Day 2 - Today is a day of action.

Day 3 - Today is about the Details
- Watch your words, because words carry weight. Are you crushing your spouse with your words? Are you being crushed?
- Say what you mean and mean what you say, without being mean.
Be intentional about making specific positive comments throughout the day.
Like: “I loved the way you used humor to deal with that situation." After all, we usually have no trouble being specific about the negative, “Why do you always put to much water in the pasta.”
Day 4 - Apr 30, 2020

Critical conversations must take place from time to time in your marriage. But they must be discussed at the proper time and in the proper way.
Critical conversations have a window of time. When the window is closed, its just criticizing.
