HMAY?! 035| Our Last Episode
In this episode of #HowMarriedAreYou, you get the raw and ugly of life in the Henry house right now. Yvette had a whole discussion planned for this week's episode of HMAY, but given a conversation we had earlier in the day of this recording it would have seemed so unauthentic. So, here we are in raw form, hopefully modeling a healthy way to discuss the state of each of our hearts as it relates to our marriage right now. We discuss Mark Driscoll's three types of marriages: Back to Back, Shoulder to Shoulder and Face to Face. We discuss what stage we're at and so much more. Let us know in the comment section below which type you think describes the current stage of your marriage/relationship? We are now on YouTube!!!

HMAY?! 034| Is He Man Enough?!
Yvette listened to a recent podcast (linked below) in which the topic of masculinity vs. manhood came up. In this episode of #HowMarriedAreYou, we discuss the difference between the two. We explore ways that we've been informing our sons' masculinity and manhood in our parenting, and look ahead to ways we could be better or more contentious of how we are doing that. Let us know your thoughts on this topic. How has masculinity and manhood been shaped in your life?  Latest Episode of Beleaf in Fatherhood: https://youtu.be/q1o443Lj1v8 The Red Couch Podcast Episode Referenced:  https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-red-couch-podcast-with-propaganda-and-alma/id1231183364?i=1000434437096 The BIF Episode where Theo "sat Glen down:" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XI67TfvGkjk&feature=youtu.be As you guys can hear, our set has been getting upgrades with each episode.

HMAY?! 033| She's High Maintenance
What does it mean to be high maintenance anyway?! In this episode of #HowMarriedAreYou, Glen brings up all the receipts of how Yvette is high maintenance. She denies any such qualifications, but what do you all think? Does Glen have enough evidence to call Yvette "high maintenacne?" How would you all describe someone who is high maintenance? Again, we'd like to thank those of you who have been able to contribute to the "collection plate." We were able to purchase a more comfortable chair for Yvette as you can see.

HMAY?! 024| Regrets of Our Engagement!
One of the things we love about the listeners of this podcast is that you’re not all married. In this episode of #HowMarriedAreYou, we are specifically talking to those of you who are engaged to be married or plan to get married one day sooner or later. We reflect on our engagement process to share what we would have done differently, lessons we learned, and the things we would suggest everyone do when engaged and planning a wedding. It was such a long time ago, so let us know if we should do a part two! There may have been some things we left out. What specific topics did we not discuss that you would like to hear us talk about? If you are married, then share some wisdom from your engagement experience that you think our listeners need to know! Also, as you we shared in a previous podcast, our word for the year is “Celebrate!” January set the tone for a ton of celebration! One thing we’re celebrating is Glen’s nomination for a Shorty Award. To be nominated is such a huge honor in the world of social media. Beleaf in Fatherhood has been nominated for Content of the Year in the category of “Parenting/Family.” While it is an honor to be nominated, we’d be practicing false humility if we said it wouldn’t be an even greater honor to win. Your vote would be so appreciated! Please follow the link below to cast your vote! If this is something you really believe in, please share the opportunity to vote with everyone you know! Thank you so much! As always, we’re honored to have your ears and your attention! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Vote at the Shorty Awards Website!  We are now on YouTube!!!

HMAY? 012 My son told me "I don't spend enough time w/ family"
Something we'd like to instill in our children from a young age is that they can talk to us. We want them to feel comfortable coming to us to communicate their feelings, thoughts and opinions. Simultaneously, we want them to understand that while we are receptive to their expression, we are still their parents and we are responsible for their growth and development and will respond as such with Love. In This Episode, we share how Theo (our oldest) approached Glen about his work/life balance. We react and recollect the conversation when Theo called Glen out about how he's doing as a Father.

HMAY? 001: Kid's Reaction to Parents PDA
As a #parent, we quickly figure out that our kids are a reflection of us by looks, thoughts, words AND deeds. In this episode of #HowMarriedAreYou, we share how we have been very intentional about our #kids seeing us display affection to one another. However, a recent incident has us wondering if we should tone it down a bit. We both come from two different upbringings, so we don't necessarily feel like we have a solid example of what parental #PDA looks like. What do you think?
