"We Are Dedicated To Building Vibrant Healthy Marriages!"

Mar 28, 2018

Hey gang ... 

There are a lot of things to learn when you take a 3,600 mile road trip that covers 7 days and 5 states! Here are 10 Tips For Traveling Together ... Across Town, Across Country Or Just Through Life In General! 

Here are just a couple of bullet points from the podcast:

  • First, plan the trip way in advance, do your homework and research. If you are going to spend the money and time make sure you get a great ROI! 
    • Plus ... you get to enjoy the anticipation of the trip!
  • Second, yes plan in advance but don't over plan! Leave some room for what we call "planned spontaneity" and watch for something cool to show up! 
  • Be a team and share the load so one person isn't responsible for everything. Use your strengths as leverage ... 
  • Be a team but also be capable of being independent! You are responsible for your own happiness!

You will have to listen to the podcast to get the other 6 Tips plus we have a "Bonus Tip" as well!

Our Listener Question of the Week has to do with solving the problem of one of you always having to be 30 minutes early for everything you do! You will be surprised at the answer!

Thanks as always!

Hey folks ... 

Today we come to you from our make shift studio in sunny West Palm Beach, Florida! Our trip is coming to a close but we still have one adventure left we will share with tomorrow. 

That said, we sat down and asked each other what have been the pluses of this road trip! And we came up with a bunch. They fell into a couple of categories:

  • Memories - we have tons of these!
  • Just time to talk - about nothing and about everything
  • Planning - especially where we are going with the podcast!
  • Learning - we used this time to learn some important stuff together!

That last one is the real focus of this particular episode! And ... we have another great "Listener Question of the Week"! 

In the podcast we make reference to a YouTube video "God's Perfect Plan For Marriage". Click Here to watch that video!

Hey folks ... 

What are the top 3 skills we need to have a vibrant, healthy marriage? Communication, communication and communication! 

All kidding aside we have found that great communication works to solve a wide variety of marital problems while poor communication exacerbates them!

So recently we spoke at the Connect Marriage Conference up in the Dallas/Ft Worth, Texas area and one of the topics we covered were the 7 Powerful Communication Skills! In this podcast we are sharing with you the recording of that part of the presentation. 

After listening we encourage you to sit down with the handout from that presentation and discuss 2 things with your spouse:

  • What are our individual communication strengths out of the 7 listed and how do they improve the quality of our marriage?
  • And, of course, what skills do we individually need to work on to improve the quality of our marriage?

You can find this handout to download as a guide on our Your Marriage Matterz Facebook page. 

We trust you will enjoy this recording from the Connect Marriage Conference!

PS ... we are taking a "Bucket List" road trip to the Houston Astros Spring Training in West Palm Beach beginning tomorrow, March 15th and we are inviting you to go along ... via Facebook live that is! If you haven't already "Liked" us on Facebook please do so and come along on the journey! We promise it will be fun!

Thanks gang ...

Hey gang ... 

First we wanted to thank you for all of the support we have received in these first few weeks! The podcast is growing like crazy and we are so appreciative!

In this week's episode we are going to talk about why it is so important to build YOUR Team and what all goes into that. While tons of people know us as Jim & Christie there are a growing number of folks that call us "Team Jacobus" and we love it. 

We believe and teach that in successful marriages the entity, the marriage itself, or what we call the team is more important than the individuals. That is not to diminish in any way either of the individuals in a marriage just a way of establishing a set of priorities with the marriage coming first. 

So, we trust you will enjoy this episode as we take you through the why what and how of building your team at home!

Jim & Christie Jacobus
