Have you ever experienced high frustration levels with your significant other over something that is quite trivial? Something seemingly small likes the dishes, or arriving somewhere on time, or everyone’s favorite: laundry? You wonder why your emotions seems out of proportion to the situation at hand.
It just shouldn’t be this difficult, right?!
If you’ve had these thoughts, you’re definitely not the only couple that has been there.
In this special episode, Jordan welcomes in her husband, Matt, as they discuss married life and fruitfully navigating differences in a relationship. Tune in to learn practical and tangible tips on:
- Balancing contrasting strengths and weaknesses on a daily basis,
- Fun ways to work toward common goals,
- Creating boundaries that result in unity; and
- How to affirm one another in an impactful way.

And this applies for other relationships, too. Coworkers, friends, families – if you’re able to identify how your strength can support a not so strong area in their life, sister, you’ll begin to see frustration level decrease and teamwork increase.
You got this. With a little patience, a touch of creativity, and a lot of intentionality – you’ll begin to refine your relationships by redefining boundaries.
