#006: Connecting Emotionally

Today we're talking about how to use the skill of empathy to show understanding to your spouse & connect emotionally. Instead of talking about reflective listening or using a speaker-listener technique, it's important to understand that communication in marriage is more about connecting emotionally than it is about technique. 

*This episode is the second in a 4-part series on communication in marriage.

#005: How to Really Listen

How to really listen...sounds pretty basic, right?! But today we're actually covering 3 steps that have to happen in our own minds & hearts first if we want to become great listeners. 

  1. Remind yourself: "My spouse has an equally valid & legitimate way of thinking, feeling, & reasoning."

  2. Put your own perspective on hold.

  3. Get curious about your partner's inner world.

Tune in over the next 15 minutes for a quick coaching session, action step, & prayer for your marriage!
