On our first relationship podcast, we introduce ourselves to you, our new community! Our recording studio for our podcast is in the back of our RV as we travel the United States. We have been traveling since January of 2011 with our four kids. We have been to all of the 48 contiguous states, not quite the continental United States because Alaska is still on our list! (When you hear me say continental on the podcast, replace it in your mind with contiguous, thanks.)
Jon and I met at the age of eleven, dated, married, and started having our family. About eleven years into our marriage it was failing. We decided to seek out help and worked at healing our own wounds as we worked towards healing the wounds in our marriage. After two years of intense therapy, we needed to spend some time working on what we had learned. We sold our house, our belongings, and piled in the RV for life on the road.
When we were struggling in our marriage it seemed like we were alone. Other couples were not talking about the difficulties they were having, so we chose not to speak of our pain. When we shared our stories with our therapy groups, we realized we were not the only ones and that every relationship has a journey. Finding loving, safe people to share with has been a gift in our healing process.
There is no shame in admitting that your relationship needs guidance, or that it is struggling. Our desire is to bring you hope as we share our own stories of failures and successes. We are here to answer your questions about relationship issues, and to offer you some tools that worked for us. We are still learning and growing in our own relationship, and we are excited to have a community to share this with as we journey together as couples.
