|Building blocks for a strong marriage!|
Building a Strong Foundation:
1. Make Time for Each Other. Sounds simple but this is the area where we mostly blow it. Everything gets priority over our spouse: kids, work, chores, tv, friends, sports, you name it.
Every week we should set apart 1-2 hours to spend time with our husband/wife. Have some fun, go dancing, swim in a turquoise lagoon (if you live in Hawaii or some other tropical island), talk together, go for a walk, go roller blading, etc. We call this "Marraige Time"...
The goal of "Marriage Time" is to add a little romance to our marriage, deepen our appreciation for one another, ensure we communicate regularly.
This is a first step in building a strong marriage. There is a lot more that can be written about this. If you want more information find the "Marriage Book" on your favorite book buying website or book store. The video series is a great thing to incorporate into a married peoples home group. You can even invite some of your non-christian friends!
Prayer: Father I ask in the name of Jesus that you bless the marriages of the people reading this. Amen
Thanks and God Bless,
