➡️ “You don’t know why I’m upset? Don’t you know me at all?!”
➡️ “I try to talk to you, but I don’t feel like you even hear me or really understand…”
➡️ “I can’t remember the last time we actually had a deep conversation.”
Maybe you’re disappointed because you’ve tried being vulnerable but your spouse inadvertently shut you down and dismissed the conversation. Or maybe you’re feeling helpless because you’ve tried bringing up your concerns with your spouse but nothing has changed and you’re unsure how to connect on a deeper level.
Listening well, vulnerability, and mutual respect are some of the hardest parts of marriage. But without them, your relationship may never reach the level of intimacy you desire.
In order to connect with your spouse on a deeper level, you need practical skills and simple strategies for developing a deeper understanding of one another. We’ve spent countless years researching and sharing these transformative relationship skills with married couples just like you. When 2020 hit us with a global pandemic, we went from face-to-face marriage classes and events to a completely digital presence. With couples spending more time together than ever before, we knew it was critical to share what we had discovered over the years: The 5 simple steps for couples to create a deeper, more fulfilling marriage.
We are passionate about helping couples move past the shallow end of just existing in their marriage, to really thriving in the deep end together. When we discovered these 5 simple steps, we knew we had something LIFE-CHANGING that we HAD to share with as many couples as possible.
