How 15 Minutes Can Change Your Marriage
Dr. Josh Straub
Falling in love is the easy part. But what about staying in love? So often, the busyness and frenetic pace of life we live slowly leads to emotional disconnection over time with “the love of our life.” Our relationship becomes more about the business of the day and the kids than it does about what’s happening at a heart level. In this talk, Josh tells the defining moment when he and his wife Christi’s intimacy hit rock bottom. As a result, they made a dramatic shift in their marriage by purposefully utilizing very simple principles of connection with only 15 minutes a day. Learn the principles and how to apply them to your own marriage to rediscover and build intimacy with the one you love.
