Episode 176 – Marriage In The Middle With Dorothy Greco

Episode sponsored by

Are midlife marriages destined to descend into endless crises, distance, and unhappiness? Contrary to the current cultural narrative, no! Marriage in the Middle normalizes the challenges and surprises of this time frame and then comes alongside couples to help them thrive. Through story, Scripture, and hard-won wisdom, Dorothy Greco offers readers and listeners hope that midlife can be a season of recalibrating, shoring up vulnerabilities, and imagining new ways to create a mutually fulfilling marriage. Dorothy joins our host, Christopher J Harris, for an incredibly warming and insightful discussion on marriage in general and then marriages who are seasoned specifically.  This conversation will leave you with that sense that you just saw down with your best friend, a counselor/therapists, and a Pastor all at the same time…well…because you did. You’ll smile…you’ll laugh…but you may get a little misty-eyed…and you’ll want to take notes as well.

Since graduating from Boston University in 1983, Dorothy has been working as a photographer, author, writer, and speaker. She feels equally at home speaking in front of hundreds or standing behind her camera without saying a word. Her words and images offer hope and encouragement to those longing for healing, reconciliation, and joy.

Dorothy’s writing has been featured in Christianity Today, Missio Alliance, MOPs, Relevant Magazine, Christians for Biblical Equality, The Mudroom, Sojourners, Biola Center for Marriage and Family, Christine Cain’s Propel for Women, Perennial Generation, Patheos, and The Englewood Review of BooksMaking Marriage Beautiful, her first book, was published by David C Cook in January of 2017. Her second book, Marriage in the Middle, was published by InterVarsity Press in September of 2020.

Past and present photography clients include: The National GeographicNew England Home MagazineThe New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe, Yankee Magazine, Mass General Hospital, Harvard University, Boston University, Knopf Publishers, Lexington Christian Academy, Boston Trinity Academy, Arnold Arboretum, Houghton Mifflin, and many more. Dorothy has won several awards from Communication Arts Photography Annual and National Press Photographers.

Dorothy Greco is also a member of Redbud Writers’ Guild and the Pelican Project. Dorothy and her husband, Christopher, have been married for 29 years. They have three grown sons and two amazing daughters-in-law. They love walking on beaches, traveling, seeing great theater, and kayaking.
