“Authentic is always right. And real: it works,” says Bo Stern, Pastor of Interns and Life Groups at Westside Church in Bend, OR. “Don’t be afraid of hard conversations.” Learning to communicate feelings and to disagree in a healthy way is essential to the integrity of a marriage. “Get really good at honest conversations really soon.”
Bo has written a book on suffering called Beautiful Battlefields about her husband’s struggle with ALS.
