Differences in our expectations and desires can lead to problems. Tim talks about these and some of the sexual aspects of marriage. He also gives the class an experiment to try. Lots of fun.
We return to the subject of His Brain, Her Brain while borrowing heavily from the teaching of author and speaker, Mark Gungor. His materials can be found at LaughYourWay.com.
Today, Tim deals with the messy subject of relational poo, and the myths that we tend to believe that keep our relationships stinky.
Trudi finishes our series on Dealing with Difficult People by discussing the boundaries we must set when dealing with unreasonable people. (This was recorded outside of class, since we…Tim…forgot to record during class.)
We continue the discussion on dealing with unreasonable people and how to avoid the drama. Good, thoughtful discussion on the pitfalls and traps we should look for when trying to avoid the button-pushing and drama-creation of unreasonable people. And perhaps a surprising note about Jesus and unreasonable people.
Based on teaching by Alan Godwin.
(UPDATE: Here is Avoiding the Drama Handout, in PDF format, which covers the last two weeks of class.)
Tim takes us through the differences that Christians and non-Christians face as they deal with reasonable and unreasonable people. After a quick review, he then presses on to the second point in dealing with unreasonable people.
Tim discusses how to actually fix the problem. THE problem. He also talks about the key questions to ask yourself that will help you in fixing the problem.
Much of this material is based on Alan Godwin’s book, How to Solve Your People Problems. Find his info at PeopleProblems.org.
