5 Ways to grow spiritually with your spouse

Go On a Wild Adventure Together

Plan a treasure hunt. The surprise adventure of finding the clues will lead you closer to each other. I remember one evening when we had an event that was cancelled. I had already lined up overnight childcare. I stood in the grocery store and prayed that God would show me a way to be creative. While Wayne dropped the kids off, I ran the hot water for the jacuzzi. I had laid out an indoor treasure hunt that made my husband smile.

Join A Small Group that Makes You Think

When you grow closer to God, you will grow closer to each other. What attracted me to Wayne was his love for God. You can grow closer to your spouse as you build positive relationships with others.

Have Sex!

Yes! Great Sex is key to a Great Marriage. Sex is war (against the enemy). When you come together sexually, there is a freedom to be emotionally and spiritually more connected too! There have been times when I have been in a fight with my husband and I sense God prompting me to make love to him. In faith, when I concentrate on being one sexually it has removed the tension and brought oneness.

Have a Daily Spiritual “Check-in” Question
