You guys, we just scored some sound advice on bedtime problems, sibling rivalries, and technology + teens. These two have a framework that has really shaped my parenting and now they have even more resources for us to enjoy!

Jim & Lynne LOVE making God’s grace and truth practical for parents. Their combination of experience at home with three wired kids, and in careers helping kids and parents, have uniquely prepared them to give parents tools they can use right away, supported by memorable principles that will last a lifetime. Since we talked last, Jim and Lynne have started their own Connected Families podcast! You can visit their website at connectedfamilies.org to learn more.

WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT:

  • the framework of parenting - foundation, connect, coach, correct

  • how our relationship with parental figures influences our foundation

  • becoming a coach, facilitator, and encourager in sibling conflict

  • how to intervene in sibling conflict to break the pattern of aggressor and victim

  • getting your kids to bed without the struggle

  • kids and technology

Do you love to storm out when you’re fighting with your spouse? Maybe get a good door slam in and draw things out a bit? Conflict happens. Especially with those partners we love so much and that’s exactly what we’re talking about today with The Peppers.

Gerard Brown and Jessie Artigue launched the now popular ‘Marriage is Funny’ podcast just two days after a serious discussion about divorce. Four years later, they credit the health of their connection to a podcast community that developed in response to the radical vulnerability they bring to their listeners each week. They refuse to claim the title of “RELATIONSHIP EXPERTS” because they continue to figure things out just like everybody else. Residing in sunny Long Beach, CA, Gerard and Jessie believe that talking things out and tight bear hugs fix (almost) anything, have committed to what they call ‘Great Love,’ and strive to find the humor in every mess. 

As a special gift, Jessie and Gerard are sharing their free video series about the three “marriage myths” that nearly ruined their relationship with MSW listeners at meetthepeppers.com/strugglingwell!

WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT:

  • how Jessie and Gerard’s struggling marriage lead them to start their podcast

  • how we can grow in relationships through conflict

  • having conflicts well

  • better communication by changing the language around your internal story

  • reframing marital myths

  • grieving unmet expectations

  • advice for making friends as a couple

  • supporting a partner with an anxiety disorder
