About the broadcast:
There's a lot of truth to the saying, "Couples who pray together, stay together." But perhaps like many other couples, your devotional time with your spouse must compete with the demands of daily living. That was certainly the case for author Jim Burns and his wife, Cathy. A mentor advised the Burns to renew their commitment by starting with a weekly 20-minute "appointment" dedicated to devotion and prayer, and the couple was amazed at the positive difference it made in their marriage. Listen in as Jim offers advice on how couples can overcome obstacles to building intimacy in a discussion based on his and Cathy's book Closer: 52 Devotions to Draw Couples Together.
