I was reading a post from Battle for Your Marriage. Care For Your Wife – It Takes More than Food and Water. The reason the post was so powerful was that the author used a word picture (that anyone could identify with) to communicate a truth.
Such a wonderful idea! Let’s learn from it.
When you are struggling to communicate with your husband, try to create a word picture to explain your thoughts. Is your husband into basketball? Can you explain your thoughts using the game as a framework for his understanding? Does he love gardening or fixing cars or jogging? Think of the different parts of his life and see if you can come up with a word picture that he can identify with that will help you explain your thoughts and perspectives.
