In my opinion, this is the best Bible App out there and is very robust in helping you to build your relationship with God. This app has so many features it's hard to note them all and it's something you need to see to believe. You can download the app here or in your app store. You can also watch this short video tutorial of what's in the app and how to navigate it on our YouTube Channel, https://youtu.be/3Rc4ty36dzM
It's remembering this statement, "It's always going to be difficult to have a thriving relationship with other people if you don't have a thriving relationship with God." We've got to remember that it all starts with us and our relationship with God and how healthy that relationship is. The depth of our relationship with Christ is determined by how we do with these four things, spending daily time in Prayer and the Study of God's Word, Being Active in a Local Church, and Being in Christian Community consistently . All of these things will determine what our walk and relationship with God looks like and how much victory you experience in life.
If we're not healthy spiritually, our relationships with our spouse, kids, and anyone else in our lives will just not be as healthy as they should or could be! Get your relationship right with the Lord, get close to Him, and the rest of the relationships in your life will start to fall in place and get to where you want them to be. The YouVersion Bible App is a great help in helping you to achieve this!
It Starts With You! Follow this link and consider reading the book.
Well, first off, download the YouVersion Bible App as you see in the question above and do a devotional together.
Another great thing you could do is look at Fierce Marriage. FM is a fantastic resource for many different types of tools, videos, podcasts and more. This is one particular set of tools I would encourage every couple to purchase and start using.
