We have been friends with Jeremy and Audrey Roloff for a few years now. They are passionate about living for God and sharing His message. We were honored when they invited us to be on their Behind The Scenes Podcast. On the show we chatted about working together and raising a family together. We described our schedule, things that work, boundaries we have and other areas we don’t put boundaries, and we share about family bible time!
In this update on our Podcast we share about being on the Roloff’s Podcast and we also share a new fun family game we started playing in the car with our kids!

[Aaron] Hey, we’re Aaron and Jennifer Smith with Marriage After God.
[Jennifer] Helping you cultivate an extraordinary marriage.
[Aaron] And today, we just have some exciting news for you guys.
[Jennifer] Yes, this is kind of like a surprise episode. We’re so excited to share it with you.
[Aaron] Yeah, we don’t usually launch an episode on Tuesdays and this isn’t a normal episode. This is just an update to let you guys know about a few cool things that are going on.
[Jennifer] I feel like they’d be able to tell how excited we are by how fast we’re talking.
[Aaron] I know.
[Jennifer] So let’s just tone it down. Sorry you guys, we’re just excited.
[Aaron] So we did an interview a couple weeks ago with some good friend–
[Jennifer] That was so good! Are you kidding me? Did you hear that Tori in the background?
[Jennifer] Let’s just keep it.
[Aaron] Okay. So we did an interview with some friends of ours, Jeremy and Audrey Roloff. They just launched a podcast called Behind the Scenes and it’s really great, it’s been growing.
[Jennifer] Yeah, I love it because I feel like they’re just sharing from their hearts where they’re at and even in our interview, it was just like sitting down with friends, which we’re lucky ’cause we got to sit down with them live, like in person.
[Aaron] It was a lot of fun. We didn’t do it over the phone. They came to our house, we recorded the episode and that episode is live today on their podcast and the episode’s about Jennifer and I working together as a team, in business and parenting, and we advocate for oneness and unity. So it was really fun to talk about the business side of things with us.
[Jennifer] And how we do it with a growing family.
[Aaron] With a growing family and–
[Jennifer] Oh wait, does that mean we’re gonna have more? ‘Cause we already have four.
[Aaron] Yeah, sure.
[Aaron] And so we just wanted to invite you to search for their podcast and listen to that episode. It’s live today. It’s called Behind the Scenes and the episode’s with Aaron and Jennifer Smith. And so, please go check that out. And I just also wanted to let you know that tomorrow, our normal launch day, is Wednesday. And we’re launching an episode about something that is really sensitive. We talked about pornography.
[Jennifer] Yeah it was super emotional for me.
[Aaron] So be on the lookout for tomorrow’s episode with us. And then Jennifer has one little secret announcement, she didn’t tell me what it is. So we’ll find out right now what it is.
[Jennifer] It’s just something fun. So I wanted you to share with them the new game we’ve been playing. So for everyone listening who has kids, this is an awesome game. You might be semi familiar–
[Aaron] Oh, is it the variation?
[Jennifer] Yeah, it’s a variation of the game.
[Aaron] So we usually, when we’re in the car with the kids, we play I spy with my little eye, and we–
[Jennifer] We’ve been doing it for five years now.
[Aaron] Yeah, we look for something in the car, and the kids try and figure it out.
[Jennifer] And it’s fun.
[Aaron] But what’s really hard is when you’re driving, you can’t really point to things that are outside because you go by them really fast.
[Jennifer] Unless you’re in a parking lot or something.
[Aaron] So I just randomly started this variation of the game called I don’t spy with my little eye.
[Jennifer] And the kids picked it up so quick, it was so–
[Aaron] They’re actually better at that game than they are at the normal game.
[Jennifer] So let’s give them an example.
[Aaron] So I’ll say I spy with my little eye–
[Jennifer] No, I don’t spy with.
[Aaron] Oh, yeah. I don’t spy with my little eye, something… that’s hot and explode-y.
[Jennifer] A volcano.
[Aaron] Yeah! So it’s something that we don’t see, but we give hints about this idea or object or place that’s out of our view.
[Jennifer] So this is a fun one to play with a family who knows each other well. So like I know my son just has a kind of fascination with New York. New York City.
[Aaron] Oh, yeah.
[Jennifer] And so, I did one the other day where I was like I don’t spy with my little eye something green that holds a torch.
[Aaron] And he’s like–
[Both] Statue of Liberty!
[Jennifer] Or maybe Olive got it, I don’t remember.
[Aaron] Someone did.
[Jennifer] But you guys, it’s so fun! And you can literally do it–
[Aaron] It’s way more fun than the regular game.
[Jennifer] You can do it about anything.
[Aaron] You don’t have to look at it. You don’t have to see it.
[Jennifer] It’s so fun!
[Aaron] It also makes you really good at describing something that they could figure out.
[Aaron] Yeah, so–
[Jennifer] Now that I’ve mentioned it, I wonder if people have been playing this for a long time already and we’re just figuring it out.
[Aaron] There’s another name for it.
[Aaron] Like Aaron, Jennifer, that game has been around for years.
[Jennifer] I know. Well, try it. I don’t spy with my little eye.
[Aaron] Yeah. So, it’s fun and that was a good little, okay.
[Aaron] Cool, so we love you all. We just wanna hop on here, invite you to go check out Behind the Scenes podcast with Jeremy and Audrey Roloff. They interviewed us. It’s an awesome episode. You get to learn a lot of insights about Jennifer and I that we don’t usually talk about. Because we don’t often talk about the business side of our life.
[Jennifer] Yeah, working together.
[Aaron] And then, be on the lookout for our episode tomorrow where we talk about our experience with pornography in our marriage. And how God healed us from that.
[Jennifer] Last, last, last thing, thank you guys so much for just your support with this podcast.
[Jennifer] And your encouragement for us doing it. The Marriage After God podcast, and I just wanted to say thank you. I want them to know that we truly care that they’re listening.
[Aaron] We do. We love you all. We love seeing the reviews. We love seeing the comments. We love that you guys have supported us over the years, and yeah, we’re all in this together. And so, we pray for your guys’ marriages all the time. We love you and we thank you! We’ll see you next week. Actually not next week, we’ll see you tomorrow. Alright, bye!
