Trust Your Mate

God has given you a helpmate, and your mate can only help you if you lower your defenses and listen to him/ her. Most of us have created protective shields against any kind of hurt, and in the process wall ourselves off from important information and help our mate can give. Have you built a wall that keeps you isolated from not only the negative things, but the positive things you can get from your mate? What do you need to lower that wall? Talk about this with them.


Dr. David Hawkins is the director of the Marriage Recover Center where he counsels couples in distress. He is the author of over 30 books, including Dealing With the CrazyMakers in Your Life90 Days to a Fantastic Marriage, and When Pleasing Others is Hurting You. Dr. Hawkins grew up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and lives with his wife on the South Puget Sound where he enjoys sailing, biking, and skiing.
