Maintaining a Healthy and Happy Marriage When the World Is Working Against It With Kristi Hendriks – 113

 

We are living in a culture where everything is way too fast paced, where we somehow always over-schedule ourselves, and where we are constantly comparing ourselves to everyone else’s highlight reels in our social media feeds. It’s a hard culture to navigate! And when you add marriage into the mix, it can become extremely difficult to maintain one that is both happy and healthy. Sometimes it feels like all these things that make up today’s world are eroding the foundation and stability of our marriages.

So how do we thrive in our marriage, or simply keep it in tact, when it feels like everyone and everything is fighting against it on every front?

Kristi opens up about the struggles and obstacles she and her husband face in their marriage as a result of being in the public eye. She shares her best advice for maintaining a healthy and happy relationship when it feels like the world is constantly challenging it.
