Ep 17: A Marriage Won't Survive On Leftovers: Giving Your Spouse The Best of You with Jennie Lusko

Do you offer your husband your leftover energy, leftover joy and leftover love after a day spent serving others? Proverbs 14:1 says, A wise woman builds her house, but a foolish woman pulls it down with her own hands." As a woman, as a wife and as a mom, we have the power to build up or tear down our homes and our husbands.  

On today's episode, Jennie Lusko, wife of Pastor Levi Lusko, talks about the hardship of marriage after tragically losing their precious 5-year-old daughter, Lenya. She discusses what their quiet time looks like together, how she builds her home as well as the boundaries she has created to ensure that she has enough left for her husband, even at the end of the busiest day.
