Ep. 46 | The Story of Us with Andrew Van Kirk

It can be really easy to see couples on social media and assume their lives must be perfect: perfect marriage, perfect kids, perfect house, and so on. But the reality is often a lot different than the stories we make up about other people in our minds.

To kick off a new monthly marriage series on the podcast that we hope will deeply encourage you and give you the tools to build a better relationship, I’m joined by my husband Andrew to give you a raw, candid, behind-the-scenes look at how we met, fell in love, got married and everything that's transpired in our lives over the past 13 years.

It’s been a long journey to get where we are and we aren’t leaving any stone unturned we hope to remind you that, no matter what you’ve walked through in life or marriage, you are NOT alone and with God, anything is possible.

What You'll Hear:

  • The story of how we met and fell in love 13 years ago

  • How we managed a long-distance relationship for 2 years

  • Our stressful experience dealing with disapproving family

  • The bumpy road to us finally getting married

  • What events led to Kelsey experiencing ongoing PTSD and panic/anxiety attacks

  • All the places we’ve lived and our experience navigating several moves

  • Why we ended up deciding to file bankruptcy

  • Our journey with growing our family (ie: having LOTS of babies!)

  • The heartbreaking story of our miscarriage

  • Our experience walking through the divorces of both sets of our parents

  • How we’ve dealt with pornography and betrayal within our marriage

  • What we believe the keys to a successful marriage are (hint: LOTS, and lots of grace!)
