What we wouldn't have given for such an extended to of "just you and me, babe", right? Well, if you're like Ronda and me, there ARE some upsides to having fewer external commitments that take us away from home and each other. But we've probably had more conflicts with each other than usual the past 4 weeks. That's why the guest blog post you're about to read got my attention and resonated with our personal experience.
Jeff Pinkleton, a good friend and Encompass board member, forwarded the post to me. It's written by Toni Nieuwhof, wife of Carey Nieuwhof.

You won't regret the 5 minutes you take to read it.
