The Summer of the Intentional Marriage

Are you happily coasting along in your marriage, or would you like to take it up a notch?

If you want your marriage to thrive, consider joining me in a summer series called, "The Summer of the Intentional Marriage". This series is going to focus on the one thing we did as dating and engaged couples, but often refuse to make time for during the married years.

Date Nights.

When was the last time you had one? My husband and I don't have kids and we still struggle to make time for just the two of us. We work during the day, eat dinner, I work on my blog and writing while Joseph putters around the house, and maybe we watch a TV show together before bed. Then we wake up the next morning and do it all over again. Doesn't that sound exciting? :)

In the midst of our busy lives, children, family functions, and work, couples rarely take time out for our marriages. But dates can provide a breather from both the mundane and the fast-paced. They allow us to really focus on that number one individual in your life and put back together the pieces of our marriage that may have fallen out of place. They give us a realistic look at where we are as a couple. Not to mention, it's super fun and it doesn't have to cost a whole lot!

This series will run from June through August and will provide you with one unique date idea on the first and third Mondays of every month - by the end of the series you will have six different options to try! I will also provide link-ups on those days for those of you who have a blog and want to post pictures and a description of your date.

In the end, it really doesn't matter whether or not you follow my ideas, I simply want you and your husbands to intentionally set aside time for each other.

My blog friend, Becky, over at The Word of God and a Cup of Joe is also planning what she calls a Significant Summer. She has set goals not only for herself, but also for her kids. Feel free to visit her for more ideas!

I hope you consider following along! We start June 6th!'
