Every marriage has a story. Ours is no exception.
I was so excited to sit down with Mark to share a bit about our journey as well as how we went from Mark and Jill 1.0 to Mark and Jill 2.0.
- There’s no denying that over the years we have had lots of ups and downs!
- One of us grew up in a Christian home, the other didn’t.
- One grew up in an abusive home, the other didn’t.
- One avoided conflict, one reacted with anger.
- One overreacted to things in our marriage and one underreacted to things.
- We have survived infidelity.
- We have sought counseling both together and individually.
How did we move from 1.0 to 2.0?
- We had a growth mindset, not a fixed mindset
- We worked to understand how our past affects our present
- We did some new, much-needed “home internships”
- We learned the power of surrender

You’ve helped me for a long time recovering and healing within marriage. You’re both an inspiration, comfort and learning experience, in showing the perseverance and Christian love through a difficult time to the “2.1” marriage.
I like your growth mindset.
