In this episode Dr. Kim has his good friend Pastor Colby Taylor with him. Colby has been on the show before with his wife Amanda, and he was on a few weeks ago for our Mancasts (which you should go listen to if you haven’t already!). 

In this episode they discuss how to be a great husband even when you’re really busy. This is a tension we hear all the time in the counseling room. “I want to be a good husband, but I’m stretched so thin, we’re so busy. How can I make time for this?” 

Colby is the Host Team Pastor at Life.Church and has a ton of responsibilities there, he also leads the Engaged Event efforts alongside his wife Amanda, he supports her in her career at Embellished Weddings, and he has 6 children. And yet he is an incredible father and husband.

No one wants to be the couple that’s always fighting in front of the kids. We’ve all heard stories of grown children not wanting to get married because all their parents ever did was fight. But I’m sure you’ve also heard stories of people whose parents “never” fought and how that set them up from some really unrealistic expectations in their own marriage. 

So what’s the balance? That’s what Dr. Kim & Christina discuss in today’s episode!

Sometimes we get so caught up in the tasks and responsibilities of parenting that we neglect our marriage and our spouse. But what many of us don’t realize is, we can invest in our marriage through parenting, by loving our spouse as they parent. We can look at this like an opportunity instead of viewing parenting as something that takes away from our marriage.

Children are blessings and God didn’t design them to distract you from your marriage, the family unit is God’s good design and we can all grow in love as we do family life together. One key to that is loving and appreciating the role our spouse plays a mother or father.

In today’s episode Dr. Kim & Christina discuss how to love your spouse in their parenting role. Tune in to learn more!
