How do you know you are Living Smart?
“I think I feel most that I’m Living Smart when I know that I’m in good relationship with people who are around me, especially people who are important to me—my wife, my kids, my coworkers, people like that, but also in general—that I have an attitude of treating other people the way I want to be treated, calming my own anger down, and trying to be friendly with people.“ - Don Cole
On Living Smart Don Cole will discuss how we can have an emotionally intelligent marriage.
Marriage can be difficult and despite the urge to make things work, many couples have a hard time surviving their relationship after the honeymoon faze. Dr. Donald L. Cole, D. Min. is a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Marriage and Family Counselor in the state of Texas and an approved LPC and LMFT Supervisor. He received his doctorate in ministry with specialization in psychotherapy from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in 1993.
He and his wife lead seminars and workshops at their Center for Relationship Wellness based on the Gottman method, an evidenced and research based method that studies why marriages succeed or fail. Cole is also an experienced public speaker and seminar leader and has held many workshops on a variety of topics. He currently works and lives with his wife in Friendswood, TX.
“Love seems the swiftest, but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century.”
“Men have a much better time of it than women. For one thing, they marry later; for another thing, they die earlier.”
“Happy families are all the alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”
