107-JII: Glued Together But Separate Journeys with Ruth Buezis

26 Jul

PII: We’re one flesh but clearly we’re different people. How does that work? The Bible tells us “therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh,” Gen 2:24. How do we do that practically?

We’re listening in to the second half of my interview with Ruth about what it means to let our husband journey alongside us. And be united at the same time.
