Part 2: Be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry.
But what about when we do get angry, when we do speak and when we don't listen?
Well, lets talk about how to do this better. We can all find healthier ways to process afterwards or avoid from the beginning.
Beth is sharing with us on the second half of her Journey interview how they learned to fight well and what steps and tools they use to make sure their conflicts draw them closer rather than tear them apart.
Part I: If you've felt insecure about yourself, you know the icky feeling that hangs around and corrodes you from the inside.
In marriage it's lethal, because you and your spouse are trying to put up a facade and it just brings distance. It robs you both of the connectedness you're meant to share.
Today's guest shares how she started out very insecure in her marriage.
Conflict would scare her and she felt that if she were honest with him, he'd reject her.
Their marriage had a rocky journey and she credits God for bringing them through, otherwise she said they'd probably be divorced.
And now they're about to celebrate their 30 year anniversary! Hear how they made it through, and what she's learned.
