The EvaWYN Podcast

EPISODE 24 | PROS OF BEING IN A RELATIONSHIP ~ A Valentine’s Day Special Pt. 2
On Episode 24 of the EvaWYN Podcast, we discuss the pros of being in a relationship! We discuss the Love and Companionship that is built and maintained in a relationship. Being in a (healthy) relationship creates an environment where you are supported, assisted and loved, in both good times and bad. We are able to get through the difficult stages and moments of life when we have someone by our side that we trust and can depend on. We discuss why being in a relationship is the first step to build a legacy, raise children, and leave our mark here on earth. The genuine intimacy of a relationship allows us to build a deep and meaningful connection. This is important because it adds great meaning and purpose in our life, and that is what continues to drive and fuel us as humans to thrive. Relationships are risks, but a great gain when done correctly. Being in a relationship allows you to learn relationship skills that are more than important for your success in all areas of your life. These skills include compromise, selflessness, empathy, forgiveness, kindness, and the list goes on and on. We hope you enjoy another EvaWYN Episode!

EPISODE 22 | 10 Keys To Finding The Right Man or Woman For You!
EVAWYN IS BACK IN ACTION! This is our very first episode of the year, and we are here to drop some gems on what we believe are the major keys to finding the right partner for you! Our 21st century dating culture has left many feeling exhausted, frustrated, inadequate, and hopeless in the possibility of finding a future husband or wife. Many unfortunately end up giving up along the way or become endlessly consumed with our Western hookup culture. We believe that most people still believe in the institution of marriage, and desire to be in a long-term, monogamous relationship. However, we have not transitioned to a place in our society to openly admit that most of us feel lost and don’t have any sense of direction to achieve our goal of a long-lasting relationship and eventual marriage success. Through many discussions and conversations, we have created the 10 keys to finding the right man or woman for you. It isn’t a one size fit all, but we do hope that you can utilize these keys to help find the right partner for you. Remember that it is a journey, enjoy the ride & don’t give up on love! 1. HEAL 2. Know your history 3. Know yourself 4. Be clear on your wants and needs (and know the difference) 5. Understand the needs and wants of your future partner 6. Be REALISTIC, not idealistic 7. Become the best version of yourself 8. Put yourself on the market 9. Be intentional 10. Be patient (and proactive) We hope you enjoy this episode, stay tuned for more!

EPISODE 16 | ALL ABOUT THE 5 LOVE LANGUAGES ~ Which one(s) do you speak?
On the 16th episode of the EvaWYN Podcast, we discuss the concept of the 5 LOVE LANGUAGES!!! According to Gary Chapman, there are five love languages for individuals to give and receive love: words of affirmation, quality time, acts of service, physical touch, and receiving gifts. Many of the issues experienced by romantic couples can be attributed to a misalignment in how each partner gives and/or receives love. We get into a deep dive of the five love languages, and our individual results to the love language quiz! We discuss the similar and differing ways we express and give love, and how that impacts our relationship. We found that having a clear understanding of your love language (and your partners!) can result in daily relationship success once put into practice!
