How to Have a Difficult Conversation

How to Have a Difficult Conversation

August 25, 2020

My client’s husband had a problem with being chronically late for dinner. They always planned for dinner to be at 6:00 p.m., but he hardly ever made it home on time, and he never called or texted.

 

My client was feeling disrespected and unimportant. She wanted to work it out with him, but every time they talked about it their conversation ended in a fight.

 

In this week's podcast, I am going to teach you how to have a difficult conversation with your husband that doesn’t end in a fight!

How to get out of a Negative Thinking Pattern

July 28, 2020

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I needlessly get stuck in negative thinking patterns.

 

Say, your husband does something that bothers you, and you keep ruminating on it and thinking about it and have trouble letting it go.

 

I’ve learned to notice these negative patterns and pull myself out of them, and I’d like to help you do the same thing.

 

So, on today's podcast, I thought I’d share a time with you when I got stuck in a negative thinking pattern and show you how I got out of it.

How to Get Help from God

How to Get Help from God

July 21, 2020

I’m going to be really vulnerable with you here. It was Mother’s Day, and my husband gave a bottle of wine to another woman.

 

You’ll have to tune into the podcast to hear the whole story, but I can tell you that I was so hurt by that.

 

Mothers get two days a year—their birthday and Mother’s Day—to be doted on by their families, and I felt like this incident took that away from me.

 

All I wanted was to feel cherished on that day.

 

In this episode, I’ll share how I got help from God with my thoughts and feelings. It’s kind of a cool story. I hope you’ll tune in!

7 Ways to Increase the Connection in Your Marriage

7 Ways to Increase the Connection in Your Marriage

July 7, 2020

Are you and your husband at odds with each other more than you are in harmony these days and you don’t know why? You’re not alone, and I can help.

Many of us are unknowingly creating disconnection in our marriages. I’d like to stress the word “unknowingly” here because there are relationship skills no one has taught us. We go to school to learn reading and writing and math, but they don’t teach us relationship skills.

So my intention here today is to shine a light on a few things that might be breaking down the connection in your marriage and show you how to repair it!

What to do When You are Angry

What to do When You are Angry

May 19, 2020

Last week on the podcast we talked about your husband’s anger. This week I want to talk to you about your anger.

Just so happens I had the opportunity to get angry last weekend. How fortunate for all of us that I could have the experience to share with you.

My intention for sharing it is to teach you how to handle anger better. Because if we don't handle it well, it will prevent us from being our best version of ourselves. In my specific situation last weekend, I didn't want to let it ruin the day, so in this episode, I will teach you what I did to handle it that day and how my coach taught me to honor myself for my feelings and let the anger go, once and for all. 

I also have a free download for you today that will help you feel happier. It’s a FREE Daily Gratitude Journal. Download it HERE
