I don’t cook dinner very often. I think Jean prefers it that way. Her degree is in biochemistry. Not only is she smart, but she naturally thinks in terms of precision. Recipes are to be followed. If the instructions call for one cup of flour, she’ll measure exactly one cup. She’ll even use a knife to scrape off the excess, so the amount is perfect. She’ll even add more if it’s not quite full.
As for me, well, let’s just say I’m a “free spirit.” Scraping away excess flour is a waste of time to me. I throw ingredients together in a bowl and trust that my measurements are close enough to make the recipe work.
More often than not, my cooking could be described as “missing something.” My dinners are good, but they’re not great. They usually need a little salt, a little pepper … a little “something” to really make them come alive.
A little spice can make a big difference.
It’s true for a recipe, and it’s true for a marriage.
Maybe you have a good relationship, but not a great one. Maybe your marriage could benefit from a little “something” to make it really come alive. If so, you’ll want to join us for our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Adding Some Spice to Your Marriage.”
In a message recorded at a Date Night Challenge Comedy Edition, Pastor Ted Cunningham combines his sense of humor with great advice for enjoying more connection and intimacy in your marriage.
A rich marriage isn’t something couples find, it’s something they create. You and your spouse can learn to enjoy one another. Learn how on your local radio station, online, on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or on our free phone app.
I’d like to extend an invitation for you to become a special partner with us through our monthly “Friends of Focus on the Family” program. When you do, I’ll send you a copy of our DVD Date Night Challenge: Comedy Edition as a way of saying thank you for touching others with the love of Christ. You’ll also receive member-exclusive benefits. To make your pledge, or for more information, visit our website or call 1-800-A-FAMILY (232-6459).
