This February, I’ll be hosting a 4-week series here on the blog: How To Maintain Your High Maintenance Marriage.
This is a topic that I’m so passionate about. It’s no secret here that Jon and I have had a difficult marriage, and we work incredibly hard to make things work, to serve each other, and to glorify God in our covenant with one another.
But we’ve had our screaming matches. We’ve gone to bed angry. We’ve spent two full years on a couch across from a licensed marriage and family therapist.
It’s hard. And that is worth acknowledging.
Because I think many of you may be in the same boat.
Jon and I have talked about this series, and we are both really excited that it’s happening. There are certain things that we’ve discovered are absolutely essential for keeping our marriage in a healthy place. Every Monday in February, I’ll be posting on one of those topics. And I won’t be alone! Emily from Primitive Roads, Monica from Elevate Ideas, and Kelly from Exceptionalistic will all be writing on the very same topics! Each week you’ll have a chance to hear from them as well, and I’ll be sure to link to their posts.
Here’s what we’ll be talking about each week:
Week 1 (Feb. 4): CommunicationWeek 2 (Feb. 11): ServiceWeek 3 (Feb. 18): LaughterWeek 4 (Feb. 25): Sex
Some of these topics might seem pretty general, but I promise the posts will not be. General isn’t helpful. So we’ll be diving in deep, sharing stories, talking honestly, and growing together.
I’m excited and a little terrified to share these things with you. But some of them have flat out saved our marriage, and I know someone out there needs to hear them too. I so hope you’ll join us! We kick off next Monday!
What do you think? Is this something you’re looking forward to? What would you love to see covered here?
