s differences
    Have shared interests that unite you
    Spend time together

     

    Us Time Challenge 

    Identify one difference that’s been dividing you and your spouse lately. Take some time to think about what you can appreciate and respect about that difference. Then, tell your spouse—and be sure to keep it all positive!
