This is our third "ASK" episode! Every now and then, we'll take a few of your questions and answer them here in a short 10-15 minute episode. Many of you asked questions about keeping your marriage alive while parenting, so we decided to share some reflections on these topics:

  • What is the best way that you have found to stay intimately connected when you have kids?
  • Did you have any systems that you put in place once you had children to make sure you stayed connected?
  • What was the biggest adjustment for your marriage after you had your first child?
  • As a stay-at-home mom with a 20-month-old, how do I get out of feeling like my life is a re-run?

If you're looking for ways to connect with your spouse while quarantined, check out these marriage card decks that we created just for you:

"Isn't it the church's job to teach my children about the Bible?"
This is a sentiment that is all-too-often shared by many busy, young married couples throughout North America.
 
Now more than ever, we need to be equipped as parents to pour into the hearts of our children at home. We met Justin Jeter in a hotel lobby when we were doing a marriage seminar in Arkansas last year and he was doing a children's conference in the same town. The more we learned about Justin and Hillary, the more we got excited about connecting with them and their ministry.
 
Justin and Hillary Jeter are the founders of THE RESOLUTE FAMILY, and they're also the Family Pastor and Director of the ECE ministry at their local church. They have such creative ideas about discipling your children at home and they even have free resources available for you!
 
In this podcast, Justin and Hillary share practical tips for us as young, married parents and they give so many examples for you to implement right away (and Lord knows we need more help in the home during the COVID-19 crisis).
