Are you ever frustrated by your spouse’s differences? We understand that struggle! It was not until we realized that our wires were crossed that we were able to turn from frustration to fascination! This Double Date with Mark and Jill is all about how to embrace the way that God has made your spouse, and the way He has made you!

Talk About It:

  • Take the time to go through the personal operating inventory together. Where do we fall in each category?
  • How can we use our specific wiring to work together effectively?
  • Are we meeting each other in the middle? How can we respect each other’s differences by making decisions that benefit both of us?

Think About It:

  • How can I move from frustration to fascination at my spouse’s differences?
  • Have I accepted and embraced the way that God has wired me?
  • How can I use my wiring to bless and support my spouse?
