So if you’re courting, engaged, married or preparing for when you get there this is the place for you! In previous episodes we talked about being Engaged, Courting, and Married. During this episode we will discuss where to start as you build your foundation together. We’ve consulted a few local builders regarding the steps they use when they start building. They all agree that the foundation is the most important process and after talking to them, they seem to follow the same procedure. They: pick a location survey the lot to make sure it’s a solid ground Start digging Install footings for stabilization Pour concrete let it cure, treat with a sealer/ barrier to keep moisture and other things out, then they Start building! This made us think more about how foundations are built together in Marriage. Today, we want to give you some practical tools to keep in your tool box to use for building, maintenance,or repairs to your foundation.                                           2 Main things are: Love/ Respect & Having a Maintenance Plan.  Your Maintenance plan also includes: “How to” guides/books Seminars/workshops Music Marital Check in Don’t say the D word Counseling Remember when building your foundation together, Consistency is key, willing to adapt and make adjustments to changes in the plan is important. you’re stronger building your foundation together!
