In the latest episode we discuss the importance of Core Values for your marriage and family. This might not be something you have thought about before which makes sense because we aren't taught to have core values. So today our goal is to help you realize why they are important and give you ways to come up with those core values and how to implement them in your marriage. Here’s some questions to ask yourself. 1. How would we like our family, guests to feel when they enter our home? 2. What are our gifting and passions as a family? 3. What would our family look like if it turned out well? 4. How can we transmit our values to our children? How are we daily communicating values?
In our latest episode we discuss the important roll of not just being a godly husband, but a godly father. What does it look like when a father is absent? What does it look like to emotionally connect with our child and not just provide for them? You might not be a dad yet, but its never to early to start preparing. Welcome to The Married Life
