[Epsiode 015] How to grow together in marriage
This is the first time you will hear a man’s voice on the Feel Amazing Naked podcast. It may be one of the only times too.
This week’s special guest is my husband, who has literally been my best friend since we were thirteen years old.
Some people have their date nights watching Netflix but apparently, we have a date night in our closets with a glass of wine and 2 microphones. ANd I wouldn’t have it any other way.
We both have our unique areas of expertise but it’s really cool when we can combine our creativity and passion in one place and come together to serve others.
We’ve been married for almost 13 years and together for almost 20. We’ve been through many “seasons” of transition, some easier than others. Marriage is something we are good at because we constantly put in the work to get better. We don’t have it perfectly figure out and still have more to learn but it is something we constantly foster and cultivate. What we’ve really come to understand is that in order to thrive in your marriage you must GROW together, not apart.
Easier said than done, right?
In this episode we talk about:
-Our crazy life and a BIG turning point in creating the life WE wanted
-Why “busy” isn’t a valid excuse for not investing in one another
-Our five tips for spending time growing together, rather than apart.
My hubby has an awesome podcast too for the man in your life. You can listen HERE. You can also find him on Instagram HERE.

Justin, you are not alone.
& If you guys didn’t have sex after you finished recording the birthday episode, I’m disappointed for you!
Wow! What a great episode and thanks for sharing this!
I know where my husband and I will be tonight. That’s right, in the closet listening to this podcast. Like so many other couples, we too can relate to all of these issues and it’s nice to hear that we are not alone.
I will definitely share this on my social media sites.
Thank you so much, Suzanne!!! I am so glad it was relatable and reminds us that we are all in it together! I appreciate the support, love and share!!! Way to invest in yourself and continuing to grow!
Hahaha Scott! I am so glad the content was relatable. We both appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback!
Have a great day,
You guys rock. So great to hear about the successful marriages. Been butting heads with my hubby for 33 years. And 5 years testing it out! Still learning. Thanks for your openness.
Thank you Vicki for the sweet words. I agree…we are all just learning along the way. I am glad our openness was valuable to you! Keep working for it!
Thank you for sharing. It’s so easy to feel you are the only couple that has struggles in our perfect social media world of #blessed. Appreciate the honesty and sharing your tips to #weworkhardforthis!
Agreed–it is such a fine line on social media to inspire but to also be REAL. We all struggle and hopefully by talking more about it, we all don’t feel alone and can support each other. Thanks for the LOVE!
This was so good and EXACTLY what I needed this morning. I told my husband to listen to it on his way home.
I am so happy it resonated with you. Way to invite your hubby along on the journey too.
Cheers to growing together.
