7 Useful Keys To Unlock Communication In Your Marriage

Communication is absolutely vital to human existence, and God desires for us to communicate with each other in a way that will solve problems, build relationships, and bring glory to Him.

Marriage-proposal 1

What are the basic purposes of communication? Why is it so powerful and important? One of the most significant purposes of communication is to solve problems and build relationships. In marriage, communication is the single greatest factor in working through problems. If you’re not dealing with problems right now, communication is the single greatest factor in building and strengthening your marriage relationship.

I once talked with a woman who told me that she and her husband were getting a divorce. “We have never really talked,” she said. She then made a statement that has echoed through my mind over the years. She said, “You know, Pastor Davis, since we decided to get a divorce, we have finally started talking. We have talked more in the last week than in all the years of our marriage. If only we could have talked like this for the last few years, I don’t think we would be getting a divorce at all!” I strongly suspect that she was right. Communication not only builds relationships, but it helps solve problems in those relationships.

There is so much frustration in homes and families because of failure to adequately communicate. I’ve had young people say to me, “My parents won’t talk to me.” Parents, it isn’t our impression of how much we are communicating with our children that matters; their impression is what counts. It’s a wise father and mother who don’t rely on just spanking, grounding, or grabbing car keys, but who know how to grab a child’s emotions in a heart-to-heart conversation.

One of the greatest family crises that can develop is communication shutdown. All other crises inevitably erupt from it. Once communication has shut down, it is often painful and difficult to get it started again. And when it does start up, it will often begin with conflict that causes people to run away instead of staying with it. Any time there is a problem, the solution is not less communication; the solution is morecommunication. The problem will not work out if you just walk away.

It has been said that communication is to a relationship what blood is to the body. As the blood flows through the body, carrying out impurities and bringing fresh cells and life, so communication regularly carries out the impurities of a relationship and causes the whole relationship to be fresh and new and alive.

Since it is so vitally important to families, how can we make sure that we are communicating effectively? I’d like to share several practical steps.

Discover, Learn About, and Show Interest in the Interests of Your Spouse and Your Children

This principle is found in Romans 15:1-2. It says we “ought . . . not to please ourselves . . . Let every one of us please his neighbor . . . to edification.” Find the interest of your spouse and get interested in it. Maybe it’s gardening or sewing, the stock market or computers. Perhaps it’s hiking, biking, fishing, hunting, carpentry, cooking, quilting, singing, or playing an instrument. There are hundreds—even thousands—of possibilities.

You may have heard this statement before, but let me share it with you right here:You’ve got to be interested if you’re going to be interesting. In other words, if you want to be interesting to someone, you’ve got to take interest in the other’s interests. Look for it. Discover it; learn about it. By doing so, you create an area where two people can connect and begin opening doors for communication.

Listen with Your Entire Being

Isaiah 55:2-3 says, “Hearken diligently unto me . . . Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live.” That word hearken, the Hebrew word shama, means “to listen intelligently, to pay attention.” This is distinct from the simple act of hearing; it means listening on purpose. The phrase incline your ear is the Hebrew wordnata. It means to stretch or bend. It implies that you are doing something to cause yourself to yield. When we listen, we need to do it on purpose, intelligently, with our entire being.

In a previous article, I mentioned a study on the total message in communication. The researchers found that words make up only 7% of the total message. Inflection and tone of voice make up 38%, and body language and facial expressions make up 55%. If you’re not really paying attention when your spouse or child is talking to you—if you’re hearing their words but not looking at them and really listening—you will only get a small percentage of the total message. It’s vital that we give our full attention to our spouses and children when they are talking to us.

Watch for Opportunities to Praise, Honor, and Reverence Your Spouse, Parents, and Children

Twice in the Psalms, we’re told that praise is “comely.” Putdowns are ugly. A young man should never put down his sisters. Why? Because he’s training himself to do the same thing to his wife someday. Some young men use putdowns because they appeal to their carnal natures, to their egos and sense of importance. In a distorted way, it makes them feel like a big man. But if you really want to be a big man, be humble and praise others. Putdowns are ugly, but appropriate praise is beautiful, proper, and fitting.

I shared with a young lady how important it was that she honor her father so that she would know how to reverence her husband. Why is that so important? Because I have never seen a woman able to steal away a man whose wife was reverencing him. I’ve seen it tried and have watched it fail, because the reverence of a wife creates a powerful connection of communication that draws him to her and protects him from other women with wrong motives and wrong attitudes.

Plan Times and Settings Just to Communicate

Purposely set time aside just for communication. Have a date night with your wife just to talk. Men, we may not feel like we need this, but the truth is we need it more than we think we do. Deliberate communication brings balance to our lives. And your wife needs it because it gives her a feeling of intimacy, closeness, and oneness with you.

Husbands, when you cut off that communication or do not allow your wife to share her feelings, you’re doing more than simply not listening to her. You are cutting her off as a person. You are starting a dangerous and destructive process, causing her to feel more and more like an object, instead of like the most important person in your life.

Parents should also make times to communicate with their children. The older your children get, the more important this becomes. Too often, as children enter the teen years, communication between parent and child diminishes. It should be the opposite.

Plan times and settings just for communication. Too many families don’t sit down and have meals together, or if they do eat together, they’re watching TV while they do. Make an effort to have family meals as often as you can. It’s one of the best opportunities you’ll have to communicate.

Watch For — and Accept — God-Given Opportunities

As parents, it’s easy to feel too busy to take time out of the day to communicate with our children. But we need to realize that God sends opportunities that we need to take advantage of. I walked into the house one day, and one of my daughters came up to me and said, “Dad, would you like to see the dress I just bought?” Now, looking at clothes isn’t exactly my favorite thing to do. But listening to my daughters is. I took the time to listen to how she had found the dress and the good buy she had gotten. We weren’t discussing anything of earth-shattering importance, but it was a good opportunity to talk and build our relationship. Too often parents tell their children that they’re “too busy right now” or are too self-absorbed to notice the everyday opportunities for communication that God sends their way.

Now, there’s a balance here that we need to achieve, especially with younger children. Children should know that they can’t come barging in at any time and expect their parents to drop whatever they’re doing and give the children their full attention. They need to be trained to be respectful, polite, and considerate. At the same time, parents need to recognize the difference between a child being rude or disrespectful and needing training or correction, and a child simply needing the parent to pause and communicate.

Ask Questions

Go through the Gospels and notice that Jesus, the greatest communicator who ever lived, not only taught and answered questions, but asked questions. We need to ask questions of our children. “How are you doing today? Have you been praying like you should? Did you read your Bible today, son? How do you feel about such and such? Do you know that Dad loves you?”

I could give dozens of questions to ask your children, ranging from simple questions about everyday life to those that touch on the foundational issues of who we are and what we believe. “Why is it important to put things away? Why should we pay bills on time? What did the sermon you heard at church say to you?” Questions open doors for communication, and they not only help us learn more about each other, but cause us to think through important issues.

Learn to Draw Emotional Word Pictures

This is especially important if you’re having difficulty communicating with a certain person. The goal of drawing emotional word pictures is to communicate in such a way that you reach not only the person’s mind, but the heart as well. This works with both men and women, but especially with men. You want to grab his heart in such a way that he can’t get away from it. A profound example of this concept is found in the Bible in 2 Samuel 12.

In the previous chapter, we read about the biggest failure in the life of King David—his adultery with Bathsheba. In an attempt to cover up what he had done, David arranged for Bathsheba’s husband to be killed in battle.

In chapter 12, God sent Nathan to David. Nathan was something of a spiritual adviser to David, and in this chapter, he comes to reprove David for what he has done. He begins by telling a story that contains a compelling emotional word picture.

There were two men in one city; the one rich, and the other poor. The rich man had exceeding many flocks and herds: but the poor man had nothing, save one little ewe lamb which he had bought and nourished up, and it grew up together with him, and with his children.

Notice that every word here is building the emotional impact. Nathan continued with the story:  “It did eat of his own meat, and drank of his own cup, and lay in his bosom, and was unto him as a daughter.” David, who had spent his youth as a shepherd caring for sheep, could closely identify with the poor man and his love for that lamb.

And there came a traveller unto the rich man, and he spared to take of his own flock and of his own herd, to dress for the wayfaring man that was come unto him; but took the poor man’s lamb, and dressed it for the man that was come to him.

We see the emotional impact this story had on David in the next verse: “And David’s anger was greatly kindled against the man; and he said to Nathan, As the Lord liveth, the man that hath done this thing shall surely die.” Nathan’s reply to David, as a follow-up to the powerful emotional word picture he had just drawn, brought the point home in a way that nothing else could have done: “Thou art the man.”

The key in drawing an emotional word picture is to find a person’s interest, if possible something close to his heart, and then draw a parallel between that and whatever situation you’re dealing with. The power of Nathan’s words came from the fact that David could so closely identify with the poor man in the story. He knew what it was to care for lambs. He had put his own life on the line to protect and defend his sheep. The terrible cruelty of the rich man, who wasn’t content to draw from his own immense resources but instead chose to steal and kill the poor man’s lamb, came to life for David in a  powerful way. When Nathan drew the comparison between David and the rich man, David finally realized the full weight of his sin.

If you’re having trouble communicating with someone in a critical area, especially if you’re trying to work through some problem or difficulty, try to find an interest and create an emotional word picture around that interest. Anything this person is able to closely identify with is good material. It might be a hobby, career, childhood memory, or accomplishment. Find a parallel between the interest and the current situation, and create an emotional word picture that will grab the other’s heart and help him or her understand your perspective on the issue at hand.


Communication is truly the foundation of relationships, and our ability to communicate is one of the single most significant factors that will determine the strength of our families. By remaining aware of our opportunities for communication and implementing some basic principles, we can strengthen our families and experience the joy of truly fulfilling relationships.

71 Year Old Indian Nun Asks God To Forgive Men Who Gang-Raped Her Inside A Catholic School

A 71-year-old Indian nun, who was gang raped by robbers last Friday night inside a Catholic missionary school in eastern India, is reportedly asking God to forgive the men who assaulted her.

Demonstrators shout slogans as they hold placards during a protest outside a church in New Delhi

A group of bandits raided the Convent of Jesus and Mary School in West Bengal on Friday and reportedly tried to assault another woman inside the school. The aging nun, who remains nameless, tried to prevent the men from attacking the woman.

The Times of India reports that the men locked the nun in a room while two other members of the church and a security guard were tied down to chairs in a separate area. After the three of them were tied up, the bandits went into the room where the elderly nun was being held and gang-raped her.

The men also ransacked the school, ripped apart a Bible, destroyed a bust of Jesus and stole cash, laptops, phones and other belongings.

After the four victims were discovered inside the school on Saturday morning, the nun was transported to the Ranaghat Hospital where she was treated for her injuries, according to the Times.

A mother of one of the school’s students who went to visit the nun at the hospital explained that she and other visitors were astounded to hear that the nun was more concerned about whether or not her attackers were forgiven, rather than her own physical state.

The Times reports: “Visitors could not hold back their tears when she prayed that the men who harmed her be forgiven.”

“That’s the greatness of spiritual soul like her,” the woman said. “But all of us want the miscreants behind such heinous crime to be arrested and given exemplary punishment.”

The hospital’s superintendent, Atindranath Mondal, said the nun was also deeply concerned with the safety of the school and its students. Mondal explained that the nun kept saying, “Dil mein dard hai (my heart is broken).

Distraught over the physical attack against the nun, citizens in the Nadia district of West Bengal shut down schools and shops on Tuesday and protested over what they perceive to be police inaction in regard to justice for the nun and school.

“We have called for the shutdown of businesses and shops in this town to support the nun … and the immediate arrest of the culprits,” Samiran Paul, a cloth merchant and spokesman for the local business association, told AFP. “We can’t imagine such inhumane torture on an elderly nun who devoted her life to service of humanity. It’s a shame on us.”

The school’s surveillance cameras captured six men in their 20s scaling the school walls. The video footage has reportedly captured the faces of at least three of the men.

Three days after the crime, key suspects are believed to remain at-large even though local police have detained at least eight individuals who they suspected as culprits. None of detainees faces, however, matched the faces of the men caught on video.

Although no arrests have been made, Nadia District Police Superintendent Arnab Ghosh told media outlets that five people are still being held in connection to the crime.

“CCTV footage showed that six men, aged between 20 and 30, scaled the boundary wall round 11:40 p.m. and entered the school and disconnected the telephone lines,” Ghosh explained. “At least two of them were armed and the rest were carrying burglary tools. In the chapel, a holy scripture was found torn and … a bust of Jesus was broken.”

A reward of 100,000 rupees has been offered for leads to an arrest.

Calls For Prayer As People From THE HOLY LAND Suffer

Christian Today

Two Irish bishops are calling on the faithful to pray for Christian families in the Holy Land affected not only by war but the most violent winter experienced by the region in decades.

west-bank post

Archbishop Kieran O’Reilly and Bishop Ray Browne, who went to the Holy Land last week as part of a delegation promoting peace and respect for human dignity, said they were deeply affected by the living conditions of people in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza.

“We have all seen the images on the television news and read the column inches in newspapers and magazines but when you are there in person – meeting families whose lives have been devastated, who don’t have a roof to put over their heads, basic food to put on the table, and are witnessing children dying of exposure – you very quickly come to realise just how deeply distressing the situation is for the people of Gaza,” they said in a statement released by the Irish Bishops’ Conference.

The prelates further said that the faithful should open their hearts to the cries of the people in Gaza and other areas, who are suffering amid the devastation surrounding them.

“We encourage Irish faithful to continue to pray for the suffering people of Gaza, specifically the diminishing Christian community which is caught in the crossfire of conflict. We take this opportunity to thank everyone for their on-going and generous support for Trócaire’s work in the Holy Land and, while acutely conscious of the challenges facing the budget of many Irish families, we humbly ask that this support would continue,” they added.

HELP MAURICE : 12 Yrs After Playing The World Cup , Kenyan Cricketer Maurice Odumbe Is Living As A POOR MAN

In 2003 when Kenya was playing Srilanka at Nairobi Gymkhana, the stadium was filled with thousands of elated Kenyans who couldn’t imagine how we beat Srilanka in a world cup. A team that was made up of Steve Tikolo , Collins Obuya , Kennedy Otieno, Martin Suji , Ravindu Shah and Maurice Odumbe was the reason behind that success on that year.


A scandal popped up after that and Maurice Odumbe a well known cricket player and former captain of the Kenyan team, was banned from playing cricket for five years for allegedly flouting the ethical and professional rules of the KCA and ICC.That would be the moment that Maurice would move from class to grass.

According to business daily.

Maurice filed an application for judicial review in our Kenyan High Court against the Kenya Cricket Association, the ICC and the presiding judge at his trial.

In his application for judicial review he sought to have our High Court review the decision made by the ICC (through KCA) by having our high court quash the decision made.

He prayed for an order of certiorari and prohibition. An order of prohibition would prohibit the KCA and ICC from banning him from playing cricket therefore effectively restoring his status.

The main ground in support of his application was that the KCA is a public body and therefore its decisions were susceptible to review by the court via judicial review.

The respondents put up a protracted argument arguing that both the KCA and ICC are private bodies and therefore not susceptible to judicial review.

Decisions of private bodies, it was argued are not in the court’s domain.


Fast forward to 2015, Maurice Odumbe is not that same cricketer who would park his car at the prestigious parking lot designated for cricket players arriving at cricket grounds. He is a poor man living like a beggar. His once called upscale life is no more.

Fashion Watch analyst Robert Burale is one of the public figures who caught up with him and he was so moved by the state in which Maurice Odumbe is living and he has started a campaign to help him.


He shared  :

“Sad afternoon. ..I bumped into my old friend Maurice odumbe…. once the best cricketer in this side of the world..he put Kenya in the map..every newspaper was ODUMBE THE BEST. …ODUMBE THE MAN. .but now he is left to wallow in desperation and living like a beggar (his own words)…and he tells me that IBRAHIM BILALI the former boxer is even worse..DO WE FORGET OUR HEROES,??? SAAAAAAD. (I put up this post in Maurice’s presence) LETS HELP HIM”


This begs the question, are we good at enjoying the fun while our players win medals for us and in the long term we do not go back to check how they are living ?

Let’s help Maurice.

Famously known for hosting the news segment called Check Point on KTN, Yvonne Okwara finally checked her way out from being single when she exchanged wedding vows on Saturday 6th to her loving boyfriend called Andrew. Andrew Matole who is a veterinary surgeon by profession has been the mystery man who stole Yvonne Okwara’s heart for sometime and he confirmed his true intentions today when he said “I DO” to her.

News of Yvonne Okwara’s wedding was made public a week ago by her close friend Dennis Itumbi who wished her the best in marriage live on air after an interview on KTN. With a surprise smile she couldn’t imagine why Dennis had to do it? but most of us knew that the news was true as Itumbi and Yvonne have been friends for long.


On Saturday morning Yvonne Okwara finally confirmed what Itumbi had said when she elegantly walked down the aisle in a colorful ceremony that was held at Crown Plaza Hotel in Nairobi. The groom Andrew Matole who is a director/surgeon of The Andys Clinic couldn’t imagine how beautiful his bride was but with a huge smile he waited patiently as she was escorted by her parents from the main entrance of the hotel.


With so much joy he received her at the aisle and when they exchanged their well written vows, they were  welcomed with a huge celebration of the crowd that had gathered to witness their union in marriage that would unite them in love forever.

How great is this for the wedding lovers who have now witnessed two celebrity weddings simultaneously, a day after Teacher Wanjiku got married to her best friend Victor Ber.

We wish her all the best.
