“Team language” is a great counselor term that I’ve heard Dr. Kim use a lot, and I wanted to learn more about what that looks like – and doesn’t look like – in marriage. Join us today as we unpack practical ways to shift to a team mindset and use team language.

P.S. Did the “good guy” idea Dr. Kim mentions later in the episode step on your toes like it did mine?! Let me know if that’s something you want to hear more about!

Do you have goals or ideas you’d love to see happen this year? There are a lot of ways to embrace creating a vision, like New Year’s resolutions, setting an intention, or creating a vision board. The Bible also speaks to this in Proverbs. It’s not enough to hope your marriage goes in the direction you want it to - be intentional with where you want to go this year. Join Dr. Kim and I as we talk about how to effectively set an intention for your marriage this year.

I love something Christina said on a recent episode: “When your marriage is reflected in your budget, your calendar, your thoughts, and your prayers then it is a top priority.” As we get the new year started, it’s a great time to take stock of your marriage. What’s going well, and what’s just not working? So today I’m talking to Dr. Kim about what it means to check up on your marriage annually, how he and Nancy do this, and how to get started if, like me, this is pretty new to you and your spouse!
