Conversation Starters

It is important that we spend time in conversation with our spouses that does not directly relate to the running of our lives. We need to talk about more than who is picking up the milk and who is running the kiddos to practice.


Pick a headline or story from the newspaper and talk about.


Talk about something you heard on the radio. For those of you who listen to NPR this is an easy way to find something to talk about.


This comes in All Ages, Couples, Family, Kids, and Teens versions. It is available at teacher supply stores and on the web.
