What can The Marriage Podcast Do for You?
Who are these two and how can they do anything for my marriage?
How Corrie and I met under unusual circumstances.
In the last of our 5 part marriage series, we discuss communication.
In this podcast we discuss the different styles that we often use for communicating, both good and bad.
So why do we have such a hard time with good communication?
We believe it's for several reasons. First of all, I think we all come by it honestly. More than likely most of us did not have the greatest examples set when it comes to good communication. We probably had parents that set the most classic examples of poor communication. But even with that history, it is not a good excuse to not learn how to have better communication skills.
Just like most processes, we must first recognize that there is a problem. By that, what type of communicator are you? Does it seem as though you and your spouse have explosive arguments. Possibly it's because you do not communicate that there is a problem when the problem occurs and instead wait until it has festered and come explosively boiling to the surface. This type of communication causes nothing but bitter arguments and a spouse who feels defensive.
Find out in today's podcast the other ways we often communicate poorly and ways to help.
Also find out how not only communication can help you in numerous relationships such as your kids, friends and family, but will help in the bedroom and even possibly with greater success in business.
As a side note, we are very aware that the grammar in our title is poor. It was a play on the movie Zoolander.
In the forth installment of our five part marriage series, today we talk about sex in marriage.
We desired to have a very honest, yet tasteful podcast discussing one of the most skirted topics in marriage.
Well, unfortunately for most we feel it is one of those topics that if left ignored, it will go away. We feel that is a very unfortunate way to feel about sex.
Today we will talk about what a man wants and what a women wants in the bedroom and out of the bedroom.
How sex not only is a physical act, but how there is so much more to it than just what happens in the bedroom.
We will also move out of the bedroom and talk about how we deal with sex with our kids. We have taught our children from an extremely early age that sex is not dirty but something to be greatly enjoyed, by our beliefs, a couple who is married.
What about pornography or romance novels? You will get our thoughts on those two along with how we feel they can be extremely damaging to a marriage.
However, most importantly we will talk about how sex can be a joyful, fun experience that is so good you could write your own romance novel!

Continuing our 5 part marriage series, today we discuss kids.
These are just a few of the topics we will be discussing today with kids.
Did you and your husband ever discuss of many kids you want? I know we did.
Wowza! That was certainly something we had to work through. Here we are 4 kids later and going strong.
How did we do it? We talked about it. As simple as it sounds, sometimes in marriage we forget to talk about the most basic topics when it comes to our kids. Some of these topics include
Birth Control Intimacy Empty Nest Discipline
just to name a few. How do we handle these topics? Should we kiss in front of our kids? What about fighting? Today we will hit on all these topics and tell you not only what has worked for us but for others as well.
As part of our five part marriage series, today we discuss time and how it is not a four letter word.
We will discuss how it is possible to spend more time together and the benefits of spending time with your spouse.
We will also discuss the difference between quality and quantity time and why both are so very different but equally important.
The benefits will far outweigh the efforts.
So take some time out of your day to listen how to improve your marriage and take it to the next level.
For Trey and I this episode is so pertinent because we had to fight for the time to record this! We were hoping to have this podcast out by Wednesday, but yet due to time, ha, we kept on having to put it off! Trey and I truly have a phenomenal relationship but we have to fight tooth and nail for us to get any actual quality face time.
