Relationship Challenges That Create Connection and Spark

Are you stuck in your relationship?

Is the subject of space or separation on the table?

Relationships are bound to hit obstacles, moments that if not properly addressed can end it all. The focus of this article is to help couple’s overcome hurdles by focusing on challenges that create growth, connection, and spark.

I’m asking for you to engage in one of the following 12 challenges that help struggling couples.


1. Attend one counseling session individually with the focus on relationship support.


2. Attend one couples counseling session.


3. Reach out to a trusted unbiased person. A person that you and your partner find trust, compassion, and empathy in. If you are willing, allow this person to provide feedback to your relationship.


4. Visit your church to speak with a pastor, priest or a support person. Focus on the relationship.
