Why We Play

When couples become more deeply connected, other issues and challenges start to magically dissolve and dissipate within the new found connection. And we want nothing more than to see you experience more “in-love” moments in your relationship.

WARNING: Side effects may include more fireworks in the bedroom.

Amazing !!

Thank you for these Cards! My husband and I went through a couple of them the other night and we both felt a deeper connection to each other after just a few cards. My husband, who doesn’t show emotion told me it was hard for him to express how he feels about difficult subjects on a normal basis but these cards really helped him to open up!! It was so good for him and for me to be able to connect with him In A different way. We have been married for 15 years and together 17 years. We are trying to encourage married couples in our church to get these cards as well!!

This is more than a conversation starter! These cards are really helping my husband and I to have deep conversations. This is especially helpful to have during the week days when we want to connect but are honestly pretty exhausted at the end of the day, with two small kids at home. I really really recommend these cards!

The cards are one of the best tools I have ever seen to encourage: real, open, honest, and honoring conversation. They create a fair way to describe thoughts, feelings, and responses to your spouse in a way where both parties feel heard and understood. There was one topic I had been trying to figure out how I was going to bring up for weeks. After one card, I was able to calmly express my confusion and frustration. That led to a better understanding for both my wife and me in the topic. I HIGHLY recommend every couple use these consistently on or after date nights!

Lockdown and Communication

Many of us are spending much more time with our spouses than we usually would (Thank you Covid-19)… so that means we are closer, right? Maybe in proximity, but true connection is not just about our physical location. These CONNECTION CARDS bridge the communication gap to bring us emotionally closer together. We are learning new things about each other and are able to have those deeper discussions that we crave but sometimes seem elusive. We are finding ourselves in totally different circumstances and facing new challenges than ever before but thanks to the Connection Cards we are able to better understand each other! ~Rick and April.

My husband and I love these cards! Not only do they make us feel more connected as we’re using them, but we can also use things we’ve learned from the cards in our everyday lives. <3
