2. All relationships may be strengthened through our commitment(s) to each other:

  • Discuss ways you have found to be positive in strengthening your relationships (ie. with your spouse, friends, and family)
  • In what ways have you considered specific goals to strengthen these commitments?

3. Considering the testimony of Greg & Renee this morning, how did their story affect you?  Is there anything within their relationship story that may impact your relationship story?
