My life is busy. My life is beyond busy. My life is so busy it is crazy. Between private tutoring, homeschooling, grad school, and family life, I feel like I barely get a chance to breath. Teaching my children is one of my top priorities, and sometimes I forget to take the time to appreciate other people (ahem…my husband). At the end of the day, after teaching, cleaning, playing, learning, I do not really feel like doing anything. To make it even more difficult, my husband works late often. On an early day, he is home by 6:45 (once a week). Regular days, he is home by 7:45. Twice a week, he is home after 9:30. He gets home around my bed time (or at least when I wish I was in bed), and it is hard to want to be a good wife to him when all I can think about is counting sheep. Our marriage is great (also greatly imperfect), and he is super supportive, but I want to give him more…more than just a quick phone call that is interrupted by crying children…more than a half-hour a night watching a TV show. Then, I found our copy of The Love Dare by Stephen and Alex Kendrick. This book is a few years old and we never started it, but I thought it would be worth a try!
My goal through this book is to help make our marriage even stronger. My husband has no idea I am about to do this, and I am excited to see what rewards we get from it. I want our marriage to stay strong through the times we are surrounded by craziness, because all to soon it will just be the two of us. I do not want to wake up one day and feel like I have a stranger next to me. I love my husband now, and I want us to be strong always! Join me on my (secret) adventure! Each day, I will be reading through The Love Dare and implementing the dares it gives me. Each Tuesday, I will be posting about my experience. I would love if you all would read this book with me and work on completing the dares. Feel free to leave comments on each post I make about my own experience. I would love to hear how it is going for you!
