6 - Honesty and Admiration

Session 6


In session five, we learned that quality family time can make things better within our marriages and physical attractiveness is a serious expectation for most men. In both cases, a generous amount of thoughtfulness will give us the ability to do better in these areas. In the last session of this course, Bill and Joyce Harley will discuss how honesty and admiration are important within the marriage relationship.

 In this course, we watched as Dr. Bill Harley and Joyce Harley explained how men and women have the same needs, but require different doses to meet those needs. As unique as all of us are, men and women can generally agree on needing certain things to feel loved by our spouses. Sex, good communication, undivided attention and quality time are key components to building a foundation for fulfillment. As you reflect on what you’ve learned from this course, be prayerful about your marriage. Ask God to reveal to you how you can be a better spouse. Talk to your spouse about what you’ve learned and come up with a plan to apply the things that were helpful.
