We celebrated by spending the day with our grandkids, spending the evening with friends and family on our boat in the annual Parade of Lights Boat parade — and drum roll please– our soon to release NEW BOOK:
Having made it together 40 years now, people often ask, “What’s your secret?” And, for sure it is our daily choice to place God right in the center of our life. Our marriage verse is 1 John 4:19: We love because He (God) first loved us.
And after writing 50+ books, we have shared A LOT about what God has taught us on how to follow Jesus to create a love to look forward to living and a leaving a legacy of love in your family and sphere of influence– but one secret to success in both personal and professional life we have not shared until now is our “Marriage Meet Up” plan and weekly strategy sheets.
One very vital and wise choice we made years ago as newlyweds was to have a “Monday Morning Marriage Meeting“. We would head out for a short exercise workout, meet for breakfast then pray and talk about EVERYTHING so God could help us pull together, in the same direction, rather pull apart!
And now we want to share these positive, pro-active interactive Marriage Meet Ups (His and Hers) journals with YOU!
Here is the back cover copy so you can see how you and your spouse, and EVERY couple can be encouraged, equipped, enriched and unified with the Marriage Meet Ups planner:
You are a unique couple and you deserve to have a unique plan for your journey together. The quality of your marriage is determined by the decisions you make together. Many couples make these choices a bit haphazardly hoping everything turns out well, but they wish there was a more structured way to figure things out and build a bright future TOGETHER. Marriage Meetups provides a plan you can follow to intentionally design the type of marriage, family and life you want as a couple. It is dynamic, deliberate and adjustable because it is your plan for your relationship.
This collection of strategy sheets will guide you to …
- Gain insight into how your spouse likes to live
- Have productive conversations that minimize conflict
- Make decisions together that maximize emotional, spiritual and physical connection
- Improved conversations about money and financial choices
- Boost productivity so you get more done at work, home, or ministry
- Delegate well so things do not fall through the cracks of a busy life
- Nurture your relationship and create more time for the happy-side of marriage, romance, and intimacy
- Get and stay on the same page so you can move forward TOGETHER in unity
- Strengthen your spiritual life together and draw you closer to God and your partner
