FANOS In Action1
by Trey O'Brien
Greetings from our living room! We enjoyed the Marriage Conference this past weekend and I thought I’d share a vlog in which we’re practicing one of the exercises that we learned for better communication.
FANOS “is a daily practice for building intimacy”:
Feeling - this is the emotional “check in”
Affirmation - this is intentional affirmation of a characteristic of your spouse
Need - What do I need from my spouse? Can be emotional, physical, or practical.
Ownership - What do I need to take ownership or responsibility for in the relationship?
Spirituality/Sobriety - This is the identification of a struggle. There was encouragement to rate 1-5 (1 - feeling really detached from the Lord and His Word; 5 - feeling near to Jesus and seeing growth spiritually)
