My guest today is my good friend, Jessica Frew, who is a wife, ex-wife, mom, and step-mom. We are talking about the challenges she has faced and how she has come out of them even stronger. She talks about her two marriages and how she, her husband and her ex started a podcast together called, Husband in Law. They discuss how they have created a healthy family and working relationship with each other and how they have chosen to show up for their daughter!
She talks about how to keep fighting even when life deals you a seemingly impossible hand, and how feeling love, respect and safety with your spouse can truly create that emotional and intimate connection we all long for. With this beautiful connection, couples are able to express themselves and be vulnerable and share those parts of themselves with each other that otherwise might feel uncomfortable.
In her practice, she helps women understand that they are worthy as they are and to stop selling themselves short. She talks about the importance of understanding your self worth and taking ownership of any situation you’re given in life to start showing up as the person you want to be. Once you understand this concept, it doesn’t matter what anyone else does or thinks!
You can connect with Jessica on Facebook at @jessicafrew, Instagram at @husband_in_law or on her podcast, Husband in Law.

Today is the second episode in our Conversations with Interracial Couples Series and we are chatting with my friends and colleagues Sarah and Alex Dumas.
Sarah and Alex have been married for over 10 years and have 2 beautiful children. They are sharing how they have dealt with racism over the years, both from complete strangers and within their families, all while staying true to their “weird and fun” personalities.
Even though their families are very different, they both have the same vision of what being committed to each other and to their marriage looks like. They are setting an example for their children of how family is supposed to be by laughing and loving each other every second they get. “We are weird, fun, and we treat people with respect”.
Alex says, “It is never what you are called, but what you answer to that is important.”
