Today she’s providing a much-needed list of ideas for Father’s Day gifts. Morgan writes: Father’s Day is on Sunday, June 18th, 2017, so it’s time to think about what to get the dads in our lives… especially the fathers of our children. Don’t let the day sneak up on you and give yours another iTunes gift card because you were “too busy” to get him anything (my former, OCD self). How often have we procrastinated because we thought it would take too long to find the perfect gift? This year, let’s do Father’s Day gifts differently. This won’t

The Best Thing To Hold Onto In Life Is…

The best thing to hold on to in life is each other.” – Audrey Hepburn My husband and I wake up every morning to a sign that says that exact quote. It was purposely placed to stare right at us hoping in turn we receive its message daily. Intentionally there as a reminder to us both that after God “the best thing to hold on to in life is each other!” “Each other” as in husband and wife, best friends, one with God, parents, a team, partners, lovers, wisdom and a gift from the Lord to each of us personally that should not ever be let go of.

4 Things All Great Marriages Have

Being unveiled is something that takes time to learn and grasp. Here is another awesome guest post from Kate Aldrich from One Flesh Marriage and she shares on the significance of being unveiled!  Kate writes: I spent the first 5 years of our marriage in a pretty sad place.

Master Bedroom Bliss

The master bedroom should be a place for couples to relax, re-energize and enjoy each other. I had read an article many years ago stating this wonderful idea and it has stuck with me ever since. I have always tried to keep our bedroom a special place. I decorated the room with candles and kept the piles of clutter away. I would make the bed each morning. I hung pictures of our wedding on the wall. My husband and I also created a wonderful piece of art together by painting our bodies and pressing them onto a canvas, but you can read more about that here: Body Painting. It was a priority to keep our room special. Then enter children. We have been blessed with

Healthy Marriages Start with Healthy People

But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful. Psalm 68:3 Truth be told, many of us read marriage blogs with the hope of finding that key to a happy, healthy marriage. What can we do differently, better, more intentionally to save our marriage, heal our marriage, strengthen our marriage, or improve our marriage? For a number of years, my own marriage was in the pit – a black hole of frustration and despair. I asked myself Are we going to make it? more often than I care to think about now.
