Getting to know you…

marriage warrior Feb 28, 2021

We can be married for years and still miss out on knowing the most basic things about each other. Sometimes without realizing it, we miss the details.  Share with each other about some of your favorite things. Use this list as a starting point, get creative and have some fun. Tell each other your favorite or for even more fun guess what your spouse will say:

  • Color
  • Food
  • Song
  • Candy
  • Flower
  • Outfit
  • Restaurant
  • Vacation
  • Childhood memory
  • Your family memory
  • and so on...

Take notes so you don't forget. This list can be handy when you have a special occasion.

Valentine's getaway...

marriage warrior Feb 08, 2021

Find at least one night to getaway with your wife to celebrate your relationship.  Lydia and I just got back from three nights together in an Air BnB that was long overdue. Just being away from every day life and focusing on each other is important to recharge, reignite, and resurrect.

Financial check-up...

marriage warrior Jan 25, 2021

2020 is behind us.  Most of the bills are in and it is a good time to review expenses and income for the past year.  Determine where you did well and where you need to improve. Set some goals for 2021 and create your budget.  Perhaps you want to pay off debt,  save more for college or retirement,  or go on a dream vacation.  Work together with your wife to make your plan.  If you need help in budgeting, Dave Ramsey has some great materials and courses to help.

Cleaning up...

marriage warrior Jan 04, 2021

As the holidays are coming to an end, don't let all the clean up fall on your wife.  Take the lead and get the whole family involved in putting up the decorations, cleaning the house, and starting the new year right.  It is a good time to go through your storage area and get rid of things you don't need.  Don't forget to store lights neatly so you don't spend half of your next December untangling them :)

What's going to be different...

marriage warrior Dec 28, 2020

As 2020 comes to a close, take some time with your family to discuss the past year: the struggles, accomplishments, failures, good times together, things you wish would have been better, etc.  Have each person come up with what they want to do differently or start doing in the new year. Discuss a plan on how you are going to achieve your goals.  Write them down and put them on the refrigerator or bathroom mirror to remind yourself throughout the year, and hold each other accountable.

What were they thinking...

marriage warrior Dec 20, 2020

We have a tradition to read the Christmas story before we open any presents at Christmas. This year put all the names of the main characters in a hat and have each person draw a name: Joseph, Mary, the Shepherds, the Wise Men, Herod, the Angels, etc. Have each person share what their character was thinking on their journey to the birth of Christ.  You can find the stories in Luke 2 and Matthew 1-2.   If you have a Nativity you can have each person hold the character as they tell their story.
