SKU: 893190 An Enduring Love
In Enduring Love, Matt uses the acronym STARVED to help couples examine seven basic needs that are critical to all healthy relationships. He says, "That's what you're called to do: to make each other feel Safe (physically, financially, socially, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually), to Trust each other, to Appreciate, to Respect, to Validate, to Encourage, and to be Dedicated. " He says most relationships are lacking in one or more of these areas, but he teaches how to feed a STARVED relationship and stay on the path to building an eternal bond with your spouse. He says, "In my mind, love is meeting those seven basic needs. "
He teaches that our covenants make the difference. "You are in a covenant. . . . Your covenant is with you and the Lord and your partner. Live your covenant. Christ is the exemplar of relationships. Are you resembling your Savior? "
