Derek and I have been meeting montly with our Sr Pastors, Pastor Jim and Freida.. we get with them and connect with them about our marriage/improvements/communication etc. Well I love it. it gives us a chance to be completely honest with them and they are two of the most non judgemental people that I have had the pleasure knowing for almost the past, almost 20 years.
