What a fun interview this was! Jon Acuff is a NYT best selling author, speaker, and the wittiest person we’ve ever met. Jenny is a rockstar wife and isn’t afraid to tell it how it is. Together they’ve been married for 15 years with 2 daughters and they are a blast to be around. If you don’t like to laugh, then avoid this podcast episode because we were laughing in the first 3 minutes.
It all started with THIS. After Mandy heard Jon speak at a conference, she knew she had to meet the women behind Jon…
With a blast from the past… we’ve been friends with the Acuffs for some time now… and love getting to do a little life with them.
In today’s episode we’re bursting out laughing and sharing a little behind the scenes of how they make their marriage work. Here’s a recap for what’s to come when you tune in:
- The first 5 years of marriage for the Acuff’s were well, we could sum it up as HARD. It takes work to be married… And a lot of times no one comes to you and tells you how to learn to be married. It’s not like we grow up learning in school how to handle conflict in marriage. Hear how they’ve learned to work things out and peel back the layers throughout the years.
- There’s often this stigma that if you go to marriage counseling you’re a “failure”… so how can you overcome that and benefit from it? You’ll get a good laugh about how to NOT use google to find a counselor.
- With Jon working to chase dreams and discover who he is topped with a travel schedule for speaking there’s a lot of time and strain on the family… so how does Jenny handle that? It’s no easy feat, but you’ll hear a few good tips and ideas for how they’ve walked this journey. From how to not put your own guilt on your kids about being gone all the time to what it looks like to just say no to somethings.
