1-Language

language of grace. i fell in love with your future. grace abounds in trust but trust has to be earned. grace is a free gift, and you can give it all the time. grace takes the fear out of failure.

grace allows us to build the confidence that we need to succeed and excel.

in marriage, we need to get over the fact that if someone saw us for who we really are then its over. no. its not dependent on performance. instead learn to pray the prayer of grace about your spouse and children.

sex is the celebration of love. the more you discover how amazing your spouse is, the more you will enjoy sex.

make it a habit to be best friends. make your spouse the person you want to be with the most. make friendship grow.
