#4.17 Understanding the Differences between Men and Women

Where's the Lemonade?

Most marriage difficulties center around one fact, that men and women are totally different. There are emotional, mental and physical differences. We can have happier marriages if we make an effort to understand the differences.We are definitely stereotyping and generalizing, so deal with it.  Women tend to be more personal than men. Women typically have a deeper interest in people and feelings, in building relationships.  Men tend to be interested in logical deduction.  Men tend to be more challenge-and -conquer oriented, typically why they like sports. Why would a woman be less interested in a boxing match? It's because close, loving relationships are usually not developed in the ring! Also, watch what happens during many family vacations. He is challenged by the goal of driving 400 miles a day. On the other hand, she wants to stop now and then to have a snack, relax and relate. He thinks that's a waste of time because it would interfere with his goal. Men tend to be less desirous in building intimate relationships. Women are usually the ones to buy marriage books or listen/read to self help books. Women tend to find their identity in close relationships. Men tend to gain their identity through careers/work. Because of a woman's emotional identity with people and places around her, she needs more time to adjust to change. She sees that changes may affect her relationships. A man can logically deduce the benefits of a change. He gets “psyched-up” for it in a matter of minutes. This is not so, with a woman. She focuses on immediate consequences, and needs time to overcome the initial adjustment before warming up to its advantages. Physically women need touch and romantic words.  Women are typically attracted by a mans personality. A man is typically visual, doesn't need words as much as women. When a women feels hurt by her husband, she does not want physical intimacy.  Now that you know WHY men and women cannot understand their respective differences without great effort, I hope you will have more hope. I also hope you will have more patience as you endeavor to strengthen and deepen your relationship with your spouse.Lemonade moment of the week Darren went to help Jacob and Andie with their new house.

Take a minute to think about how awesome it is when your child is telling you a story or celebrating something that happened at school. The moments we are able to listen to their creativity, celebrate with them, or just have a conversation with them are some of the greatest moments in life! In blended families, custody situations can cut down on the amount of time one parent gets with the child. This can be difficult for both the child and the parent. We all want those precious moments we mentioned above and they're so important for building a strong bond. In this week's episode, we will talk about keeping your child and co-parent connected while they are not together, how communication methods can change as your children grow, and so much more!Additional resources can be found in our book, Blended and Redeemed, which releases in September of 2022.

In this week's episode, Michele of @soaringspiritsintl and a 2021 Top 10 CNN Hero, shares her story about the challenges of blending a family, but then enduring a devastating loss and grieving as a blended family. But because grief is cumulative and cumulatively negative, a previous divorce, followed by the sudden death of her spouse, then the death of her father, taught her so much more about what it means to grieve well. It's hard enough to be a widow and raise your own children, but few talk about the challenges of grieving with the children you raised as your own with a spouse who is no longer living. By the time her father's health was declining and he was put into hospice care, Michele had been around the grief block and was able to support her mother in a way she had never anticipated. And, the loss of her father, starkly different than the recent loss of her spouse before his passing, opened her up to have meaningful conversations at the end of his life that she still treasures today.   Grief has been the catalyst for what was initially going to be a book but later morphed into a movement in what is called Soaring Spirits Camp Widow which takes place in several locations around the United States and now in Australia, too. What is your grief trying to open you up to receiving? Michele allowed her heart to soar in the wake of her devastating losses. Let this episode inspire hope and instill the understanding that grief is what we make of it. We can allow grief to destroy our spirit, or we can allow it to aid us to transform our suffering and soar.  RESOURCES:Soaring Spirits Camp WidowBook, Different after You: Rediscovering Yourself and Healing after Grief and TraumaCONNECT:WebsiteFacebook@soaringspiritsintl / @micheleneffher______NEED HELP?National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255Crisis Text Line provides free, 24/7 support via text message.

In blended families, we can sometimes get caught up in the routine or the hustle of everyday life and forget that our children are shifting back and forth between two homes and different routines. This week's episode is all about finding out how we can make life more comfortable for them. Making accommodations in our home to create a sense of unity or sameness between both parents' houses will allow children to feel less like they live two separate lives, and more like they have a home in two places. We'll share some practical ways to talk to your children and make adjustments to meet their needs in both homes.Additional resources can be found in our book, Blended and Redeemed, which releases in September of 2022.
