In this episode Dr. Kim speaks with special guests Emily Jensen and Laura Wifler from Risen Motherhood. 

Emily and Laura are the cofounders of the Risen Motherhood ministry and cohosts of the chart-topping podcast. They are also in the trenches of motherhood themselves and share their lives and learnings with their audience. Emily and Laura are not only ministry leaders together  but they are also sister-in-laws! Emily has 5 kids under the age of 7 and Laura has 3 kids 6 and under. They both live in central Iowa with their families.

We love this ministry because this ministry is giving gospel hope to Moms every day. Christina has been listening to their podcast for years and has found so much truth and hope in it to help her in her role as a Mom. 

Dr. Kim chats with Emily and Laura about how the gospel speaks to mothering and the roles of a parent. 

So many of you loyal listeners are Moms. This is a great conversation and Emily and Lauren give you Biblical framework to help you mother in light of the gospel. 

We pray this episode is helpful to you and your marriage.

In this episode Dr. Kim and Chrstina talk about how to recover from an open marriage. 

 

Dr. Kim shares about what an open marriage is, what God says, and how to recover from this kind of sexual baggage. 

 

We encourage you to not skip this episode even if that’s not your story. We are facing a culture where open marriages may very well become more common and sexual boundaries are being disregarded. Tune it so you can learn and better understand how to help people who may face this. 

 

And here is what we know is true: we all have experienced some kind of betrayal sexually in our marriage because every one sins sexually whether it’s lust, a look or thought that lasted too long, porn, or flirting, on an outright affair or open marriage. So we can all gain some wisdom from this conversation. 

 

*We do want to mention as a disclaimer we do talk about some hard things in this episode. It is not an episode you want to listen to around children. Also, we do briefly mention sexual abuse so we want to give that trigger warning for anyone who has experienced that. 

 

We pray this episode is helpful to you and your marriage.

In this episode Dr. Kim and Christina wrap up our Top 10 Marriage Mistakes Series by talking about the #1 Marriage Mistake Dr. Kim sees in marriages which is a lack of respect. 

 

Do you feel slighted or torn down by your spouse? Do you feel like your dignity is often bruised by how your spouse treats you? Well, we pray this episode can lead you to have some real, honest conversations with your spouse and that it will be the first step towards change for your marriage. 

 

Maybe you are thinking - this isn’t an issue for you. Don’t tune out! A lack of respect is a big issue in many marriages and the most destructive part of this is that most people aren’t aware they are being disrespectful. 

 

Most people aren’t conscious of the fact that they are disrespecting their spouse. There are lots of subtle ways we often treat others with a lack of respect. So tune it to hear how you can grow in this area. 

 

Dr. Kim shares practical advice on how to better respect your spouse. 

 

We pray this episode is helpful to you and your marriage.
