Star and I led FamilyLife’s “Art of Marriage” event at a local church this past weekend and had a blast. If you haven’t attended, you need to.
One of the most practical pieces of information shared was the tips on conflict below. Check it out…
|FOCUS ON||RATHER THAN|
|One issue||Many Issues|
|The Problem||The Person|
|Facts||Judgment of Motives|
|“I” statements||“You” Statements|
|Understanding||Who’s winning or losing|
Although following these guidelines won’t come close to fixing all your conflicts, they will help you move towards each other as you attempt to work through them.
