In general, we think that life-skills are learning in childhood. When we become an adult we often consider ourselves, simply because of our age, equipped for relationships. However, there are many relational skills that need to be learned as adults. Marriage often brings a magnifying glass to the places where new skills are needed. In this Double Date with Mark and Jill, we explore how to make learning new skills a normal part of a growing marriage and how the concept of continuing education needs to apply to more than career development!



Talk About It:

Do you ever feel inept or embarrassed about learning new things?

When you were a child, did you enjoy learning new things or did you struggle feeling like you should know how to do them perfectly from the beginning?

Is there anything I can do to make growth safe for you in our marriage?

Think About It:

What relationship skill(s) do I need to be open to learning?

What fears or judgements get in the way of growth that needs to happen in my life?
