"We Are Dedicated To Building Vibrant Healthy Marriages!"

Apr 24, 2019

Hey gang ... 

Welcome to YOUR Marriage Matterz podcast episode YMM #062 "Why Change Is Critical To A More Vibrant, Healthy Marriage ... And, How To Make It Happen!"

Tommy Hopkins once said "the price of progress is the pain of change"! So growth can certainly be uncomfortable for sure and at times can be downright painful. In this episode we will discuss why it is so important to you and your marriage and we are going to provide you with a formula for making it happen in your lives!

We will be back next week with our next session in the "40 Days of Prayer" study!

Hey gang ... 

Welcome to this week's YOUR Marriage Matterz podcast episode YMM #050 Marriage Power Skill #1 ... Learning To Effectively Communicate!

At the root of the vast majority of marital challenges lies the same 2 culprits ... 

  • The inability to effectively communicate
  • The inability to effectively solve problems together

When a couple makes a decision to tackle and master these two key "Power Skills" then everything else from there on can be handled! Money, parenting, sex, family and every other marital challenge is a subset of communication and conflict resolution. 

This week we are tackling communication and are giving us all a very powerful and immediately applicable set of skills to assist us all in becoming better communicators! Next week we will tackle conflict resolution with one of our favorite skill sets!

Hey gang ... 

Welcome to YOUR Marriage Matterz podcast episode #047 ... Team Jacobus Answers 2 Great Questions About Conflict! 

Day in and day out we regularly receive questions that have to do with conflict in marriage. Those questions consistently revolve around people who avoid conflict and people that always seem to be in conflict. The truth is conflict is healthy in a marriage when dealt with appropriately!

In this episode we tackle 2 very common questions:

  1. What do you do when your spouse won't engage in conflict and consequently nothing ever gets resolved. 
  2. What do you do when it seems like we argue about everything?

You are going to hear some great ideas regarding what to do about both in this podcast!

Also, we introduced "The Cupid Challenge" in this episode. Simply put it is going to be 14 days of focus on being intentional about building more vibrant healthy marriages and it is going to be a lot of fun!
