The Joy of Teamwork in Marriage: Interview with Ashleigh Slater

If your marriage could use a boost of joy right now, this interview with Ashleigh Slater on the joy of teamwork in marriage may be just what you need.

Ashleigh is the author of Team Us: Marriage Together and the editor of Ungrind, an online webzine churning out encouragement for Christian women. She’s real, authentic, and funny, and I know you’ll enjoy this interview as much as I did.

So feel free to play the video in the background while you’re getting dinner ready, running errands on your lunchbreak, folding laundry, or soaking in the hot tub. (Yeah. Right. Did you just smirk? That makes two of us. But perhaps listening while putting on makeup is more realistic.)

If you’re a video-skimmer (no shame in that! life is busy, mama), here’s a summary so you can jump around if you wish:

  • A little about Ashleigh, her family, and how she came to write a book– 0:55
  • The one thing you can do right now in your marriage to enjoy your spouse immediately– 4:44
  • How folding shirts can undue your marriage–or build it up– 7:03
  • Job loss, tragedy, and finances can be the biggest stressors on a marriage but they can also bring you and your spouse closer together– 9:51
  • There’s no “I” in team, but what if you’re the only one working on your marriage? —16:52
  • Even the best of us are overwhelmed in marriage, but here’s how to find joy in your marriage anyway– 20:19
  • And we each share one thing we appreciate about our spouse (which ends up being the same quality!)– 24:00

If you want to get Ashleigh’s book, you can get it here on Amazon. Because all of us (newlyweds and those in your golden years) can learn to be better spouses.

And maybe I’ll just start folding laundry differently, too. 🙂
