A must listen!

Hugely insightful and full of different perspectives. Agree with all of them or not (I think you’ll agree with most 😜) there is something for everyone from encouragement to challenge.

This is so exciting

This podcast is packed with pointers and insights to improve my romantic relationship and other relationships, too. This has the potential to help many military (and non-military) individuals, partners, and whole family systems.
So glad Liz is filling this niche to help this population and make this world better, relationship by relationship.
Plus, Liz is personable and easy to listen to - it's entertaining!

Episode 6

Love the advice Liz gives. I can really connect with her. Her personal input really made it interesting. I also like her tone of voice she sounds very friendly and keeps your attention. I can’t wait to listen to the next episode.
