Episode 37 - Jay & Jess Norman

Spoken Freely Podcast

Although we’ve been home most of this year, we still have been able to stay connected to those we love thanks to our smartphones and social media. You know what I haven’t given much thought to recently? That I can still have conversations with my friends and family, but meeting new people has essentially stopped.  I met today’s guests in an unexpected way. Six days later, I sat down with fellow Texas podcasters, Jay and Jess Norman. We connected right away and I can say I have great new friends that I’ve never met in person!  The Norman’s are farmers and since I lived in America’s heartland for so many years, we bonded over sweet corn instantly! The hosts of the Moving On podcast each walked through difficult seasons of life with separation, divorce, and single-parenting. After marrying four years ago, they began blending their families. Jess and Jay speak from their hearts about the challenges of connecting with stepchildren and navigating parenting in their new family dynamic.  We talk a lot about relationships and how they’ve learned that without grace, tensions can escalate quickly and become tugs-of-war that are difficult to overcome. The Norman’s coined the hashtag #droptherope which has given me a new perspective on stopping a crucial conversation before it becomes an exchange I regret. Friends, you’re going to love Jess and Jay as much as I do, and I think you’ll learn so much wisdom from their experiences. Enjoy today’s conversation and be sure to share it with a friend!
