As you know, Steve and I took a class on communication this summer. When we started, my plan was to share some of what we were learning as we went. That didn't quite work out since I hadn't anticipated how much time I would have to devote to my classes and how that would take me away from blogland.
Now that the semester has come to an end, I have to say that taking this class together was probably one of the most beneficial things we've done for our marriage. We all know that communication is an essential factor in all relationships. Before this class, I thought our communication was pretty good. Now that we've spent the semester learning about communication and applying our learning to our relationship, I can see how far we've come.
Given how important communication is, not only to intimate relationships but all relationships both personal and professional, I highly recommend that everyone take a class on communication. You will be amazed at what you learn and the difference that comes when you apply your new skills.
Since I know that not everyone will be able to take a class like we did, I've decided to start a new feature here on the blog. I'm still working out the details, but I plan to start a series all about communication-what it is, the things we do to interfere with it, the things we can do to improve it. I hope you find this series as helpful to your relationship as the class was to ours.
