||Clean3. The Temperament God Gave Your Spouse||In their bestselling book, "The Temperament God Gave You", authors Art and Laraine Bennett re-introduced the age-old concept of the four classic temperaments, and showed how to use them to understand yourself, get along with others, and grow closer to God. Now they're back with more temperament wisdom, designed specially for couples and guaranteed to improve your marital communication, intimacy, and happiness: "The Temperament God Gave Your Spouse". ln no other kind of human relalionship is knowledge of the temperaments - the fundamental personality traits that affect the way we respond to the world around us - so critical and so fruitful for a Christian marriage. For it's only through mutual understanding of our own patterns of reaction, and those of our spouse, that we can love each other with the selfless patience to which Christ calls us in the sacrament.||3/14/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
