So much of life is not what happens to us, but how we respond to it. Life is hard and it never seems to go exactly according to our plans. My grandad said that we all have the choice to either get bitter, or get better. And he lived out what it looks like to get better, even in the face of all of life’s troubles. Today Dr. Kim shares what ongoing bitterness looks like over time, and how we can avoid becoming grouchy, grumpy, and mean! 

Episode highlights include: 

  • How to know if you’re becoming more bitter 
  • Practical steps to help you “get better” instead
  • Tips for dealing with the difficult people in your life 
  • This week’s anonymous listener question leads to a memorable story from one of Dr. Kim and Nancy’s recent dates 

 

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

 

P.S. I misquoted his age in the episode - my grandad lived to 94½ before he went to heaven last year!

The healthiest marriages are between two healthy people. This week we’re unpacking why it’s so hard to be spiritually healthy without emotional health. The two are linked because a lack of knowing ourselves will seriously hinder our ability to connect with God and others. It’s a lot simpler, more accessible, and less touchy-feely than it may sound. 

Episode highlights include: 

  • The connection between emotional and spiritual health 
  • The unintended relational effects of unprocessed emotions
  • Tips to grow in emotionally and spiritually health
  • Plus this week’s anonymous listener question about an apathetic spouse

Apologies are necessary. We are all human and sinful, so we should all be apologizing regularly. But there are definitely right and wrong ways to do this, and most of us can certainly grow in doing apologies well. We’re on our Awesome Marriage Podcast summer break, and during these weeks off, we are re-sharing some of our favorite past episodes. These are episodes that you might have missed the first time, or that just deserve a re-listen! Today we’re re-airing this episode where Dr. Kim and Christina explain why good apologies matter, and help us learn to do this well.
