Winter Series: Kicks Off January 8

"His Needs; Her Needs: Habits For A LifeTime of Passion"

In this powerful series, we will look at the process of becoming irresistible to each other:

Discover the Love Bank- a way to understand how emotions keep track of the way a husband and wife treat each other in marriage. Cultivate passion by developing habits that maximize Love Bank deposits:

  • A wife tends to find her husband irresistible when he learns to create an environment of affection that clearly and repeatedly expresses his love for her, sets aside time every day just to talk to her with undivided attention and interest, is completely honest and open with her, provides financial support for her, and is committed to the moral and educational development of their children.
  • A husband tends to find his wife irresistible when she learns to join him in a sexual relationship they both find satisfying and enjoyable, become his favorite recreational companion, manages her overall appearance in a way that he finds physically attractive, manages household responsibilities, and understands and appreciates him more than anyone else.
  • Resolve marital conflict by finding solutions that avoid Love Bank withdrawals.

Led by Pastor Joel Slater and his wife Amy.
