Headed to a Marriage Conference

I'm making a quick trip to Bakersfield to teach at a marriage conference over the next couple days. It's just Friday and Saturday; I'll be back to preach on Sunday. thought I'd try out a few of the things I intend to say on you.

Some key points about communication:

  • Good communication takes humility. We must let go of the need to be right and embrace doing right.
  • Check what you hear. Don't assume you understand the question or the comment the first time -- take time to clarify what is behind the comment or question.
  • Listen for feelings as well as facts.
  • Learn to express what you desire. It gives your spouse the ability to be successful at loving you.

What about you? What have you learned about good communication?
