DYM Ep79: Communicating To A Better Connection with Larry Hagner

12 Jan

Communicating To A Better ConnectionHi there! Belah here. Today is Part II of my interview with Larry Hagner of gooddadproject.com. After Larry shared such a moving story in his Part I, he shares why his marriage is strong in the midst of challenges. Communication is the foundation of a healthy marriage: communication with God and each other. But communication is more of a skill, but it isn’t hard. It just requires action and Larry walks us through how to do it.

When you cut off your husband physicallyBooks & Resources Mentioned:



  • The quality of your life is based upon the quality of your questions.
  • Men are wired to problem solve.
  • Women mostly want to be heard, that you know how they feel.
  • When women cut off men physically, it feels the same as when your husband is not speaking to you.
  • Who better to be awkward with than the person who loves you and knows you for the rest of your life
  • What would your marriage look like without sexual intimacy?
  • I don’t have all the answers and that’s okay, but I’m going to go out and find these answers and grow.
