Hey there, friends! It's Chris and Melissa, and we are so excited to be back with you for another episode of the family brand podcast. You know, let's be real, marriage can be tricky, and ours is no exception.
One thing we've been discussing lately is the importance of being true to our word. It's about doing what we say we're going to do, and it's a lesson that can really benefit our families. Sometimes, keeping our word can be a challenge, especially when life gets busy, but it's so important to make the effort.
Take our recent experience, for example. Our son, Trip, really wanted a new basketball hoop to practice with at home. We agreed to get one this week, but as the days flew by, we found ourselves at the end of the week with no hoop. Instead of brushing it off and delaying the purchase, we decided to honor our word and buy the hoop that day.
Putting it together tested our patience (and nearly our marriage! haha), but in the end, we're glad we followed through. It's essential to practice being true to our word, not only for ourselves but also to set an example for our kids.
So, what about you? How do you ensure you keep your word and teach your family the value of integrity? Remember, it's not about being perfect; it's about making an effort and learning from our experiences. Let's keep the conversation going and support each other in our journey to build strong, happy families. Reach out to us or join the Family Brand Program today - links below!
