Getting Personal: Following Up with Lacy and Darrell’s Journey

This episode, we’re following up with one of our ‘Getting Personal’ couples, Lacy and Darrell. If you haven’t heard our previous episodes with them (“Getting Personal: Lacy and Darrell” and “The Journey and the Struggle, Following Up with Lacy and Darrell”) be sure to listen in to them first before tuning in to this one.

It’s been another couple of months since we last spoke with Lacy and Darrell, so we wanted to check in and see how they were both doing — separately and together as a unit. Since the last time we spoke, they’ve been struggling a bit. Lots of real issues from both of their pasts have been coming up for them and they’re both fighting for the relationship that they want. As we’ve mentioned before, I’m so, so grateful that these couples we speak with are allowing us to be a fly on the wall and listen in on their conversations. And I really hope that as you listen to the journeys of the couples we share on this show that you open yourself up to the ideas and tools we bring up, and perhaps, use them in your own life as well.
