What We Have Been Writing

Physical nakedness with our spouse is good.
Emotional nakedness with our spouse is equally as important.

A good marriage requires no secrets. Complete openness.

Gen 2:25.

The Couple Project


It’s not about me.
It’s about *we*.

Make sure your choices are what is best for your marriage. Not simply what you want.

Selfishness has no place in a marriage.

The Couple Project


Questions to ask yourself before bringing up a concern:

  • Is this an ongoing issue
  • Is this the right time to bring this up
  • Will NOT bringing this up allow problems to become worse

Being open with concerns, can increase love, connection

What We Have Been Reading

The real deathblow to marriages isn't how often you two fight, but how often you fail to resolve the issue.

Conflict isn't the end of the world and you can't make an omelette without cracking some eggs.

Joe Horton | Guild of Dads


It’s okay to love your spouse and be annoyed with them sometimes.

That’s kind of how it works.

Jack and Kenz | Marriage Awesomeness


Marriage isn’t a choice; It is a MILLION choices, every single day. Love is a verb. And a muscle. The more we CHOOSE to use it, the stronger it grows.
