It’s easy to end a long night of bedtime routines and go your separate ways from your spouse to find some rest and relaxation. It’s easy to love and protect our little ones so much that we lose sight of the needs of our spouse. But when a family is not structured the way that God has designed it to be, it begins to create a slow drift that will eventually drown a marriage. 

P.S. You guys, it’s time! The Wife Project Course: From Roommates to Soulmates is HERE for the FINAL LAUNCH! Don’t miss it! Fight for a happier, healthier marriage in 2022 – it begins with you because nobody else will do it for you. In a society that treats our marriages as disposable, we have to do the hard work & fight in faith to fulfill God’s beautiful design of marriage. The easy way out is very rarely the best way out.

On today’s episode, Jesse and I share our own experiences with the damage caused by a child-centered marriage after we had our first son. We discuss the moment that we were called out on it and what we have learned from that point.

We share practical wisdom on how to restructure your family dynamic, or simply strengthen it, and why this design is created to help us, not hurt us. We pray that this conversation helps your marriage immensely and causes you to seek Jesus in the way that He wants to shift your family focus and design.
