Happy families require planning. At the center of planning is communicating as a husband and wife and God.
How do we do this?
We call it “Executive Council.” Lane and I meet together (at home, in our room, with the door closed…except when children barge in because we forgot to lock the door) with our laptops open and go over a set agenda.
Here’s our agenda:
Schedule (upcoming week calendaring, including vacation)
Expressions of Faith/Gratitude
We had learned that communicating together is not just essential; it is critical to the happiness and well-functioning of our marriage and family. We highly recommend frequent communication, both formal (like this council setting) and informal (every day, date night, working together, getaways together, etc.)
