Distractions are all around us. We live in a world where we are instantly connected to so many things around us and sometimes it is hard to take our eyes off the social media news feeds, the instant messages, and the funny or heartwarming videos right at our finger tips.

Ep. 025: Keep It Simple

Same goes for finding ways and time to connect with your spouse in meaningful and significant ways. This week Dusty and Elizabeth talk about some of the simple things that they have done to stay connected with church...

Ep. 023: Let's Be Real

1/13/2021
We are only 2 weeks into 2021 and it has already been a year for the history books. The pandemic still rages on and now what lawmakers and news outlets can only describe as an attempted coup has taken place right here in America. To say that emotions have run high over the last few days would be and understatement. Far to often in ministry and in marriage we like to pretend that everything is just fine and we hide or bottle up our emotions and feelings. But the truth is that is neither...

Ep. 022:The Spiritual Drought

1/6/2021
Happy 2021! The new year is officially here. This week Dusty and Elizabeth dive in to the difficult topic of Spiritual Drought. Let's be honest, we all long to be as close to God as we can possibly get. We want to know we are walking hand in hand with the Lord, but the truth is at some point everyone goes through a season of spiritual dryness. These are the moments that we just don't really feel God's presence. We don't hear God's voice. We have little to no motivation to read the Word,...

EP. 019: Our Year in Review

12/16/2020
Let's be honest, 2020 was not the year anyone expected it to be. Things started off strong but man did we all get hit with a curveball in March. When making plans and goals no one thinks to include something like a global health crisis or stay at home orders. Things like that can make it hard to really see the good that has come out of the last 12 months, but the truth is there are bright spots if you look hard enough. This week Dusty and Elizabeth recap some of the things that have happened...

Ep. 015: Traditionally Speaking

11/18/2020
Tradition is defined as "the transmission of customs or beliefs from generation to generation, or the fact of being passed on in this way." Some of these traditions are fun and have a wonderful meaning attached. Others happen simply out of circumstances years before and no one really knows why they take place. It is no secret that when new people are integrated into our lives it is hard to navigate how to honor the history while determining if the traditions that are passed on are healthy,...
