Ep. 66 : Our Love Story, Part 2

We are Jeff and Terra Mattson, a husband and wife team who is helping leaders live with integrity. We started @living_wholehearted ten years ago to bring professional counseling and consulting to leaders who felt alone in the work they do both at home and in their work spaces. Now, we have a team of professionals, books, @mycourageousgirls, and this podcast. Though we share a passion for people, we are oldest children trying to play nice in our marriage. (wink) Our humanity gets in the way, just like yours. But we have learned a few things over our 23 years together. In episode #65, we share how we fell in love and decided to marry. We met at  @seattle_pacific and resisted the “ring-by-spring” phenomenon of Christian universities, marrying one week after Terra’s graduation! In this episode, you’ll find Jeff tearing up as he shares the impact of his grandparents after 73 years of marriage. Coming from a divorced home, their example is the one that continues to inspire our marriage today. Whether marriage, dating, or wanting to be married, there is something in this episode for you. Lean into the hope that though relationships are hard, they are worth it! Read More

About Living Wholehearted

We define a leader as anyone with a following. Whether you are a parent or a CEO, or both, how you lead matters. When a leader lives with integrity, everyone in their wake benefits. And when they don't, everyone in their wake pays, it's just a matter of time. We are a husband and wife team HELPING LEADERS of all types LIVE WITH INTEGRITY through Biblical, Clinical, and Relational Wisdom. The Living Wholehearted Podcast is filled with grace, hope, and practical tools to help you in every relationship that matters most to you in your home, work, and community. Become a leader who is shrinking their integrity gap between what you say and how you actually live. Join us in the movement of becoming a Wholehearted Leader!
