Episode 4 – Silver Anniversary Lessons
Thanks so much for listening to our new marriage podcast, “Marriage to the Max”, hosted by Brett & Kellie Hurst of Home Encouragement. Your positive emails are keeping us going and we’re glad that the content has seemed helpful to several couples. We also hope that you have been enjoying listening to us bumble through these conversations. At least we’re having fun doing this….not sure about anyone else!
This year marks the 25th wedding anniversary of the Hursts. In some ways, it seems like we’ve been married forever….in other ways, it seems like we’ve only just begun (with apologies to The Carpenters). Looking forward, we can’t wait to be married for twice this long! There is still so very much for us to learn together, and we get excited thinking about that. We certainly have so much respect for those that can stay married for 50 years or more. Those couples have tremendous wisdom to share with others. But, actually, every married couple has some wisdom to share with others. And many couples have been faithful to pour those insights into couples around them. In fact, that’s one of the main reasons we started Home Encouragement’s Marriage Hall of Fame!
In this episode, we speak candidly about a few of the important things that we’ve learned so far from our marriage, at least up to the point of this Silver Anniversary. Every marriage has its own personality. As we reflect on this milestone together, you’ll get a small bit of insight into what makes us work as a married couple. Actually, we have tried to be reflective about our marriage as we’ve celebrated every anniversary. But we are particularly aware to do so during the biggest milestones. We hope you’ll be encouraged to take opportune moments to do the same in your own marriage. What have you learned as a couple lately? After all, marriage is one great teacher!
No matter how long you’ve been married, even if it’s been just a couple of weeks, we’d love to hear from you about how you’ve benefitted from marriage so far. Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us. We’re always looking for fresh insights of encouragement to share with other couples. And, as always, thanks for listening!
Special thanks to our engineer Zach Alkire who makes us sound tolerable! Also, we’re always grateful to Grant Peterson of South Hill Communications for all the nifty things he does to help our communications.
