In this episode Dr. Kim and Christina talk about this concept the Bible teaches about “speaking the truth in love.” 

 

Out of love and grace for each other sometimes we don’t want to say the hard things even if they are true. But to love is to tell the truth. We especially do want to tell the truth to our spouse. 

 

In this episode Dr. Kim and Christina got into detail about what it means to speak the truth to your spouse and how to do it. They also talk about how to not take this too far by sharing about when it’s best to not speak up because there is certainly a time and place for that as well.

In this episode Dr. Kim and Christina talk about giving yourself grace. Accepting the gift of grace God has granted us and living in that grace.

 

If you struggle with self condemnation and beating yourself up we pray this episode encourages and inspires you. 

 

A grace filled marriage is an awesome marriage and this goes in every direction. Holding onto things and beating yourself up will affect your marriage because an unhealthy you makes for an unhealthy marriage. But a healthy you makes for a healthy marriage. So let’s ask God to help us walk in health when it comes to grace today.

In this episode Dr. Kim and Christina talk all about confession in marriage. What confession is, why it’s important, what it should look like in marriage, and how to do it. 

Confession isn’t something that we hear a lot about which is odd because it’s a pretty essential Christian practice. It’s tied to repentance and the gospel and living a reformed life. 

Whether you have never thought about confession in your life, or you have weird thoughts about it being tied to Catholicism, or you do try to confess on a regular basis - we think you’ll find what Dr. Kim has to say in this episode helpful. 

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

At least once a week we get a comment or question about this, which tells me many of you are struggling with this. Well today we want to provide some helpful insight into what to do when you are in this position. We want to clarify what is and isn’t your responsibility in this as the wife. We also want to share some helpful things to do to encourage your husband and share some UNhelpful things to avoid doing.

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.
