Love Talk

Ever wish you could crawl inside your mate's mind, and understand them better?

Please join me today as I guest blog on Warren Baldwin's Family Fountain, where I review one of my favorite books on communication in marriage.

Happy Sunday!


  1. Yes yes! Looking forward to it:)

  2. Not sure I WANT to crawl inside my mate's mind. Might be scary in there! :) I'll check out your guest spot, thanks for redirecting!


  3. Thanks for guest posting, and thanks for the plug on your blog.


  4. Oh yes! all the time! And sometimes I wish he could crawl into my mind. In fact...sometimes I act as if he should be able to do just this. Poor guy.

  5. It was wonderful, congrats Jeanette! I think I may need to pick that book up:)

  6. That's a great series; thanks for pointing us to it.

    I guess I'm a lot like Christy Rose in that I don't think I've ever finished a book on making marriage work. My hubby and I just tried to be caring and considerate of each other and use a lot of common sense. Mind you, I think we both went into our marriage from homes where good marriages were modeled, so that helped.

    I like that excerpt you included in your post, "Hearing is passive. Listening is active." I guess I'd add that it's easy to fall in love, but a lot harder to stay there. Agape love doesn't just happen, it takes work. I wish more couples realized that before they said, "I do."

    Thanks for this, Jen.

  7. Okay, I'll go check it out. (But do you know that sometimes I DON'T want to know what he's thinking.) :P

  8. What would really be scary is if my hubby could climb into my brain. I think the shock would kill him.
    Love and best wishes Jen.

  9. Hi Jen -

    Beloved and I enjoyed reading, "Boundaries in Marriage," together.

    I'll try to get over to Warren's blog tomorrow. :)


  10. Jen:
    Your message was excellent, but I wouldn't have expected anything less.


Oh, it's YOU! I'm so happy to see you here today, and look forward to reading your comments.
