Traci at Ordinary Inspirations hosted a two-week love dare, and I decided to participate. Honestly, I wasn't expecting much to come from it (no offense, Traci), but...
I can honestly say my marriage has improved in the last two weeks.
I think just daily (or almost daily if I am being honest here) having a goal, an idea or something to focus on in terms of being a more loving wife made it easier to be one. Not only do I think it became easier to be a better wife, but it got easier to be a better mom and a better Jesus-follower.
So what now?
I think I am going to locate and dust off and use the Love Dare book I purchased a couple of years ago to help keep a good thing going. It takes time to build good habits of thankfulness, gracefulness, gentleness, and so on, but what better use of my time than to improve myself, my marriage, and my family.
