Speak Well of Your Husband

Shortly before I married Josh, my friend Ginny passed on a small quote that has dramatically shaped our relationship. It’s too good to keep to myself, so I hope you enjoy part one of this two-part series with Ginny on marriage advice and raising children.

I want to thank Ginny so much for taking time out of her busy schedule to share her heart. We planned on about 45 minutes for the interview. I shut off the recording at 90 minutes and we talked for another hour after that. I love Ginny so much and appreciate the example she has set for me to strive after.
