14 years married, 13 seasons in the NFL, 6 kids, and life on the road has helped Luke and Katy McCown discover some much-needed wisdom in marriage we’re so glad they were willing to share with us in this Dive Deep Interview!

Please note: The McCown’s live out in the country and don’t have the best internet connection. There are occasional distortions in the sound due to this, but this is a rich interview that is worth dealing with those occasional blips.

Talk About It

When does our pace of decision-making cause conflict for us?
How do we do at making concessions to our natural bent to accommodate the other person’s natural bent?
Is there any way I can ask you better questions?
Are we living out our vision for our marriage and/or our family? Is there anything we need to adjust in order to do that?

Think About It

Do I take my spouse’s differences personally?
Do I believe the best in my spouse?
Have I been intentional about “leaving and cleaving?” Do I realize that my parents and my spouse’s parents are now extended family and not immediate family anymore and my allegiance has to be to my marriage over extended family.
Am I willing to leave my children to spend time with my spouse?
