You may have the same concerns as well. You have great intentions, but your intentions don’t always play out the way you hope or expect. It leaves you with a little uncertainty, a little seed of doubt about whether your kids will be better off because of you or completely jacked up.

How to Get on the Same Page with Your Spouse

One of the biggest challenges in marriage is being on the same page with your spouse. Many couples have asked how to get on the same page with your spouse.

How to Get On The Same Page With Your Spouse by Jackie Bledsoe, Jr. - JackieBledsoe.com - Growing Family Leaders

When two different people, from two different backgrounds, usually with two different ways of doing things come together, be on the same page is no easy task.
