Believe it or not this week’s topic all came from a fish. On our first episode of the live stream we shared that we had just bought the boys their first pet fish, a small betta they named Kai.

This reflection applies to marriage and parenthood as well. And in this episode we talk about the primary purpose of marriage and parenthood. When it comes to marriage and parenthood are you thriving, or just merely surviving?
We love getting packages in the mail. It’s like Christmas! Today we open a box from Usborne Books & More, a publisher of some great children’s books.
