Putting the pieces together...

marriage warrior Jun 02, 2024

Spend an evening putting together a puzzle.  See who can find the edges first, and then begin finishing a section at a time.  See how fast you can complete it.     I suggest 500 pieces if you haven't done one in a while so it isn't too difficult. It is perfectly fine if it takes more than one night to complete.

Working together is a bonding experience.

Have tools...

Get busy doing the "to do's" your wife has asked you "to do". If you aren't necessarily a "handyman" call in some help. Get the whole family involved to enjoy some quality time together!

Resurrection day...

marriage warrior Mar 31, 2024

As we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, it is a great time to reflect on what needs to be resurrected in our own marriage or family. Is there something that has died that needs to be revived? Perhaps regular dates, family fun nights, a vacation...

Bring something back to life this week.

Take the lead...

marriage warrior Mar 24, 2024

Most wives are take charge, do whatever it takes kind of women. Unfortunately, that incredible character trait can lead to us as husbands letting them take over way too much responsibility. Despite their innate abilities, our wives need us to step up as husband and father in our family. They are looking to us to for direction and leadership. 

When our children need discipline, step in before your wife has to. When it is date night, plan the entire evening.  If there is a difficult conversation that needs to take place, start it and stay engaged. When you want to disengage, tell yourself, "Take the lead."

Your wife and children are looking to you for direction, if you aren't doing your part, start now.

Change is inevitable...

marriage warrior Mar 10, 2024

How do you and your bride respond to change? I have to admit that our family has had more than our share and lately I have been wanting more stability. Life doesn't stop because we want a time out. Set a time to discuss what has been changing lately and how you are handling it.

Your view of your situation makes all the difference in how it will ultimately turn out. You never know, your current circumstances might just lead to something more beautiful than you could ever imagine.

Best & worst...

marriage warrior Jan 28, 2024

Communication is the key to any relationship, particularly marriage. When things are not going well, communication is usually the first thing that breaks down. Keep the communication lines open.

One thing that has worked well for us is to share the best and worst thing that happened during the day. This is great to do before you go to bed and also works well with your children.

Try it each day this week, see what differences it makes in your relationship.
