In today’s episode I wrap up the five part series on marriage. Today I focus on our current season, cultivating togetherness, and we are teammates, partners and friends. I share how our friendship is foundational to our marriage in this season of working through day to day life together; as parents, business owners, and a couple. As we end this series I think it’s simply important to remember that we will ebb and flow in and out of different seasons in our lives. And by listening to my vulnerability and Richard’s vulnerability in our marriage we can inspire, encourage, and hopefully give you some jumping off points for your own marriage.

- If you aren’t friends with your spouse then return to the discovery phase of marriage and unearth what attracted you to them. (12:14)
- One of the big issues with marriages getting stuck and needing to go back to the growth & discovery stage. (15:28)
