Rule 083 | The Grass Is Always Greener On The Other Side Of The Street

MIF Rule 083 post graphic.jpg


In what could possibly be known as the longest-shortest move of all time, The Peppers have now (nearly) landed in the house across the street. This week they learned that leaving in a hurry is less than ideal, but that nothing says “home” like a block full of generous neighbors.

There was SO much to say in the Season 7 premier, so we’re hosting a live post-game recap on Wednesday, June 5 at 5pm PT! Tune in to FB for some exclusive deleted scenes and in the meantime, get excited for the Marriage Summit that we announced for Spring 2020!

  • Disclaimer: Anything that might accidentally sound like legal advice in this episode is NOT actually legal advice.

  • Jessie never wants to see another cardboard box as long as she lives, and you can find out why by reading this post about Love As Big As A House.

  • The Pepper’s lose their home to a landlady with no heart, but they are trying to be gracious despite the desperate wishes to stay put.

  • Jessie claims that she’s not planning on speaking to “the woman who shall not be named” but you can place your own over/under bets on how long it takes before they’ve officially made amends.

  • Learn more about the magic of The Three Kings in Episode 21.

  • This is not the first time that Jessie has had woes about moving her toiletries… Listen to Episode 16 for the backstory and say a prayer for her skincare if you think of it this Summer!

  • No surprise here, but the generosity of our neighbors is one of the things that makes us so resistant to leave!

  • The Peppers realize they’re second-guessing the security of having a real home-base. As usual, clinging to each other ends up being the best way to stay rooted in Great Love.
