Creating a Soft Place to Land

It is our responsibility in marriage to create a soft place for our mate to land. We must work hard to create a safe and warm place for them to share the stresses of their day, the feelings they have about their life as well as their joys. Sharing these feelings and experiences creates a lasting bond and point of connection.
