What does every couple need?...Good Communication!
Communication is one of the most important parts of a successful marriage. If there isn't good communication between a couple, then the couple will eventually lead different lives and may fall out of love. I really love our discussion this week on how the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles conducts their weekly meetings. They have a meeting the same day, time, and place every single week. Everyone sits in a specific place depending on their position in the church and the meetings are always conducted the same. It always starts out with each member arriving early to show their love and appreciation for one another. Then a prayer is said to invite the spirit. Then as they discuss their topics for the week, each member takes a turn to state what they believe and how they feel about the subject, so that way each person is able to express revelation the may receive in order to find the Lord's Will. They then close with a prayer and then enjoy a dessert. I think this method would be such a great way to conduct family counsels and couple counsels within the home. It is a great way of communicating because each person gets a chance to speak while the others listen and a decision is made through the spirit.
