“Afraid to go home!”

A couple who recently came to The Ravines expressed, “We’re afraid to go home!”

We get that! The Ravines intentionally provides time away from the day-to-day stressors. No kids, work and minimal electronics. In addition to proven Christian counseling, we provide space for couples to reconnect.
Many of us went to church camp as kids. . .

Marriage Minute: Managing Conflict
From The Gottman Institute

Generally, people think the goal of conflict is winning. If you’re winning, your partner is losing. And if your partner is losing, the relationship is losing. The goal of conflict is understanding. Understanding doesn’t mean you agree, which is okay because you don’t need to resolve your conflicts. You just need to manage them.

So the next time you feel yourself getting frustrated, instead of digging in and defending your position, stop and say, “Help me understand.” This turns conflict into connection.
