Making Marriage Work Episode 2: My WHY for Offering Marriage Services
Making marriage work is no easy task (if you're not sure what to do to improve it)... I know from personal experience. I once felt shame and frustration about a marriage that wasn't what I thought it should be. I want to remove that shame, and provide a safe place for support and get tools to make your marriage dream a reality. We all deserve the marriage we want and it is within our reach! There's a lot on the line if marriage fails... this reality can be overwhelming or it can empower you to create a marriage that works.
Mental Health Matters Episode 2: How Do You Hold Emotions?
This week's inspiration is from a professor, Dr. Michael Gillern, who said "Emotions are like fine china and most of us are eating out of paper plates." Do you treat emotions as items that are too fragile to share? Or perhaps only express them during special occasions? Do you think of your feelings as disposable or unimportant? These are important questions to ask yourself. How you hold emotions will have everything to do with how you express your own and how you receive the expression of them by others.
