It goes without saying that conflict is inevitable in marriage, but the way you communicate and respond in the face of conflict can either strengthen or weaken your relationship. Why? Because communication is the key to building and maintaining relationships. When communication is mishandled, every area of your relationship is negatively impacted. If it seems that you and your spouse have grown apart or are struggling to connect, the problem may be rooted in your communication styles, the way you and your spouse interact in the face of conflict.
In this interactive workshop, you will learn how to take the frustration out of your conversations and identify specific communication styles or patterns that wreak havoc on your relationship. You will learn to communicate in a way that you can be heard and understood. You will receive practical tools to help you and your spouse discuss difficult topics in a way that will strengthen your relationship and promote healthy solutions to those recurrent themes/issues. You will be guided through problem-solving techniques, techniques to de-escalate arguments, and how to eliminate things that get in the way of your ability to communicate effectively. You will also be shown how to incorporate key principles that foster truthful and loving communication.
The interactive nature of the Heart to Heart Communication workshop gives you the opportunity to practice the skills being taught in a non-threatening and non-disclosing way so you will be able to experience and process the material in a way that is meaningful to your unique circumstances.
Don’t miss this opportunity to reconnect, enhance your relationship, and move forward better equipped for success. "Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ." - Ephesians. 4:15
