Episode #48 – Jim and Cindy Wigdahl


In this week’s episode we sit down with Jim and Cindy Wigdahl. Jim and Cindy have been friends for over 30 years, but have only been married for 4 or 5 years. Their story is amazing and sad and full of hope all at the same time. It will open your heart. I hope you love it.

In this conversation, we discuss:

  • What it’s like to marry your friend of 30 years after not seeing them in nearly 2 decades.
  • Jim explains what it’s like to be single till your mid-50’s… and be happy about it.
  • The feeling of peace that results when you choose to be with someone.
  • The importance of your community supporting your relationship.
  • What it’s like to have a short engagement, and end up really courting and getting to know each other after marriage.
  • Jim discusses how his concept of God has changed and grown since he has been married.

Favorite quotes from this episode:

“Don’t ultimately hesitate to give your life away. Don’t hesitate to release the thing that you cling to, because you will find that it will move into a better thing. And you will find yourself more fortunate because of it.”
-Jim Wigdahl

“Marriage will break you. It will destroy you. And that’s a good thing. Because it will then put you together in a way that is richer, and deeper, and you will be more alive than you ever thought you could be.”
-Jim Wigdahl

    I listened to this conversation today (3/2017) and found it to be entertaining, inspiring, and helpful. (thank you). I have entered my second marriage in the last 18 months and moved across a few states leaving career, friendships, and a beloved life to join my new husband in a unique place & tiny space like Jim&Cindy. Lots of oh, okay, yes, um, I get it, me too, heart nodding, feeling grateful, as I drove & listened. Thank you.
