APPENDIX E – WORKSHEET
EFFECTIVE LISTENING SELF-EVALUATION WORKSHEET
Complete the Loving Communication Self-Evaluation to help you become more aware of your listening habits. Answer each question thoughtfully and honestly, then discuss as a couple.
This homework should be completed each time there is unloving communication between a husband and wife, until the understanding is complete and the practice of forgiveness and reconciliation becomes a regular part of the relationship.
Communicating Knowledge and Attitudes
Note: Make sure you complete both pages of this self-evaluation.
Effective Listening Self-Evaluation Scoring Index
Select the number that represents the category you checked on each item of the Effective Listening Self-Evaluation.
110-120: Superior Listener

We have also included a companion worksheet, Improve Your Loving Communication Habits in the Appendices for your edification. This should be used along with the self-evaluation worksheet when you see unloving communication being exhibited.
Remember: a true disciple of Christ is not simply trying to acquire intellectual knowledge; a true disciple invests himself/herself to learn and to live according to the principles God teaches in his Word. Your investment in learning and living according to the principles God reveals to you through this material will transform your life as God desires.
