Getting to The Heart of Communication
At the core of every marital problem is a lack of effective communication. At the heart of communication is a simple principle, SERVING.

Serving is about understanding their unique need and doing your best to help support them, fill the gaps, and point them to Christ.   Our newest book SPICY Sex is now available in paperback and e-book.    Get the e-book now at https://www.ryancoleempowerment.com/store/spicysex   Give to our ministry now at https://www.ryancoleempowerment.com/giving   Find out more about our ministry at http://moremostforever.com/   TEXT US!!! •  (864) 428-7131 ...with your questions on this topic and we will personally respond.   Follow us on social media:  https://www.instagram.com/moremostforever/   https://www.viktoriyacole.com/home  https://www.facebook.com/ryancoleempowerment  https://www.facebook.com/coleture  https://www.instagram.com/ryancoleempowerment/  https://www.instagram.com/viktoriyacole/  #NeededConversations #marriagepodcast

Communicating Emotions in Marriage
We continue our series on communication in marriage this week by talking about EMOTIONS. We discuss both sides of this dilemma.

Finally, we talk about what's hidden behind our emotions. Do you use emotions (or a lack thereof) to avoid tough conversations?

You're Not What You Do
In this episode, we continue our conversation on the topic of purpose and discuss the difference between your purpose and an assignment. It's so easy to attach ourselves to an assignment God gives us and lose sight of our identity. We find ourselves wrapped up in the relationships that are connected to that assignment and when the grace lifts it can feel like the world is crumbling. The fact is your purpose is fulfilled from assignment to assignment but that doesn't mean one assignment makes up the totality of your purpose. "I'm not what I do, I'm not what I have..." is a phrase our kids declare every day before school. It helps us all stay grounded in our identity in Christ and work from a place of grace. Join me...

What Families Have Been Missing
This week we're discussing the importance of having a multi-generational community and how you can engage with your family in a really meaningful way this holiday season. For too long, we've shunned the idea of multi-generational households or having the perspective of each generation in our lives. Today we're talking about the benefits that we gain from having every generation at the table. We also announced the launch of our latest book for married couples called "SPICY." It's a book helping you to unlock the passion in your marriage and discover God's design for sex.  Donate to this ministry at https://www.ryancoleempowerment.com/giving http://moremostforever.com/ for marriage resources Purchase our book on dating and marriage now at https://www.ryancoleempowerment.com/store/iloveyoumore Follow us on social media: https://www.instagram.com/moremostforever/ https://www.viktoriyacole.com/home https://www.facebook.com/ryancoleempowerment https://www.facebook.com/coleture https://www.instagram.com/ryancoleempowerment/ https://www.instagram.com/viktoriyacole/ #NeededConversations #marriagewithamission #familyculture #jeffersonbethke

Where is this thing going?
That's the question that will be asked in every relationship. That's because marriages that are focused on one another will eventually end up disappointed and marriages, where each spouse focuses on themselves, will starve. If a marriage does not have a mission, it will eventually become stagnant and is at the highest risk for heading toward divorce. Well, we are going to help you answer that question and chart a course for the next 5, 10, and even 20 years into the future. You will leave this workshop with real answers and tools to build effectively. This workshop on October 9, 2021, will consist of 2 Teaching Sessions, a PDF Guide with breaks to help you activate what’s being taught, and at least 1 interactive session with all the couples where we can share ideas and strategies.
