Marriage: A Sacred Dance

A basic understanding of God, and how He created humans, will help develop deeper intimacy in marriage.

A couple in love look into each other's eyes.

Responding to the Music

God has called husbands and wives to serve as unique vessels of His love for the other.

Created for Connection

Human beings have an innate desire to connect, to experience dynamic relationships with one another.
