WORDS; Enhancing your marriage, one conversation at a time.
How you interact with your spouse on a daily basis is the single greatest factor that establishes the type of communication climate that surrounds your marriage. It isn’t “what we communicate about that shapes a relational climate,” note communication experts, “as much as how we speak and act toward one another.” The book of Proverbs forcefully states that both life and death reside in the tongue (18:21). Just as our speech can impart life and death, it also establishes the type of marital climate you experience every day.
