Marriage Conversation on the Radio with Dr. Stephen Frueh & Shannon Devereaux Sanford
Dr. Frueh is a marriage coach, speaker and author of With These Rings and From Marginal to Magnificent, two books every married couple needs to own. Dr. Frueh has devoted years to helping us understand why marriage is important and how we can unravel the complications that pull us apart so we can stay together in a happy, productive union that gives us independence and security.
Dr. Frueh has a new way of looking at marriage: he believes that we need to make ourselves happy and not to give that job to our spouse. If we are happy we can share love and lives that compliment each other and help us grow. To learn more about Dr. Frueh and to order books go to http://www.marriageconversation.com/
How to partner as a team – Part II”
We’ll take a better look at ‘team building’ within families.
- Every family regardless of size, can be thought of as a team.
- What holds a team together? Vision – individual and shared.
- How do teams figure out what to focus on?
- How does changing the conversation from ‘being a family’ to being a team change the family environment?
- What about discipline, roles, projects, and non compliers?
- Who is ‘on the team’ and how do we know what to trust each person for?
- Is talking about ‘team’ a Disney type thing – all hype no reality? Or, is there substance in this approach?
- Team ‘meetings’ – how to have productive gatherings.
- Team ‘leaders’ – who are they and how do we pick them?
- Does seeing families as teams eliminate or dishonor parents?
LISTEN here if you missed the show:
Dr. Frueh will look at some critical ideas around creating a ‘working agreement’ within families that make family living and marriage relationships more productive. Here are some of the topics he will be talking about:
- Do we each know how to function in a family?
- Are men ignorant of what it takes or are they just not interested?
- How do we invite participation (real, genuine, and present) in family matters when our spouse seems to have little interest.
- How do we stop blaming and start welcoming them?
- What do we know about each other’s “worlds?”
- What are the ‘gifts’ men bring to family?
- Are women trained to exclude men or is it only a time and focus thing?
- How can I get my husband more involved with his children?
- How can I get more involved with his/her concerns?
So it is summer and for many that means vacation time. Have your family vacations become obligations? Would you like some time alone or would you like a volunteer vacation where you are helping others?
It may be time for a new perspective, a new way to look at your vacation. Even if you have been married for a long time you can still change your idea of a vacation and have it ‘feed’ your family a good and interesting experience.
Is your marriage at the crossroad where you look at your spouse for input and support but instead you argue? If so you may constantly feel angry and frustrated. Marriage is work, and sometimes it feels not worth it.
You are not alone in these situations. Many couples get to crossroads in their marriage and that is just what Dr. Frueh is going to talk about in Marriage Conversation with Dr. Daniela Roher who is co-author of Couples at the Crossroads: Five Steps to Finding Your Way Back to Love (http://couplesatthecrossroads.com)
