Health & Wellness Podcasts >

Hi, we're Andy and Sarah Armento and we have been married for nearly 14 years. From high school to marriage in no-time flat, we made a few mistakes along the way. Ok, maybe more than a few. In this podcast, we pull back the curtain on our real-life Christian marriage, mistakes and all. That is why we are going to tell all. Some content may be a bit raw, but we will be 100% honest. We are still working on our marriage. Because there is no such thing as a perfect marriage, we can't in good conscience say that practice makes perfect. Rather, we like to think practice makes progress. We want you know that you're not alone. We're all in this Marriage in Progress story together. So join us as we work on our Marriage in Progress.

When it comes to marriage, infatuation and early-marriage butterflies can only sustain the "in-love" feeling for so long. We all have what Gary Chapman refers to as a love tank and it is either being filled or being emptied. What we often fail to realize is that our love tank is only filled when we are spoken to in the love language we speak. This often means learning a new way to speak. And learning to speak a foreign language is challenging. Duolingo anyone? That is why we need all the...
