21 Ways To Intentionally Love Your Husband Every Day

With Valentine’s Day approaching, many of us are focused on how we can love our husband in big ways: buy him a new watch, cook him a gourmet dinner, go all out and spend the big bucks. And that’s great, but Valentine’s Day isn’t every day, and I can’t cook a gourmet dinner every night. This year, I want to be more intentional, and one of the ways I want to be intentional is in loving my husband. Sure, I tell him “I love you” approximately 674 times a day, but am I being intentional in SHOWING him that I love him every day? Most days, the answer is no. If you’re like me, you might need these 21 ways to intentionally love your husband every day.

One Piece of Advice For A Beautiful Marriage

People say that marriage is hard, but we haven’t experienced that. We’ve been in difficult life situations, sure, but marriage is the good part of it.

There's lots of Christian marriage advice out there, but this one piece of advice needs to be the foundation of your marriage.

The Perfect Way To Make Your Spouse Feel Appreciated Every Day

Caleb and I have been married for a little over 6 months. Time has flown by and it has been an absolutely wonderful adventure. Time and again, I’ve heard people say that marriage is hard, and I disagree. But one thing that I do think is difficult is remembering to tell your spouse how much you appreciate them. Sure, they know you love them, and that’s a vital part of marriage. But do they know how much you like them? How great you think they are? How much you appreciate them? Maybe not, and it can be easy to forget to tell them, especially in the midst of a busy season. But after much thought, I’ve come up with the perfect way to make your spouse feel appreciated every day.

10 Things We Learned In Our First 100 Days Of Marriage

10 things we learned in our first 100 days of marriage

Today is July 4th, Independence Day. It is a day of celebration for our country. We are proud to be Americans. But for us, it’s another celebration, as well. Today, Caleb and I have been married 100 days! Yaaayyyyy! It’s been amazing, and we know that it will only be greater as we go. We are enjoying our life now and we are so excited for the future and everything that it holds. 🙂

I read a blog post the other day from Heaven and Hearth entitled Marriage Isn’t Hard (click the link to visit that post). Kali is wise beyond her years. In her post, she talks about how the phrase “marriage is hard, but worth it” has essentially become a mantra in the Christian culture. She disagrees, as do I. Is marriage worth it? Absolutely. Is marriage hard? No. Sin is hard, and we are sinful creatures. “But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect.” [1 Corinthians 15:10] God’s grace enables us to live a life pursuing His holy desires, and enables our marriages to be filled with grace, love, and mercy.

This is not to say that hard times will not come. Many of you will look at this and roll your eyes because we’ve been married a little over three months and of course nothing difficult could have happened during that time. (You would be wrong.) In fact, quite a few people have told us something to the effect of, “Oh, sure, marriage is good in the beginning, but you just wait.” If that is you, please stop. Speak life into newlyweds, please. We know that there will be difficult paths to navigate, but by the grace of God and with His mercy, we will triumph.

Marriage is good. We love it. We love each other. We’ve learned a lot about each other, marriage, and God in the last 100 days, and we want to share some of that with you. Continue Reading
