097: 3 Moves to Restore Peace after a Fight
If you’re anything like I was, some fights come up in your relationship more often than a hit song plays on Top 40 radio. You don’t want to have the same fight over and over, but it keeps happening. You’re just talking about the leftovers from dinner and next thing you know, your mother–who isn’t present–is involved, and you’re both yelling things you would be embarrassed to repeat. It makes you question whether this relationship is even sustainable because these blow-ups are so draining and painful. And so distracting from the things you were planning to do because the fight keeps replaying in your head. Happily, you don’t have to stay stuck in wall-to-wall hostility or a week-long cold war. On today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast we’re talking about 3 moves to restore peace after a fight.
Twice a year we host a free Adored Wife Challenge, where we all experiment with applying the 6 Intimacy Skills™ together every day for five days.

So we asked her permission, and Alison agreed to let me share it with you! She’s going to reveal what she did so you can do the same things to make your marriage thrive.
