Simply Joyful Podcast — Jill Savage - No More Perfect Marriages: A Candid Conversation on Marriage & How to Better Affair Proof Yours!

Marriage! We're talking about marriage today! It's perfect timing with Valentine's Day here. I know this episode is going to be such an incredible blessing to you! My lovely guest Jill Savage is sharing from her new book, No More Perfect Marriages. She gets very vulnerable and talks about her husband's infidelity and how that impacted their family. I know you will be encouraged as she shares very practical advice about how you can work to affair proof your own marriage by being more aware of the “slow fades” that you may have.

In this episode Jill is sharing some amazing insight on marriage. She and her husband Mark wrote a blog series called “No More Perfect Marriages,” which tells of the story of their marriage going through a horrendous crisis. God asked them to share their story which is where their book No More Perfect Marriages was designed. Their story is ultimately a story written for every marriage, in any stage.

I hope you enjoy my conversation with Jill! Get ready to be encouraged!
