  • Hey guys! I first found your blog by accident while reading various online articles about the gottman method. I must have made the assumption that this was a Christian blog but the more I listened to the podcast and read the blog I just never really heard faith being brought into the discussion. I am not writing this to be in any way offensive at all. I just thought I would put it out there as I don’t think I could stay married doing this in my own strength even with all the best advice and resources. Was that a false assumption about your faith background or if not is there a reason that’s not really been discussed? I

    • Hi Noel,
      Thanks for reaching out 🙂
      While my husband and I are both Christians, I would not consider this a Christian blog. Our hope is to bring the truths of what makes a marriage work to all married couples regardless of their faith background. We share about our own faith here and there, on the blog as well as in the podcast. What we rely on most is research, especially the research from The Gottman Institute since they have done the most comprehensive work we have found. Unsuprisingly, the research does point back to the truths found in the Bible about love being first of all sacrificial, kind, respectful, and generous. So, we’ve experienced that people of all backgrounds have stumbled upon our work and been able to apply the principles in a way that is most meaningful and productive for their unique marriages. I hope you find what we do helpful and encouraging for you, too.

  • I haven’t listened to this yet but I thought you might find it interesting on busyness

    I really like Oliver Burkeman’s writing on self help (particularly that it’s evidence-based) so I’m hoping this will be good.

    Thanks so much for the series- I’ve really enjoyed it.

    Also I thought I’d mention that I really appreciate the way you deal with your faith in the blog and podcast. I’m not Christian but am really interested in relationships and I find that so much of what’s written on the subject is so heavily faith-based to make it off-putting and irrelevant to me. I love that you are happy to share but that it isn’t the only perspective you bring.

    Good luck on the book
    xx Lizzie
