This is especially for married couples. Isolated with each other during a 6-8 week "stay at home" order.
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. So clicking the button below will take you directly to her post from this past week. We don't usually send you elsewhere than to our own blog page when you click the button, but this is excellent! You won't regret the 5 minutes you take to read it.
