One reader asked a question I get from time to time that is near and dear to my heart, and I wanted to address it from my perspective right here, anonymously of course (and slightly edited to further protect her identity):
I also spent an entire episode of the Confessions of a Terrible Husband podcast following up on this, which you can hear here:
Susie talks with me about listening well, learning about your spouse, and loving them in a way that promotes stronger relationships.
She shares stories from her personal life and book and talks about some pretty cool bonuses for folks who buy her book around the release date, so tune in for those details, too.
It’s a fun chat so be sure to check it out. And also be sure to connect with Susie about her book, which you can find through the link at the top of the post, on Amazon, and pretty much every other retailer around!
I really enjoyed our chat and the book, which I read in less time than it takes to watch a baseball game on TV.
I firmly believe that Gretchen’s book can have a similar impact on relationships to The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman because it not only helps you understand yourself, but it also provides insight into the mind of your spouse.
The book emphasizes that there are several ways to make or break habits and not all of them will work for you all the time based on your personal tendencies. Gretchen introduces the four tendencies that each of us have, which she calls the “Four Tendencies” and which describe how a person responds to expectations.
Marcus Kusi shares how picking a family theme can form a foundation for success
This is a post by Marcus Kusi, from Our Peaceful Family, who shares a simple story how and why to choose a family theme. It’s a nice, simple concept that can provide a lot of value for making family choices moving forward by providing the basis upon which to make tough decisions by asking ‘does this fit within our family theme.’ Check it out!
Remember the last time you had that delicious meal from your favorite restaurant?
I bet you could describe the taste in just one word if you were asked to.
(Even if it was 10 years ago)
And could easily describe it into detail if needed; from the smell and touch, to the taste it left in your mouth.
But have you ever wondered how people described your family?
What thoughts come to your mind?
A happy, peaceful, chaotic, or the family that can not be described.
Chances are you probably cannot describe your family in one word.
