How to Make Your Marriage Stronger - Part 4

Step Four: Picture Your Future
Visual language is powerful. Craft a visual treasure map to help create the future you want to share.
Cut photos from magazines that illustrate the essence of your ideal life together and paste them in your personal marriage manual. Superimposed photos of yourself in a picture of that fabulous vacation spot, or cut out a happy family picture that represents how you'd like it to be, with the number of kids you’d like to have.
Visual cues give strong messages to the subconscious. Working together to find the images, and placing them in the book, will begin to expand your picture of life together.
These images are as powerful as prayers. In fact, they are visual prayers.
