I am pretty sure wives will read the title of this post and think “I know a thing or two about that!” 🙂
Last week, a lady approached my husband and I with this question;
“You seem to have an amazing connection as a couple, how do you cultivate it?”
I looked at my husband. Then listened as he took time to share what has helped us over the years – building our friendship, conversation, enjoying each other, creating good memories.
Later as I reflected on our conversation, I marveled at how “easy”… READ MORE
Most people have asked the question “Why do I exist?”. But very few have asked themselves “Why does my marriage exist?”
A while back I posed the question to a few couples and for some it was the first time they’d ever thought about their marriage having a purpose.
When we think about marriage, we think companionship, raising kids, building careers. And there’s nothing wrong with… READ MORE
It’s the beginning of the year and if you are like me you are thinking about what to do and how to be in 2016.
I tell you, I am dreaming lofty dreams. No not the ones we snatch from thin air because they are fancy and feed the achiever-holic in us.
No these dreams of mine are the life kind. I suspect you might be having similar dreams? Hopes and aspirations for life..real every day life.
Dogged hopes for your job, your home,… READ MORE
I am one of those people who are challenged when it comes to creative gift giving.
It’s strange considering I write and once made a living making hand-made jewelry!
But creativity is something I have to work at. My husband will tell you that after 7 years of marriage, he’s received a fair share of bleh combos – the token socks/undies/Tshirt!
But I try. And I’ve learned that for everything I am not… READ MORE
It’s been heartbreaking, watching all the sad happenings in the world.
The New York Daily News, a top-circulating news paper here in the US recently splashed the headline “God Isn’t Fixing This” after the horrific California mass shooting early this month.
The headline was a response to “our thoughts and prayers are with you” Tweets from top political leaders.
Sadly, the idea… READ MORE
Last week I was sitting in a Subway restaurant, waiting for my husband to finish up a meeting.
I am currently reading Sheet Music: Uncovering the Secrets of Sexual Intimacy in Marriage, by Dr Kevin Leman and I come across these words;
“Men are more fragile than most women realize. They want to be pleasers and their feelings get hurt far more than many women will ever know”
Sorry if you just dropped your cofee!… READ MORE
We live in interesting times…though I think every generation would say the same thing about the times they lived in because what I am about to say has more to do with our nature than the times.
As human beings, we are “herdy” by nature.
By that I mean, we like the familiar; situations, people, things. Not always intentionally or consciously so, but generally we tend to be cautious with the unknown and … READ MORE
One of my favorite marriage bloggers Sheila Gregoire has just released a new book! It’s called 9 Thoughts That Can Change Your Marriage and it takes you on a journey on what you as a wife can do, to change or improve your marriage.
I want to highlight some of the 9 thoughts but first I want to tell you how I came to know Sheila;
I was a new bride. Obsessed with marriage and my husband. But in over my head as a wife.
Things were… READ MORE
My husband once wrote a blog. He was going through some of his writing yesterday and came across this thought and I knew I have to share it with you.
Before I share it, here’s the foundation. Early-wed wives are magnets for ideas. (ps. I know we have many olderweds in this community too – as well as guys! I address the early-weds in my articles because they are my primary audience, but I love having you here and… READ MORE
