How can newly married couples develop excellent communication skills?
When spouses feel safe enough to share areas of weakness, they have reached a vulnerable phase in opening up their spirit and allowing their partner to see who they really are, say Leslie and Les Parrott in their article for MARRIAGE PARTNERSHIP magazine. Becoming active listeners, choosing our words with care, speaking the truth in love, and using our words to build each other up in Christ are all principles of communication that are based in Scripture.
What communication skills should newlyweds develop? What communication difficulties do married couples often face? How might good communication help you to better understand your spouse? How should you best explain your thoughts and feelings to your spouse? How should married couples work through disagreements? This study will investigate scriptural principles of communication in an effort to answer these questions.
