Marriage is a beautiful institution designed by God to be enjoyed and not endured. Sadly, this is not the case with most marriages. Many couples quickly go from the fairy-tale of the wedding day to the frustration of everyday living in marriage. I hear stories daily of how this was not what I expected, and this is not the life I want.
It’s even more frustrating when you know there is a problem but don’t know how to fix it. You have tried several times but have made no headway. One of the most typical complaints that I hear from couples directly or indirectly centres around the area of communication. Inability to understand each other’s point of view.
Being able to communicate effectively is a vital and much-needed skill. That is what this course is all about.
This course will help you to transform your communication and restore intimacy in your relationship.
By the end of this course, you will be able to: –
• Understand negative communication patterns and how they affect relationships.
