James and Anita Stanfield recently celebrated their thirtieth wedding anniversary. I was fortunate to be present at their renewal ceremony and I was so inspired by their love - not only for each other, but for all of humanity, that I asked them if they would do an interview about their relationship. Graciously, they agreed.
In this interview we hear the lovely story of how they met and we get a glimpse into what life was like for the first 25 (or so) years of their marriage. Then we are blessed to hear about the choices they made, as individuals and together as a couple, after reconnecting to the Ageless Wisdom and becoming Students of the Livingness, which they say was integral to them deepening their relationship rather than drifting apart. You'll love listening to this interview.
I had previously arranged to interview Anita on her own - and then after witnessing the renewal of their vows, knew we had to also hear from both of them. You can listen to Anita's interview here.
Lieke was from Holland. Josh lived in New Zealand. Yet their paths crossed, not in person but in cyber space. In the age of technology this is a perfectly normal place to bump into your future partner. As the relationship blossomed, they had just a few little logistical problems to work out, like how to arrange to meet in person. Eventually when the relationship hit full bloom, they were then faced with other logistical decisions like which country to live in. Join me on this delightful journey of Josh and Lieke falling in love and making decisions about their future. By the way, they decided on Belgium - where English is not one of the three national languages. They make it all sound so easy.
Gayle is innately curious about people; how they see the world, how they position themselves in the world and why they do what they do. She loves interviewing people for these same reasons.
