    S2 Ep 18 # 1 Marriage Killer

    S2 Ep 18 # 1 Marriage Killer

    We know, you’ve probably read/listened to this topic before. But Gil and Brenda get pretty raw and keep it real when discussing this one. This marriage killer is pretty common and with these action steps provided, you can steer clear of this.When in conflict, do not use these words: “Me/ You/ I. We use this verbiage without even realizing how much it will help defenses go up. Studies show too, that your mind is closed to exploring new ideas and solutions.Use We/ Us/ Our. How can WE fix this? What is best for OUR relationship? Just this little change will make all the difference! Your mind is open to new strategies and a collaborative solution. Keep your “us” strong and protected!ACTION STEPS:1. When you begin to hear My, Me, I, and You…stop. Pause. Switch gears and move to Us, We and Our.2. Pride? Do you “got it?” The opposite of pride is humility. Have a discussion with your spouse about the differences in our life when we choose one over the other.3. Do you have an Eeyore (from Winnie the Pooh) complex? Do you (or your spouse) always have a negative lens you look through? That is not good for your health, and it is not good for the emotional health of those around you. Life is too short to live this way. Seeking professional help may be an option for you to explore.4. And, discuss the #1 Marriage Killer which was shared in this podcast#gilandbrenda #tipstoolsandtingles #conflictresolution #marriagehelp #marriage #investinyourmarriage #remarriagehelp #friendshipinmarriage #marriagecounselor #marriagecoach #husbandandwifeteam #RestoredandRemarried #remarried #remarriage #stepfamily #stepmom #stepdad #stepmother #stepfather #stepparent #stepparenting #stepchild #blendedfamily #marriagehelp #conflictresolution #parenting #remarriagehelp #stepfamilyhelp #blendedfamilyhelp #remarriageadvice #marriagepodcast #stepfamilypodcast #blendedfamilypodcast #remarriagepodcast www.gilandbrenda.com (http://www.gilandbrenda.com/) hello@gilandbrenda.com (mailto:hello@gilandbrenda.com)  Twitter (https://twitter.com/brendagilstuart) Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/restoredandremarried/) Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/RestoredandRemarried/) YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCc6LPCo8ksYC0nJK2y2dSVg?view_as=public)

We don’t need to make this more complicated!It’s the little things that make a marriage and it’s the little things that destroy it.ACTION STEPS: 1. Listen to this podcast together.2. Which ideas did you resonate with?3. What kind of touchpoints could you add?4. Be intentional and do them!  #gilandbrenda #tipstoolsandtingles #conflictresolution #marriagehelp #marriage #investinyourmarriage #remarriagehelp #friendshipinmarriage #marriagecounselor #marriagecoach #husbandandwifeteam #RestoredandRemarried #remarried #remarriage #stepfamily #stepmom #stepdad #stepmother #stepfather #stepparent #stepparenting #stepchild #blendedfamily #marriagehelp #conflictresolution #parenting #remarriagehelp #stepfamilyhelp #blendedfamilyhelp #remarriageadvice #marriagepodcast #stepfamilypodcast #blendedfamilypodcast #remarriagepodcast www.gilandbrenda.com (http://www.gilandbrenda.com/) hello@gilandbrenda.com (mailto:hello@gilandbrenda.com) Find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube  Twitter (https://twitter.com/brendagilstuart) Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/restoredandremarried/) Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/RestoredandRemarried/) YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCc6LPCo8ksYC0nJK2y2dSVg?view_as=public)  

    S2 Episode 16 STEPFAMILY (all kids) Rocks in the Bucket

    S2 Episode 16 STEPFAMILY (all kids) Rocks in the Bucket

    Gil and Brenda share a concept they have been sharing in their presentations for years. “Rocks in the Bucket” helps give your kids a voice. When done correctly, you empower your children to tell you the truth of how they are feeling. The system is built on you honoring them as they try to honor you with something hard to say. It’s a win/win.
    We all carry around an invisible bucket; it represents our well being. Family members, friends, coworkers can all put rocks in our buckets….and we can put rocks in their buckets! This is an easy way to share this with someone when rocks start flying!

    ACTION STEPS:
    1. Find a metal bucket and 3 rocks.
    2. Demonstrate (as we did) how this works.
    3. Ask them what they think? Talk about examples where they have felt rocks in their bucket.

    S2 Episode 15 STEPDADS Stepdad to Stepdad Pt 2

    S2 Episode 15 STEPDADS Stepdad to Stepdad Pt 2

    This is part 2 of an interview with Gil Stuart. There isn’t a lot of information for stepdads out there. The content of this interview has been on Gil’s heart for over 18 years. As Brenda interviews Gil, listen in as 6 top questions are asked…3 in part 1 and the remaining 3 in part 2.

    1. What is a relational safety zone?

    2. It’s ok to love your mom.
    3. A rock and a hard spot; You between your wife and your kids.
    Although this conversation is directed to stepdads, their wives will benefit from this too. Gil shares feelings and thoughts that many men wish they could tell their wives.

    ACTION STEPS:
    Guys: Have an honest conversation with your wife about these topics. Which do you resonate with more…and why?

    Gals: Be quiet and listen. Do not interrupt… and listen. Do not be judgmental. Be loving. You are holding your husband’s heart. Be gentle. Put on the glasses of curiosity.
