Have you ever felt like you and your spouse are on different pages when it comes to hosting? We were married not even a year and I packed our social calendars FULL. Looking back we had plans in our house nearly every night and my party loving, people loving self was ecstatic. It didn’t take long for a conversation to happen between Colby and I about expectations. It didn’t even cross my mind that maybe, just maybe, someone may need to balance hospitality with quiet time. We learned quickly what this balance looked like for us, and truthfully we ended up healthier because of it!
This type of dynamic is SO normal, do you experience it too? Through years of listening to you and hearing your stories so often this tension or sorts, can keep either marriages divided or doors closed. With neither being ideal, it was time to bring the conversation to the table!
Do you feel like the communication leading up to having people over causes more harm then good? Do you wish that you and your husband or wife shared the responsibilities before a bit better? Do you want to know the truth behind the way we say what we say and passive aggressive statements?
I knew my conversation with Dr. Glenn and Phyllis would be good, but I couldn’t have been prepared for just how profound and transformational it actually was! Whether you are married, about to be married to waiting on your soul mate- this conversation will change you!
I was living in Thailand, longed for community, starting opening my door and filling my table. Now I’m living ‘charcuterie’ as a way of life and teaching what I learned about living intentionally everyday.
