Marriage is an awesome thing. It’s God’s plan for most of us. And part of that plan is for us to have a passionate marriage. “Hmm …” I can hear some people saying.
Let me shock you. It’s not just you. It’s not just your marriage.
Passion dies eventually … in 100% of marriages. 100% !! according to author and marriage counsellor Dr David Clarke. But there is something you can do about that.
Anyone who’s been married for any length of time will be able to tell you all about the brick wall that can grow up between this man and this woman who love each other so much.

That was never God’s plan. Find out how you can stop that from happening – with 3 powerful things that you can do to tear down the wall in your marriage.
One brick at a time.
