Kaitlin and Katie are back on the couch, with coffee in hand, ready to chat your socks off. This week they are savoring and sharing the treasures they are mining in Ann Voskamp’s, “The Broken Way”

Engagement, marriage, anniversaries and relationships lend themselves to the beauty found in brokenness. Kaitlin shares her take-aways from a recent marriage conference she attended at their church, Church of the Highlands,

Jimmy Evans was the speaker, who encouraged couples, at every stage of their relationship, to lay their own way down and live for the life of the other; selflessness is the key to a love that lasts.

Although a generation apart, Kaitlin and Katie find common ground in the broken places. Walking alongside one another, their transparent conversations are living proof that leaning into and sharing our brokenness is the path to the abundant life.

Kaitlin recently gave a surprise 25th anniversary party for her parents; she shares her family story and their keys to a love that lasts, golden nuggets you will not want to miss.

They wrap up with a lightning round of word association, from a Buzzfeed personality test. https://www.buzzfeed.com/pablovaldivia/this-word-association-test-will-determine-your-personality?utm_term=.jiq7abEgPM#.ttZ3V0r6Pq
The hope behind these talks is that will entertain and encourage you and that you will leave inspired to connect with the generations that have gone before and are coming behind. We need each other and we are most definitely #bettertogether.
