When we do something for a long time, we get better at it...or we should. Sometimes, we forget to add new tools to our marriage toolbox, especially after we’ve been married for a while. If you're looking to improve your marriage, you need to start developing tools to use when common situations come up. Ashleigh Slater, the author of Team Us, offers five of her own marriage tools to help couples navigate the tricky situations of marriage.
It might be a midnight misunderstanding, a last minute change of plans, a miscommunication on holiday plans, or a confrontation gone wrong. We’ve all encountered moments in marriage that take some work to get through successfully. Rather than starting from scratch every time, we need to develop marriage tools that we can use again and again in these situations, making each one a bit easier than the last.
Ashleigh shares five of her own marriage tools used over the course of her marriage. From the catastrophic first Valentine’s Day she shared with her husband to their struggle to remember what song they danced to at their wedding, Ashleigh weaves her stories into each tool, inviting you to share in the tools and create your own.
