I was just thinking back to when my husband and I were engaged. I loved that 6 month season of our relationship.

Fireproof: A Movie For Every Marriage | Review

About 5 years ago my husband and I watched Fireproof, a faith-based film that follows a marriage through brokenness to restoration. I thought I had reviewed it and shared it on my blog for others to know about, but I checked recently and didn’t see it. Despite being nearly 8 years old, this movie is very relevant for every marriage. I highly recommend it.  I rented it from Amazon recently for the second time and took a few notes.

Spontaneous Date Night On Elk Lake | Vlog #7

A little over a month ago Aaron and I randomly decided to have a fun and spontaneous date night mid-week. The summer weather was warm and we wanted to enjoy it together. We also thought it would be fun to kidnap another couple and make it a double date. When we called up our friends Sean and Natasha, they were already on a date out near Mt.

7 Ideas For Finding Family Time: When Work Schedules Try to Prevent It

This is a guest post by Danielle who provides a list of beautiful ways to find time to spend together as a family. I hope you are as inspired as I was to invest in time spent with my family, even in the busy seasons.  Danielle Writes:  My husband has a schedule that is never the same from day-to-day and week-to-week. He often works nights and a few weekend days a month. Sometimes he’s home in the mornings, sometimes in the evenings, but never consistently one or the other for more than a day or two. It makes it very difficult to have date nights, be involved in small groups at church, or spend much time with friends. We have to plan our life a
