- Ask for God’s direction and keep it simple.
- Think about God’s purpose for your marriage.
- Brainstorm some core values you share as a couple (faith, prayer, hospitality, peace, service…), then select 3-5 that you both agree stand out and attach scripture passages to each.
- Optional: Develop a short phrase for each. For example, “Hospitality – Our home will be joyfully open to those the Lord brings our way.”

- Where have you struggled most in your marriage; confession or forgiveness?
- Which of these principles do you find most difficult to execute on?
- Can you share a time when confession and forgiveness brought healing to your marriage? Or when it has gone wrong?
- Would you include any additional principles? If so, what would you add?
- Are you in the habit of evaluating yourself, or do you just let the days and years roll on by without much thought? If not, why not?
- Which person do you tend towards; the wise who welcomes evaluation, or the fool who runs from it, blame shifts, or makes excuses?
- Have you asked your spouse, or a close friend, for input? How did that go?
- How might you provide feedback more effectively or gently?
