We’re back! It’s been awhile. Full disclosure? Sure, life has been busy, yada yada yada, insert all of the usual excuses here. Every time we sat down to record a podcast, we would end up fighting. We’ve said before that what makes us work also makes us collide. A lot. And we ended up colliding. A lot. The crazy part is, we both feel like we’re called to this podcast. And we’re (sort of) done with the season of our marriage where we just avoid the conflict (I say “sort of” because we still have our days, but net total, we’re more willing to go into the conflicts). So, I’m telling you this, because I’d like to ask you to pray for us. Pray for us and pray for the podcast.

This recording was spontaneous and I had no idea what the topic would be. It was all in Tim’s head, inspired by our friends and a blog post. Our lives are busy, and it’s a constant battle to keep the top priorities at the top of the list. We don’t have it all together. What are things you do to show your spouse that they are top priority? What makes you feel like you are top priority?

Oh, and don’t forget to weigh in on Tim’s pants!

I am thankful to all of the people in Tim’s life that have helped shape the man he is today. From his mom who exemplified the importance of faithfulness to his youth ministers who gave Tim their time and allowed him to pepper them with his MANY faith questions, and everyone in between, thank you for your impact. Because we covered only a short time period in his faith journey, many people who had a profound effect on Tim’s faith went unmentioned.

We’re back! Being vulnerable is just plain hard. We tackled a friend’s question, but we took it a lot further than maybe she needed.

Whenever you have two people trying to make one life together, things can get really messy. We’re learning how to live in the arena of marriage and how to reconnect when a disconnection happens. We touch on leadership in marriage and even offer a possibility for the “wife’s trump card”.

First came love, then came marriage, then came the baby… and then the came the every day, never-ending cycle of feeding children, changing diapers, and doing the laundry. That’s where I was a little over a year ago.

I got to those days by doing one thing after the next, in part because I thought that’s just what you did. I didn’t really have dreams. I’m not sure it occurred to me to have dreams.

It’s no secret that I’m a bookworm and most of my inspiration comes from reading. Chip Gaines’ book Capital Gaines met me where I was at and planted the seed that I could have dreams. Jennifer Fulwiler’s book One Beautiful Dream gave me permission to have dreams now (or, then as it were).

I’ve been on a path of discovery ever sense. I’m searching for what I want, and learning to orient my days around that. I don’t want to wait until my kids are out of the house. I needed (or at least I thought I needed) permission from someone to have an awesome life.

I still feed children, do laundry, and wipe bottoms. And, while there is a beautiful liturgy in those things, I’m excited to go after my dreams today, every day.
