Need a sign to know if your marriage is thriving or struggling today? The clues are standing at your own front door:
How do you feel when your spouse walks in at the end of the day?
Are you greeting with a kiss or a cold shoulder?
Do you feel eager to connect and share the events of the day?
Is your spouse the reason you’re excited to come home?
If your stress goes up and your happiness goes down when your spouse comes through the door, chances are you’re suffering from a “joy gap” in your marriage. Today’s guests, Marcus Warner and Chris Coursey, are here with a super-encouraging message to help us grow close and refresh the joy in our relationships. They help us to understand
- How two pastors utilize both brain science and scripture to minister to couples
- Why joy is the key element to a strong marriage
- Why it’s possible to “train your brain” to grow your joy together
- Practical ways to connect in simple, powerful ways with your spouse
- How fear drives couples further apart
- How to protect your “joy zones” from stress and conflict
- How to meet God as the true Source of joy
