Marriage: Weekly Discussions (Intro)

One of our New Years Resolutions for 2019 was that we really wanted to focus on a set time every week where we would sit down, connect and really discuss some important things.  Even for the best of communicators, carving out a dedicated time and topic can be extremely helpful in building and strengthening your…
