Marriages thrive when couples talk- really talk. But meaningful, heart-level talk can be hard to come by! Kids and careers consume time and energy. Old hurts and ingrained habits breed misunderstanding and defensiveness. Too easily, marital communication gets stuck at the level of "what's for supper?" or "What's on the tube?' or "What about the kids?"- and husbands and wives miss out on experiencing what their marriage can really be.
We Need to Talk provides a set of practical, usable communication keys to develop a closer, more vital relationship. Sensitively written, (and home tested!) by a husband and wife team, this book is full of honest help and practical exercises to help you:
create space in your schedule for meaningful conversation
talk more comfortably with your mate- even if one of you is "not a talker"
build trust as you reduce misunderstandings and defensiveness
get through to a clammed-up "shellfish," a prickly "porcupine," an elusive "prairie dog," or a vegged out "couch potato"
talk frankly (but safely) about sensitive subjects- like sex
rebuild communication after a serious rift
develop a lifetime habit of heart-level communication
