Next Marriage Course: Resolving Conflict

Alpha Marriage – Week 2 Recap: The Art of Communication

* The Importance of Talking

* The Importance of Listening

* Hindrances to Listening

and learned Principles for Effective Listening... go figure!

Some discussions require a lot of deep thought….

No matter what, we have fun and learn more about each other!
