Episode 6 – Communication 101
Welcome back to “Marriage to the Max”, the weekly marriage podcast hosted by Brett and Kellie Hurst of Home Encouragement. This week, we discuss “Communication 101”. This is a vital topic for most couples. Are you aware that the average amount of quality conversation per day for married couples is 3 minutes? Wow! Really? That staggers the mind, frankly. However, we’re willing to bet that, with just a little bit of effort, most couples can improve dramatically on increasing that amount of conversation.
You should know that communication struggles are extremely common among married couples. This is why this subject of more effective communication will be a topic that “Marriage to the Max” will visit and revisit frequently. Fortunately, effective communication skills can be learned and applied fairly easily that will typically make things smoother for couples. We hope to encourage you with helpful insights to remind spouses how important it is to pray and work consistently for better and clearer communication between one another.
As always, we invite you to share your insights and further questions with us. Our hope is that these podcasts might help you enjoy your marriage experience more and more. Your feedback is always appreciated. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how we’re doing!
