The #1 Skill Needed for Deeper Passion in Marriage

By Artie Davis

It’s called being a skilled communicator.

My wife and I (Georgie) have been married almost thirty years and it still amazes me how hard we have to work to keep passion in our relationship. Yeah we do all the “right” things…

– We go on date nights

– We are very affectionate toward one another

– Each supports and encourages the other in their dreams

– You know the rest…Blah, Blah, Blah…


It reminds me of 1 Corinthians 13, we can do this list like Jedi-Marriage-Masters and still fail. I tell you the truth, if all those things are done with out skilled communication, it will not work to it’s potential. You will find yourself tired and worn out!

Skilled communication takes decades to master, years of being a practitioner and many lost pints of blood on the sacred ground of marriage!


It’s worth it! knowing how to communicate in transparency, honesty with love and grace will take your relationship to unexplored heights spiritually, emotionally and yes sexually.

If you want to improve your marriage in ANY area, begin learning and improving your skills at communication, it works every time.
