Description

Nobody is responsible for how you communicate - but you! Communication is complex. Yet we learned all our ways of expressing ourselves at some point in our lives. What if we could UNLEARN our bad communication habits and REPLACE them with new and better ways? Too much to ask? Well, with this course you will explore a tool that will definitely give you a new perspective and new skills for building good communication patterns. 

What if...

  • ...you know how to listen, even if your boss is going off at you?
  • ...you know how to bring across a sensitive personal message with confidence?
  • ...you know how to really hear the heart of your child or spouse?
  • ... one tool can help you make that difference?

Wouldn't we have much more peace in our lives? Join us on this journey of Strong Connections!

I am the wife of an incredible husband and homeschooling mom of four. I love to live life barefoot, simple and with purpose. My passion is to do relationships well, although I find it incredibly hard. Fortunately my husband and my kids give me enough opportunities to practice ;-). Passing on what I've learned is a privilege. Life is short people! Dream BIG and make most of it!
