In this episode we are going to talk about the power of a Shared Vision! We are wrapping up our first long road trip since we went to full time living in a RV.

So, it seems appropriate that we share how your shared vision can propel your life, and your marriage, forward as well! We encourage and challenge you to work at developing this skill of dreaming big together so that you can build a more vibrant, healthy marriage and experience everything, and more, you dreamed of when you said "I Do"!

We get this question way too often but, the answer is always the same ... absolutely!

A heads up ... you are going to get two very different answers from Christie the professional counselor and Jim the coach and Divorce Care teacher and that's ok. You may find one answer more to your liking than the other!

What you will find the same coming from both of them is that it may not be easy and it may take a while, that said, we promise you it will be worth it!

This week's "tough question" is very simple ... how do YOU stack up in the two most important skills to the success of every marriage? Seriously, if you can work hard to be just good at these two you can have a SOLID marriage! Master these two and you can have a great marriage!

Last week we talked about what your 5 biggest strengths are. Well, it is equally important to be aware of and be working on what are challenges are. But ... we are going to cut you, and ourselves, some slack and focus on only 3! 

It takes courage to look in the mirror and admit our faults! NEWS FLASH ... we all have them. That just makes us human. How we handle them determines what kind of human, and spouse we are!

So, let's do the work this week and make a change for the better!

This week, in our 5 Tough Questions series we want you to list your top 5 strengths that you bring to the marriage! Strange that it would be one of our 5 Tough Questions series. Well, you would be surprised how people struggle to list what they are good at!

So, grab a note pad and a pen and get to it! After listening to the podcast of course!
