Marriage Tips:
  1. "Separation" and "Divorce" are two words that should never be used during an argument, disagreement, or fight. They are not words to be played with or held against one another. Marriage is for LIFE, and you made vows for better or for worse.
  2. "Fine tune the timing." While the words we use, body language and tone are important aspects of communication, sensitivity to the timing can greatly alter the outcome. Heed the Spirit when choosing your timing.
  3. Instead of prioritizing your schedule, schedule your priorities. God first, then spouse, then everything else. If you schedule your priorities, it ensures that attention is placed on what really matters.
  4. How you greet your spouse within the first minutes of reuniting after a long day can make all the difference! Take a few moments to stop what you are doing and intentionally greet your husband or wife with a bright smile and expression of joy; it can speak volumes to their heart.
  5. The key to surviving any storm in your marriage is open, honest COMMUNICATION. This means we choose to work out our differences by talking TO each other instead of talking ABOUT each other to other people, family members, airing our business on social media, or giving each other the silent treatment. Start talking and really listening to one another. There's no other way out of the hard stuff than going THROUGH!
