36. How to Find Couple Friends (with our local friends)

For years, I believed the lie that I didn’t know how to be a good friend. Because of some past hurt and rejection, I told myself that I was a disappointment to those closest to me. I let this lie become my truth and I built a thick barricade around myself to keep other women…

33. How to Be Married to a Strong Woman (with Jesse Paine)

Jesse surprised me as we were prepping for this episode by telling me he had recently deleted Facebook off of his phone. I had no idea that he had, but I had noticed he has been knocking things off his to do list right and left. In this episode, we not only talk about boundaries…

We’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about the Enneagram recently, so I thought it was high time we devote part of an interview to explaining what it is and why it can make such a difference to understand.
