Need Marriage Help? Pre-Marriage Advice?

Here's a note about marriage from our friend, Robin Tramble:

Communication and Ping Pong
Being married for almost 29 years in June has afforded me some opportunities for "processing" in various areas of my personal and spiritual development. One area I have found to be a challenge in many marriages, relationships for that matter is the area of communication. Dr. Philip Goudeaux states..... "Marriages have failed because of a lack of communication more than anything else. Communication is where the devil fights the hardest. When communication is broken, nothing else functions. You definitely do not have sex. There is no "divisions of labor," and no one is doing his fair share. Most of us have not learned the importance of communication."

I'd like to share something I learned, and it's in relation to Ping Pong. You see many times we are so busy making points that we slam, don't pay attention or consider the value of continuing the game. The illustration was to try to keep the ball on the table. In other words instead of being quick to make points or slam, try to keep the conversation on the table. What does this involve? In short, it involves listening, paraphrasing, and giving value to what the other individual (your spouse) has to say. Now, this may be challenging to do if your husband isn't privy to what you're doing, however, if you commit to it from your perspective you will see a change in your stress level, frustration, etc. Ask for wisdom in this area.

Please visit my LINK and get my 60 minute, virtual workshop to transform your relationship - free! This workshop is called "The Empowered Wife". Whether you're engaged, been married 3 years, 15 or more years, there is a time where we realize that in order to help this great partnership thrive, we must learn new ways to enhance our relationship. If you don't do this, you may look around and you're no longer partners but merely exist.

Hurry, this recorded workshop will only be available for a limited time: http://budurl.com/88a5

They create personalized, custom photo flipbooks. But wait, there's more! He makes them right at your event! On the spot! At your wedding ceremony and reception, Flipped Out Productions can produce 30-45 flipbooks per hour. They each contain 60 business card sized pages, generated from a seven-second video.

Hi Readers,

Did you know that NWweddingplace sells wedding products? Yes! Some of them can be ordered directly online, and others need special, custom ordering. For example, one of our most popular products is the Heart Sand Ceremony. It comes with 3 vases, the main heart and its stopper and the metal stand. Couples can even choose to have the heart and the vases personalized. Some couples who are blending families may also choose to purchase extra vases so their kids can blend their sand in too! Neat idea!

Happy Wedding! www.NWweddingplace.com
