Whether you need to stabilize shaky foundations or just want to make a good marriage even better, here's how to - Identify and get the most from you and your partner's different personality traits using a brief, eye-opening self test - Weed out common "romance busters" that drain the excitement from your marriage - Resolve conflicts quickly using a simple three-step peace process - Prevent daily responsibilities from robbing you of real intimacy ...And more.

Interactions - a powerful, challenging tool for building deep relationships between you and your group members, and you and God. Interactions is far more than another group Bible study.
