If you’ve been around here for any length of time, you’ve probably heard this from me before -

Relationships are the ultimate vehicle for personal growth (it’s so true)!

In today’s episode, I invite a couple on the show who exemplifies this concept in a big way. Derick and Dr. Liz Aquirre have been married for 12 years and have built an intentional, pleasure-filled & collaborative marriage that has transformed each of their lives immensely. Join us as we discuss how they have both grown inside of their relationship, as a result of the other’s influence, their passion for growing together as a couple, and the ultimate gift of participating in a truly collaborative marriage. 

We discuss:

  • Liz and Derick’s collaborative marriage & the impact they’ve had on each other’s transformational journey during their 12 years of marriage
  • Motivation by inspiration v. motivation by desperation 
  • Some powerful insights on communicating through frustration (we talk about what to focus on instead!)
  • Derick’s advice to help men really embrace the role of father and husband
  • The BIGGEST lessons they’ve learned about themselves as a result of their marriage
  • And a lot more…
