After 14 years I can say that the best thing we ever did for our marriage was to intentionally invest in making it better. Based on the counsel of mentors at our church, we committed to one event each year to focus on our marriage.
I was tired of my own rollercoaster of emotions and feeling like my needs weren’t being met. We were looking into parenting classes, but what we needed was a refresher on how to do marriage well. So many women are stuck in the trap of “I guess this is my life now” after they have kids. Your marriage isn’t doing any good being stuck on the back burner. When we invested in our marriage, parenting became easier, and my emotions became more stable—simply put—life is easier when we are on the same page.
Don’t settle for a mediocre marriage—dust it off and shake it up. Bring life back into your marriage today. If you want more, today is that day. Not tomorrow, not the next day. Today. Start taking the steps to make your marriage what you always wanted it to be by taking this four-week marriage challenge.
