An important way you can grow in spiritual intimacy with your spouse is to recognize how God created you and your partner to connect to Him. We are each made with different spiritual temperaments, and when we recognize the way our spouse is designed, we can more easily find opportunities and activities together that will support and encourage their connection to God. In this video, Dr. Chris Grace and Alisa Grace discuss the importance of understanding how your spouse connects to God.
