Think and Grow

November 29, 2011

in the generous life

I’ve taken the time to check out the different blogs nominated for Stu Gray’s Top 10 Marriage Blogs of 2011 (from Stupendous Marriage).

There’s one that really stood out to me and I just wanted to point it out (for those of you who don’t have time to go through all 48 blogs).  The Assume Love blog is written by a gal who struggled in her marriage and was then widowed.  Later remarrying, she created this blog and I think she has some profound insights to share.  I particularly liked her recent post What if You Knew It Would Never Happen Again?

One of the best things we can do for our marriage is to be challenged by others to think and grow.  Blogs are a convenient way to expose yourself to ideas that will help you build your marriage.

Don’t just read the easy stuff. You may be entertained by it, but you will never grow from it.  Jim Rohn

I ran across the Assume Love blog recently because of the top-blogs contest. I love the idea behind her blog and I’m anxious to check her blog out. Congratulations to you, too, for being nominated.

Lori, you are most generous and kind. I hope we will both find ourselves on the Top Ten list tomorrow. Many thanks to Ann and to the anonymous but delightful author of 365 Acts of Love for your kind words, too.
