As a wife and mom, how can you thrive during the "middle years" of your life? On this Focus on the Family broadcast, Lisa-Jo Baker explains how she has come to terms with her own middle years through a renewed perspective on her feminine beauty, which includes an acceptance of how her body has been impacted after birthing three children. She describes how she has learned to appreciate the "everyday ordinary" in her marriage and to recognize how it is still easy for she and her husband to misunderstand one another even though they've been together for more than 20 years. And she shares some powerful stories about parenting her teens during this stage of life – learning how to listen more, "freak out" less, and recognize the necessity of encouraging her kids when they struggle. Jim Daly's wife, Jean, joins the conversation to add valuable insights from her own experiences during her middle years.
