Every relationship has conflict - it is universal + inevitable! But what sparks the most conflict in your relationship? Is it stress, lack of time together, money, hard days at work or with the kids?

To celebrate Memories of Us launching, we are diving into why making memories + marking moments is SO important to us and how you can cultivate this in your relationship too. We love what Corrie Ten Boom brilliantly says, “Memories are the key not to the past, but to the future.”Beyond making memories, we love to “lock it in.” This is our way of creating a mental tattoo of important moments to us; moments of celebration, loss, disappointment, or even just the little daily moments of discovery, connection, or breakthrough. It has become part of our marriage culture and we hope to encourage you to find your own way to integrate this into your relationship too!

We are SO excited for today’s episode because we are covering a lot of ground! First, we are going to tackle a fear floating around our world today when it comes to relationships: the fear of being cheesy. And how that fear holds us back from pursuing creativity in our love stories. We are also going to play a fun game that involves YOU guys! We asked you on Instagram to share some statements/assumptions about us, and we are going to answer those. A lot of those questions had to do with the farm. And we have been processing this all summer + are finally ready to share an update with you. While it won’t answer all your questions, we know that it will bring enough clarity as we share our hearts. And finally, we are going to talk about roles in our relationship (something you all have been asking more and more!) So grab a cup of coffee, sit fireside, and let’s dive in!

If you know us, you know that we THRIVE off of adventure + spontaneity! Sure, we need routine, but we also need newness. It is about finding that balance, stepping out of your comfort zone, and saying yes to moments along the journey. Adventures make good stories and they teach you so much about who you are, who someone else is, and how your relationship responds to life and situations. Our world today has over complicated and over saturated the truest form of adventure. We are constantly comparing our life to someone else’s and thinking we have to have the picture perfect adventure in order for it to be worth it. But that is not true at all! The muscle of adventure is there. It just takes flexing + creativity to unlock it. And once you do, it is well worth it! Behind the Scenes Podcast is partnered with Compassion International. When you sponsor a child, you receive a FREE copy of our latest book, Creative Love.

Communication is the most crucial component in marriage. It can strengthen, heal and acknowledge your commitment to grow your relationship. We live in a fast paced, convenient world that does not value the power of writing things down or communicating well. And one of the biggest things that come against healthy (+ creative) communication is social media. If not harnessed and wrangled, social media will rob you of your love story. Communication isn’t just a big conversation once a night before you go to bed. It can happen in creative ways throughout your day. Affirmations, sticky notes, letters - all of that. They are powerful! All it takes is a bunch of words strung together to build a beautiful story. There are little things you can do everyday that have weight + make such a big impact in your relationship. We hope this episode motivates you to do the small, simple, attainable things that come with big rewards. Behind the Scenes Podcast is partnered with Compassion International.

After a ton of prayer, endless hours of conversation, and plenty of tears, Jeremy + Audrey have decided to close the shop, Always More. If you have been following Audrey for a while, you know how difficult it was for her to make this decision. These words, inspired by Ephesians 3:20, are a reminder to ALWAYS believe in the MORE that is within, through Christ. Over the past 15 years, ALWAYS MORE has not only been a life mantra for Audrey, but it has also become a community, a clothing line, and a source of hope, inspiration, and encouragement to women around the world. There are countless stories about how ALWAYS MORE has helped so many people through loss, heartbreaking diagnosis’s, mental illness, miscarriages, becoming a mom, athletics, starting a business, or pursuing a dream. More than they ever imagined! We hope the shop closing doesn’t stop the ALWAYS MORE message continue to spread. The beautiful thing about encouragement is that it’s free to give, but it could be of infinite worth to the person receiving it. And that’s what we hope ALWAYS MORE will always be. #alwaysmore All things mentioned in this episode are linked HERE.

We have been loving this season on the podcast and one of the biggest conversations we are continuing to have is around the idea of rest and slowing down. Emily Ley justs released her 3rd book, When Less Is More, after a season of redefining what “the good life” meant to her. Her book was written from the trenches where she felt deep burn out even though a lot of good things were going on. She was saying yes to everything and soon her life and company became more complicated - coming against her foundational message of simplified. She felt really disconnected and far from herself.

We are so excited to have our good friends Ryan + Danielle Walker on the show today! They're the true picture of "for better or worse, in sickness and health," so commonly heard in wedding vows. And through each season they've walked, their marriage has only grown stronger. Danielle is a New York Times Best-Selling Author to several cookbooks, all which came from overcoming her sickness through changing her what she eats. And Ryan is a brilliant tech-guy who has created several apps that build connection and growth for businesses on social media. This episode is all about how walking through an autoimmune diagnosis and losing a child has only made them stronger, individually and as a couple. This is a transparent conversation packed with incredible wisdom! PS - we also have this incredible conversation around technology and how we strive to stay present when the phone and social media are major distractions.

It's the final episode in our friendship series and it's been so fun having our friends on the show to discuss community and lifelong friendship! Today we are talking about the difference between community and friends - which comes down to love drenched accountability. Community goes beyond catching up, just hanging out, and showing up for the big moments. It is about committing to every moment, leaning into growth, and being a constant stance of love and support for your friends (both in good and hard times). Community is a beautiful and biblical thing that we hope you experience!
This week, I am joined around the table with best friends - Dan, Mueller, and my brother Zach. We have been friends since kindergarten and have been friends ever since. We always come back to the farm to hang out around the campfire no matter where life takes us. Through all the seasons of life, we are constantly sharpening the iron in one another - which is crucial to building friendships that last!
On today's episode, Audrey gathers around her kitchen table with some of her best friends since kindergarten! They're talking all about building longterm, faithful friendships. Having 23 years of friendship together, they have learned how to maintain healthy friendships and how to prevent ruining them. We are excited for you to meet Audrey's "God Squad" in this episode!

We sit next to Dan every single day in the office and he is around when we record the episodes, but today he is joining the conversation! We are talking all about friendship, intermittent fasting, and taking you behind the scenes around the table we are building (an 8 ft. conference table!).

Jennifer + Aaron Smith have been married for 12 years, have 4 children and are fellow Oregon-friends who just released their second book, Marriage After God. Marriage After God isn't just a message, it is a movement. It is saying YES to what God wants FOR your marriage and FROM it. It is realizing the part your marriage plays in the big picture and going after it with everything you've got. It's saying yes to what God has given you and not comparing your marriage to what God has given someone else's marriage. And it is dreaming together, in oneness, as your marriage pursues the heart of God.
