Marriages - BUILT TO LAST workshop update - last week we discussed "blame shifting." Blaming often equates to a victim mindset - acting as though we have no power in the situation. What can we do instead? 

Three steps to take:

1) Be aware ("catch" yourself "blaming" your spouse)
2) Take responsibility (apologize?)
3) Communicate (ask questions to understand first, then request your preferences) 

Above all - show love and mercy. Do what you can to make each situation better and then - let. it. go. 

Be intentional - choose to make your spouse your best friend today!
