It’s always encouraging to read what other Christian couples have to say about their marriage and helpful tips they’ve learned in their lives. It’s great to have celebrity Christian couples out there who are open and honest about their relationship and tips for keeping their marriage on track. Here are her five of them, as well as her two quotes about each duo’s marriage. There are a total of 10 tips that you can apply to yourself as well.
Candace talks about her beloved Valeri.
Tip #2 Polish each other:
“We’ve honed each other. It can only happen by sifting through the ugly to get the beautiful. And I don’t want the years to go by too quickly, but together we’ll have more.” I’m looking forward to my wrinkles and gray hair.” Candace says.
I can sympathize with Candace’s feelings. It’s important to fall in love more, and to do that, it’s imperative to understand that your spouse isn’t the same person they were when they got married. they grow and change. And so are you. And as you grow and change, focusing on loving all the different parts of your partner’s life will probably strengthen your marriage, rather than focusing on the parts you don’t like as much. .
Polishing each other is also a great idea for a married life. It is the difficult events of life that sharpen us. My husband and I have learned through deep difficulty that when we get married we are going through these difficult events together that will either grind you down or tear you apart. Therefore, the image of this word of honing each other is the key to a strong marriage.
2. Lee Drummond and Rudd Drummond
Tip #3 Touch your feet at night:
“We touch our feet all the time at night,” Lee told People.com. “Even if one of us is a little irritated or someone else isn’t feeling it, when our feet are touching, I always know, ‘It’s okay, it’s okay.'”
Tip #4 Worship with us:
“Both Rudd and Lee are committed to cherishing their relationship with God and attending church, even when life is busy. I will go to church on she told people. “Whatever happens, it’s what we do. No matter how tired we are. I’ve seen times when we get out of there and misfortune lurks in the bush.”
I love this idea of touching my feet at night. Her husband and I gave it a try. I once suggested so after an argument when it would have been better if we had turned our backs on each other, and it really made a difference. Worshiping together has quite a few different meanings. My husband and I enjoy watching sermons and listening to praise and worship music together while exercising or driving. Let’s make worshiping together a regular part of the day, not just on Sundays.

Tip #5 spiritual foundation is important
Here’s what Denzel has to say about getting married:
“There’s no secret to a perfect marriage. I’ve been married to Pauletta for 27 years. Everyone has their ups and downs, we have ours. It’s hard work, but we make a promise.” A spiritual foundation helps everything.” – Marriage, work, peace of mind. ”
Tip #6 Listen twice as much as you speak
Denzel jokes about listening to his spouse.
“I will do what I am told. I will keep my mouth shut.” 63-year-old Academy Award winner jokingly told the people.
I love this reference made by a prominent figure in the Spiritual Foundation. This is something we don’t hear very often. Many build their foundations on wealth, fame, and ultimately crumbling. So this is new to me and very important for Christian marriage. Base it on God’s word and God’s love. Everything else is secondary.
Also, I enjoy the sense of humor here. Because a good marriage requires a good sense of humor on both sides. Both my husband and I can often empathize with following the other person’s demands rather than starting an argument. And listening is key in marriage. Listening can get you through the ups and downs, even if it’s something you don’t want to hear.

Tip #7 Let’s spend quality time together
Talking about spending time with his spouse, Mark said:
“Let’s spend quality time together” The 44-year-old actor told us. “Really, that’s what matters.”
Tip #8 let’s be best friends
“Mark and Lea have maintained their romance by being each other’s best friends, and that clearly works in their favor!”
Spending time together makes a world of difference, but is often a challenge for modern couples. Regardless of what happens, it will be one of the things you have to commit to. There were seasons in our marriage when we were only together for five minutes in secret, and there were seasons when we spent whole days just to ourselves. Instead of focusing on the length of time, focus on the fact that all time adds up and all time spent together counts. And this equates to being best friends. Most of us want to spend time with our best friends, and the same should apply to our spouses.

Tip #9 Supporting Each Other: Sacrifice and Compromise
Here’s what Carrie has to say about her marriage:
“It’s all about supporting each other. He’s my best friend and we love our family. That’s what it’s all about. We make sacrifices for each other, we compromise for each other.” , do their best to spend as much time together as possible with each other. “
Tip #10 Remember God Connected You
Support, sacrifice and compromise are all very important words when it comes to marriage. We cannot always put ourselves first and expect a strong marriage. Because we care about our spouse’s needs and desires, not just ourselves as we do when we are single.
For me, this last tip was the most important of all. I am reminded that God connected me with my spouse.
This is especially important during difficult times. It is often very difficult to see through the current situation, but instead of focusing on the difficult things, we can take a step back and look at the big picture of our marriage to see more clearly God’s plan for our marriage. becomes visible. relationship.
The great thing about marriage is that you don’t go through difficult things alone. There are people who physically walk next to you. Sometimes we need to comfort and support our spouse, and sometimes our spouse needs to comfort and support us.
Marriage also expresses our relationship with God and His unconditional love for us. He doesn’t fall in love with us and no relationship is perfect. We have a God of perfect love who always wants and desires what is best for us.
