Wii20100815-Entry086-Removing Boulders

The previous two weeks were spent discussing the types of conflicts we experience in relationships and, specifically, in marriage. Now we come to the big question: what do we DO about the conflict?

Tim discusses the two parts of every conflict, the path to take in any conflict, and why some conflicts are easier to resolve than others.

This teaching arc is based on the book “Boundaries”, by Dr. Cloud and Dr. Townsend, and is supplemented by their other books, Boundaries in Marriage, Boundaries for Teens, and Boundaries for Kids.

Tim wraps up our discussion on Fence Myths and turns to the subject of constructing fences on ourselves. The most urgent we have for building fences in our lives is in limiting ourselves in order to provide freedom for others.
