134. Jan Peterson | A Life Well Lived

This week we’re continuing in our Mentor Couples series leading up to the launch of our new book, The Rhythm of Home, releasing June 4!

So many of the rhythms that have carried us as a couple and as a family over the years, God has taught us through these amazing couples he placed along our path, and we are so excited to share with you some of the most helpful conversations we’ve had with some of the wisest couples we know. Some new, some old that have been incredibly valuable to us along the way! 

This week we’re celebrating the anniversary of one of our favorite episodes of all time. Back in April of 2019, Jenni and I had the incredible honor of sitting down with the lovely Jan Peterson, wife of beloved pastor & author Eugene Peterson, for what none of us realized would be her very last interview.  Shortly after our time together, her health began a rapid decline, and she went home to be with Jesus on Friday, May 10, 2019.⠀

To say we were blessed by our time with Jan would be a vast understatement.  It is a gift we will treasure forever. Jan had us cracking up, tearing up, and in complete awe of a life well lived. ⠀

So today, we celebrate Jan and Eugene, and all they taught us through their life together of what it truly means to live life well. Listen in.
