Your journey into deeper intimacy starts with figuring out where you are.
Do you remember the days of MapQuest and folded paper maps? I’m glad those days are behind us! Today we all have a GPS in our pockets, purses and cars, giving us immediate and accurate navigation with just a few clicks. A GPS is a fabulous navigational tool.
Wouldn’t it be great if we had the same kind of tool for our marriage relationship? Enter the destination “Deeper Intimacy” and click the “find route” button and the app would list out step by step instructions for steering your relationship to this destination.
Chart Your Course
The intimacy in your marriage is on one of two paths: The Path of Intimacy or the Path of Separation. There is no middle ground between the two where you simply manage your degree of separation. Intimacy is organic and alive, and it simply doesn’t work that way.
You probably know whether you and your spouse are currently on a path that has you growing together or on one that has you growing apart. Either way, chances are good that you both wish you had more intimacy in your marriage. All the research I’ve done and polls I’ve conducted in the past seven years point to the fact that intimacy is the one thing that everyone longs to have more of in their marriage.
Unfortunately, the “Route to Intimacy” app doesn’t exist, but I have created an online tool that will at least help you assess your “current location” as it pertains to the level of intimacy in your marriage. I’ve developed the Intimacy Assessment to help couples take an honest look at how well connected they are in several key dimensions of intimacy: emotional, physical, spiritual, and financial. There are separate assessments for husbands and wives, each with 25 multiple-choice questions. After submitting your answers, you will receive detailed scores in each area of intimacy as well as a total score and summary assessment. You will also get a copy of your results by email.
To get started on your journey into deeper intimacy, I encourage you (and your spouse) to take the Intimacy Assessment by clicking on the appropriate button below.
A Guide Book
I developed the Intimacy Assessment as part of the launch of my new Kindle book, The Path of Intimacy, which will be released in just a few weeks. I wrote this book to help guide couples as they seek to build deeper, long-lasting intimacy. I’m very excited about this book and the help it will be to so many marriages!
The Path of Intimacy is the first book in my Igniting Intimacy series, which I’ll be releasing throughout 2018. I can hardly wait to share all these new resources, which I hope and pray will strengthen your bond with your spouse and inspire you to reach the destination you’ve always dreamed of. for your marriage.
Stay tuned next week for more details!
