conflicts in communicating

| November 13, 2013 | 12 Comments

If my readers have one once of similarity with me, they’ll connect with this quote: “I told you that,” when thinking about how the latest argument started with your spouse.  Yes, I know the rule: it’s not always what we said, but how we said it, yet I have learned to go one step further. I try to think about what it was that was actually heard. Did my words imply one thing, then were interpreted differently?  Did I take the time to ask for confirmation?  When reading Rocks Through My Window, my readers connect with “norms” of communication strains when couples are hurriedly living their lives and raising teenages at the same time.

    It takes a lot of time, courage and fortitude to commit to a book project. Few mothers would dare to write a story about their deepest feelings and heartbreaks for others to see. It is much easier to confide with a friend, or retreat with a glass of wine. Yet, what is most personal is also what is most universal.
    Many mothers will find much consolation in reading “Rocks Through My Window” knowing that parenting often seems more challenging than rewarding. As Jeannie write, “Just when you think you’re done with parenting, they move the finish line.”
    The author clearly obtains her goal: to witness to the power of prayer, and to offer real hope to the reader that they are not alone or dysfunctional coping with family issues; and if “Gigi” can do it, so can others who believe in the power of love.
    Jeannie tells a powerful story, Readers will be routing for “Gigi” from one adventure to another and along the way, begin to route for themselves.

    Congrats, sis. Job well done!

      “Few mothers would dare to write a story about their deepest feelings and heartbreaks for others to see. It is much easier to confide in a friend or retreat with a glass of wine. Yet, what is most personal is also most universal. many mothers will find much consolation in reading Rocks Through My Window kno that parenting often seems more challenging than rewarding. As Jeannie writes, “Just when you think you are done with parenting, they move the finish line.” The author clearly obtains her goal: to witness to the power of prayer and to offer real hope to the reader that they are not alone or dysfunctinal coping with family isues. The author tells a powerful story. I found myself routing for “Gigi” from one adventure to another in the book. I suspect readers will do the same and along the way will be inspired to also route for themselves.”
