Welcome to the very first ever episode of The #staymarried Podcast!
Now available on iTunes and I’m pretty sure every other podcast app. SUBSCRIBE! Let us know if you can’t find it on yours.
It’s new, it’s our real voices, and it’s only slightly awkward to listen to. But, what the heck? Why podcast?
We’ve been sharing our hopes, stories, and resources with you for three years. Can you believe it? When we launched our very first post on October 2, 2012, we didn’t even know if anyone would read it. But you did! And you shared it with your friends! And now thousands visit the site every single day! It’s surreal, but it keeps us dreaming of more ways we can share our vision of butting up against the odds and encourage each other in this most beautiful and daunting work of marriage.
So, a podcast. It turns out that people who regularly listen to podcasts may not necessarily read a blog. And those of you who have been regularly reading the blog may not listen to many podcasts. This is our attempt at getting MORE hope, stories, and resources out there to MORE people. We feel stretched and nervous to kick this thing off, but you know that’s not going to stop us.
Welcome to the first episode in which we introduce ourselves. This is the intro to a series based off of Dr. John Gottman’s book, The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work. Over the course of this series we will give time to each of the seven principles – which we’ll refer to as the Seven Do’s – as well as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse – which we’ll refer to as the Four Don’ts
Take a listen. Leave a comment and let us know what you think! Let us know if this is your first time with us at #staymarried or if you’ve been following along for-like-ever! Where are you from? Are you married? How long? We can’t wait to get to know you and maybe even have some new conversations with you all along the way.
Oh, and since I mention Tony’s Dad-ness in the podcast, here’s a video example of what I’m talking about. Enjoy!
The #staymarried blog was created to offer hope, stories, and resources for couples who want to stay married.
If you found this post helpful, we would be honored if you would share it. Our big dream is to see more and more people living in happy and healthy marriages!
