    Thanks, Jayson! As usual, some great pts made in a short amount of time. Helpful to hear you both discuss how you’re impacting each other in the present moment, and something to put to use immediately – love that- in all relationships. Awesome!

    The connection between Jayson and Joshua was strong and I loved hearing them discuss sharing impact. I’d love to hear more of the two of you discussing relationship topics as well. Although I’m happy to listen to this one several more times over as there was so much in it for me. Thanks.
