Lost in Translation
The following video, called Lost in Translation, is about the difficulty that couples can have communicating with each other. In the video, this couple will actually say one thing, but they are thinking another. I know I’m guilty of that!!
The take-away for improving communication within our marriages is to practice asking questions and listening! Grant and I will be on our computers and talk to one another at the same time. I know that’s not ideal, but it has become such a habit! We need to put down the lap tops and tech gadgets and look and talk to each other. What a concept! 🙂 But seriously, how sad is it that we’ve allowed technology to overtake our lives like this??? That’s where First Things First Comes in!
