Your communication shapes the environment of your marriage 

 

Good communication is the mark of a growing marriage. It sounds much too simplistic, but it’s true.  Communication shapes the environment of your marriage.  Great marriages are built on clarity rather than obscurity.  Some would say communication in a marriage can be compared to the oxygen delivered to our lungs. 

When the flow of oxygen is of good quality and in constant supply, our lungs can function extremely well.  But when oxygen ceases to enter our lungs, it is only a matter of time before our lungs shut down and we cease to exist. 

When communication is healthy, the marriage has life.  Conversely, when communication in a marriage is limited or nonexistent, it is only a matter of time before the marriage ceases to exist.  Poor communication can’t produce a growing marriage.  No one wants to be part of a relationship where mystery, uncertainty, and a lack of transparency are the norm. 

When the flow of oxygen is of good quality and in constant supply, our lungs can function extremely well.  But when oxygen ceases to enter our lungs, it is only a matter of time before our lungs shut down and we cease to exist.  What do we desire for our marriage?  What are we seeking to create within our relationship? 

Most of us desire to live within an environment where the purist form of communication not only exists, but flows regularly throughout the relationship with our spouse.  We may not use these exact words, but we do want to experience a healthy exchange of words and ideas as we share our lives with the one we love.  Why?  The reason is quite simple: 

Your communication shapes the environment of your marriage

 

Sometimes our communication gets lost in translation.  There are several reasons for this unfortunate reality.  Culture, language, education, difficult experiences, fears, and family traditions are just some of the factors affecting the communication with our spouse. 

Although our intentions may be pure, what we say and what we mean can be interpreted in two distinct ways.  With that said, you can see why learning to communicate effectively with your spouse is so important to building a strong marriage.

This course is based on the timeless supracultural principles of the Bible, God's Word. Since God is the author of marriage and life itself, our conviction is that the best plan for our lives, and for our marriage, is to align both of them with God's ways. Marriage is a picture of the relationship between Jesus and His church. We teach these amazing principles out of an overflow of gratitude, humility, and a deep love for our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Together is better. We encourage couples to watch the videos, work through the activities, and answer questions together in a relaxed environment. Part of the design for this course is to stimulate conversation and application after each session.
Spreading out the videos over a few weeks is the best approach. We recommend picking two or three nights during the week, giving yourself at least an hour to allow for open conversation and reflection.
Yes. We want each spouse to have their own workbook and complete all fill-in-the-blanks, activities, and application questions. The reason for this is surprisingly simple. The more you write and engage with the content, the more you will get out of this course.
Expect to be challenged in your thinking as it relates to your role in the marriage relationship. As you separate generous amounts of time to review what your spouse wrote down during the activity time or personal application time, expect to discover new insights. As you do, ask additional questions to deepen your understanding.
