Keeping your relationship as intimate as on your Worldwide Marriage Encounter weekend means taking the tools from the weekend and applying them to our everyday lives. On our weekend we learned a new way of living our lives that involves sharing our innermost self with our spouse through the communication technique we learned, called "dialogue". This 20 minutes we give of ourselves to our spouse each and every day is the most precious gift we can give.
But no one ever said it was going to be easy. There are many stumbling blocks and excuses that we use when we fall short of living up to our commitment. Feelings are the foundation of intimate communication. We all know how to share what we know or think, but those skills, while important, do not help us to adequately share ourselves with our spouse. It takes practice and patience to share our feelings.
Below are some resources to help you keep your dialogue on track and to continue to grow more intimately with your spouse through daily dialogue.
