When we first met about starting a podcast, we had no idea what to call it. Every name we came up with sounded cheesy.
We didn’t want to label it just as a parenting podcast because we talk about marriage too. It needed to reflect family life, no matter what stage you may be in or what you may be going through–married, divorced, soon-to-be married, single, grandparents, parents and blended families.
We also needed a title that people could relate to. We admire people who admit their mistakes and yet, push on. Our hope is that we live that out.
When the time came to launch the podcast, we didn’t have a name we loved. So we settled on a name people could easily find–The Dr. Josh and Christi podcast. Pretty creative, right?
When season 1 ended, we decided to sit down, read listener stories, and find the themes that resonated most with you. It was time to give the podcast a name that more clearly fit what it’s all about–our walking alongside one another–through the good, bad, and sometimes ugly moments–to be families who live, love, and lead well.
That’s when it occurred to us that whatever you may be going through, the picture frames in your home reflect those you talk about and love the most. The people who bring you the most happiness and joy. On the contrary, the people in those frames can also bring you the most frustration and uncertainty. Yet, no matter what, the people in your frames have your back. And you have theirs. That’s precisely what family is all about. Regardless of who’s in your frame, you’re in it together. They are your legacy.
That’s when it clicked…
