It was a good time in Lake Charles yesterday at the Connections Count Conference hosted by the Family and Youth Counseling Agency. It was especially fun to see a few friends that I had not seen in quite some time and to have my wife along in support as I was privileged to present on Couple Counseling which is so geared toward assisting couples increase their levell of connectedness. A good first step is simply by keeping one another abreast of the mundane, routine events of life - staying on the same page - making sure your calendars are in sync - sharing interesting tid bits of your day (or maybe not even so interesting tid bits! - just sharing). This does not take much time. No more than 10-15 minutes per day, but what it does take is intentionality and tends to be more consistent when an agreed upon time to which both partners commit. That's all there is to "Sharing New Information"!
