Read and Make a Change

March 8, 2012

in the generous life

Yesterday I talked about facing and dealing with problems. One of the really, really, really easy ways of beginning to deal with a problem is to get educated (really). Much of what we struggle with can be dealt with if we could understand the problem better or if we had a couple of ideas to try. Reading blogs and books are a great place to start (one of the reasons I link to books and online resources).

On my blog site (down a ways in the right column) is a list of blogs that I recommend and I’m developing a Marriage Book Library. These are books that I think contain very solid material. If you have marriage books to recommend, I encourage you to click on the Library link and add your thoughts as a comment.

I just added the The Love Dare (aff link) to my Marriage Book Library. I watched the movie Fireproof. It’s good, but I think The Love Dare book (the heart of the movie) is an incredible resource. It has 40 days of challenges to grow your marriage. I think it would be great to take one challenge a week and work it into your heart and into your life. Doing that would take you through most of a year and make significant changes in your marriage relationship. (If you are into a daily devotional, there is also The Love Dare Day by Day: A Year of Devotions for Couples (aff link) – 365 marital encouragements, reminders, and action points.)

The important thing is to open your mind to possibilities and options.  You don’t have to stay in a mess.  You can make a change.

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world (or your marriage).  Nelson Mandela (parenthesis mine)


Very nice post from I Love Being Happily MarriedLittle Things In Marriage That Make a Big Difference…  For those of us who are romance challenged this is very instructional.


Gina (of Winning at Romance) has written a great post about Overcoming Feeling Angry or Powerless in Your Marriage

Thank you Lori for including the link to our ILBHM post “Little Things In Marriage That Make a Big Difference…”

Love the adaptation of the Nelson Mandela quote and how it applies to marriage.

I had not had the opportunity to visit your site before and I’ve just signed up for your daily reminders to grow our marriage :-)

Looking forward to the next one!

Thanks again for the link and wishing you the absolute best!
