God designed men and women differently. This means your spouse communicates differently. A wife’s biggest complaint is, “I need face-to-face time, but he doesn’t talk.” Ask the husband, and he tells you the opposite: “I need something different. I guess I really don’t need to talk as much. I enjoy doing things together, or her watching me do them.”
What, then, is the solution?
In this digital study, Emerson helps participants take an in depth look at how husbands and wives spend time together, focusing on Face-to-Face time for wives and Shoulder-to-Shoulder time for husbands. The ebook includes nine chapters with discussion questions for each, in addition to a corresponding video for each chapter where Emerson helps participants reflect on what they have read and transition to a time of discussion. This study will serve individuals well, and is perfect for couples and small groups. Included with the digital study is a Small Group Leader’s Guide and a Guidelines For All Participants section, to help facilitate the group format. This study will strengthen your marriage and relationships.
