Strawberry Picking Date – Plus FREE Printables!

Treat yourself to some fun in the sun with your sweetheart! Then head back home for an even sweeter treat!

 

Picking strawberries has been a tradition in my family for as long as I can remember!    Almost every spring when I was a child, my mom would load my brother and I in the car and we would head down the road to our (amazing!) local strawberry farm. Every year they allow guests to come out in the fields with a basket and pick their own strawberries! We always had the best time and made memories that I will definitely cherish forever.

laugh your way to a better marriage

Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage

“I don’t understand why this is so difficult!” I mumbled under my breath as I was washing the huge pile of dishes in the sink. He knows I hate when he leaves food in the bowls and then puts them in the sink! Why doesn’t he just do what I ask him to do?! It would be so much easier on me if he would stop doing this!

 

If you know me really well, you know I despise doing dishes. I would rather scrub the toilet with a toothbrush than touch a dirty dish that has been sitting in the sink for days. Just something about the smelly water and old food stains makes me want to hurl. My husband hates doing laundry just as much as I hate doing dishes. So, we finally ended up making an agreement. He does the dishes, I do the laundry.

Becoming One: A 30-Day Devotional for Wives

Are you ready to have a deeper, more intimate connection with your husband while also growing closer to the Lord? My devotional “Becoming One” will encourage and equip you to do just that!

When I got married, I realized that there were not a lot of helpful, biblical resources out there for young or newly-married wives! I began to notice that a lot of wives in their first few years of marriage were really struggling. They needed practical marriage advice explaining what to do about certain situations such as finance problems, who does household chores, what to do about extended family issues, etc. None of those topics were covered in a standard devotional. Then the idea for this devotional was born!

A Love Letter to My Husband on a Day When I Don’t Feel Too Good about Myself

To my sweet husband,

I know you probably get tired of hearing me complain on days like this.

Some days I just wake up, look in the mirror, and realize how disgusted I am with myself. The way I look, the way I talk, and the way I dress just repulses me at times. I ramble on about how my pants are too tight, my face is broken out, and my hair just won’t do what I want it to do. I complain about my failures and tell you how I’m a horrible wife whose house isn’t spotless or even remotely clean for that matter. I don’t always have everything together. I get lazy and run behind on things. I don’t always love you like I should and that burns me to my core.

How to Truly Become One With Your Husband – Plus Free Printable Prayer Cards!

My husband and I have always felt connected as one, even before we were married.

During our dating years, we were not one physically, but we always felt like the same person emotionally and spiritually. For the most part, we always think the same way. He knows what I’m going to say before I even say it. I know what he is going to do before he even does it. We have the same values, same goals, same style, and same outlook on life. We just click, and we always have. We strongly believe that when God was creating us, He made us specifically for each other.

I’ve been at a loss for words as to what to write about this week. I’m kind of hoping that the words will come to me as I sit here staring at my computer screen.

 

Considering what all has happened in my life this past week, you would think I would be exploding with words. But I’m having a hard time turning the feelings I have into actual, meaningful words.

Getting engaged is such an exciting time for every couple! It’s a time when you realize that your life is about to change forever in an unbelievably amazing way. It’s a moment when you take the next step towards making a commitment to be with the one you love, forever. When you look at that ring, you see a symbol of your unending love for another person and you begin to thank God endlessly for answering all your prayers. I know I felt that way when I got engaged! I often reminisce on Steven’s proposal to me and what a special day it was for both of us.
