Looking for the best couples devotional for your Christian marriage? Reading couples devotionals is a wonderful way for married couples to grow closer to God (and to build a strong marriage).
My husband and I learned a long time ago how much we need to make couples devotions a habit–especially because we are in the thick of the exhilarating-but-exhausting parenting years.
Marriage devotionals give us great insight, perspective and wisdom. Best of all, reading couples devotions together get us in God's word together (which always changes us for the better!).
If you're looking to grow closer to your spouse and to be the best wife or husband that you can be, check out these 8 incredible couples devotionals, including our pick for the best couples devotional overall.
Why Every Marriage Needs a Good Couples Devotional
As Christian couples, we need to regularly invest in our marriages. Our marriages are being attacked daily, and we must intentionally choose to invest in our marriage relationships in order to keep our family units strong!
My husband and I have found that reading these couples devotionals together (even if it's only once a week) has kept our marriage healthy and united–even through some incredibly difficult life circumstances such as chronic illness and job loss.
In short, these best of the best couples devotionals have helped us to keep the faith during hard times.
P.S. Maybe you're thinking “Sounds great, but we're already too busy. We just can't add in a regular couples devotions time.”
Listen, with two careers, four kids, and all kinds of extra responsibilities, my husband and I get it! And that's why I wrote this post on how to make couples devotions a reality (even if your lives are incredibly busy).
I promise–there's no guilt here… just real solutions from another Christian married couple that gets it!
