119: How Women “Kill Their Husbands Softly” (And How to Avoid it) with Ramona Zabriskie

by | Jan 27, 2023 | General Posts, Podcast

Communication and marriage is a big deal. And many couples tell me they wish their communication was better. Many men approach intimacy in marriage differently than women do, and each person in the marriage has their own fears and insecurities as well. And in fact, I think it’s the way we deal with our insecurities or how we manage them, that often triggers the fears or insecurities or vulnerabilities in the other person.

And what this does is it sets off this reactive cycle. We try to cover our insecurities. We say something that triggers our spouse and what they say triggers our vulnerability and round and round it goes, and often what’s said isn’t the same as the message that was received, which opens up the doors to more hurt feelings and misunderstandings.

I met today’s guest through one of my team members that has participated in her excellent mentorship program. Her name is Ramona Zabriskie. And she’s spent the last decade of her life dedicated to helping women succeed in their marriages. She’s a mentor to hundreds of wives, and she’s full of all this folksy wisdom, like what you’ll get to hear today, like “Five Lies We Tell Brides” and Teaching “Knights to Knit.”

In today’s episode, you’ll get to meet Ramona’s five Crazy Ladies (and I’m wondering which one you relate to the most!), we talk about why husbands and wives don’t listen to each other, and most importantly, you’ll hear what Ramona believes are the steps to building not only just a good or great marriage, but a grand marriage as well.
