National Marriage Week
It’s National Marriage Week and I am so excited!
What is National Marriage Week?
From February 7th to 14th every year— is a collaborative effort to encourage many diverse groups to strengthen individual marriages, reduce the divorce rate, and build a stronger marriage culture, which in turn helps curtail poverty and benefits children.
You can find out more information from the Official Site: National Marriage Week USA
I am pleased to announce that I was able to participate in a creation of an ebook, Stay Connected : 18 Mediations to Help You Build A Marriage That Works ! This ebook was created with several other marriage educators and designed especially for National Marriage Week. You can find my contribution on page 16 of the ebook, which will give you a little more insight on my personal marriage journey. This is a free resource for you to download! You will find this ebook under the Resources Tab at the top of the home page.
During this Week I have 2 challenges for your and your Spouse:
1- Date Night Challenge: I have written 2 posts on the importance of date night, but have you taken the step to initiate a date night? During National Marriage Week plan a 2-hour date night with your spouse. This does not have to be away from home or spend any extra funds. Just 2 hours of one on one time doing something that you and your spouse finds enjoyable.
2- A Love Letter Challenge- Yes, a love letter challenge! When was the last time that you wrote your spouse a love letter, or when was the last time you received a love letter? Sit down and put into writing the reasons you love your spouse, reasons you appreciate your spouse, things you enjoy doing together, and even some things that you would enjoy doing more or begin to do.
I am hosting another Giveaway!
This giveaway will be in a separate post so be looking for it!
Upcoming Posts :
I will be sharing three Married Couples and One Engaged Couple Love stories during this week as well as Tips form Real Marriages!
I am launching “ A Loving Lasting Marriage” Facebook page!
To reach more couples, get more insights, and just spread the word about “A Loving Lasting Marriage” I have created a facebook page. Will you please join this page and share it with your friends.
My original intent for this blog was to catch a glimpse of the elements that create a “ Loving Lasting Marriage” such as one would do on a warm summer’s eve to lighting bugs in a jar . To create topics and ask questions for couple’s in varying stages of relationships and marriage to give their tips, advice, and insights. During 2012 I hope to tie together these insights to help others create or maintain their “ Loving Lasting Marriage”. I would like to thank each one of you that has added to our jar ! Please continue to be apart of this great effort to help ourselves through helping one another !
