Today we’re chatting with Quinn Kelly about staying connected with your spouse after having kids. Quinn is a licensed marriage and family therapist, wife of 14 years, and a mother of four wild but adorable boys, so I knew she would be the perfect person to chat with. She has a blog called Sanctification and Spitup centered on faith and parenting, a podcast called the Renew You Podcast, and a faith Conference series for women called Renew, and she has written many articles for Baby Chick!

This topic about staying connected with your spouse after having children is super important to us. We know that many things change after you have a baby, and our relationships can be one of them. Sometimes it’s for the better, and sometimes for the worse. 🙁 We wanted to know what we could do to strengthen our relationship with our spouse, so we had to talk to Quinn to share her amazing knowledge with us.

During the episode, Quinn mentioned her top 5 books that she recommends:

  1. The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman
  2. Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child by Dr. John Gottman
  3. The Road Back to You by Cron and Stabile
  4. Parenting With Love and Logic by Cline and Fay
  5. Daring Greatly by Brené Brown
