In this episode, we talk about the decision to listen to what’s happening within the heart of our spouse. When life gets busy, our conversation at home becomes primarily content-based (i.e. information about the day, upcoming schedule, etc.).
Yet, it’s the process-based conversation (i.e. how we feel about what’s happening in our day) that keeps us growing as a couple and feeling connected to one another.
Sure, this is conversation that takes a little extra work, especially for those of us who weren’t taught to communicate this way. That’s because we go on autopilot to keep up with everything we’re doing, that it gets too easy to neglect our being. But you, and your spouse, deserve deeper connection.
In this episode, we talk about some very practical strategies for being quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry. If you feel stuck in your marriage, even unsure what to talk about anymore, this episode is for you.
