Make a 21 Days Book

April 9, 2012

in the generous life

Awhile back I posted an idea that I swiped from my husband (Go for 21!). The gist of the challenge  ~ 

For the next twenty-one days, write down three good things about your husband and or your marriage. 

I saw on the comments that one gal and her husband did this together and were able to do 21 days straight (yeah Valerie and husband!).

(I confess I started it and about a week later I forgot about it. But there is no time limit (girl’s rules) so I’ll just pick up today where I left off.)

Valerie also suggested a creative idea. 

 The other thing I did was to keep them all (his to me & mine to him) as we did them via text.  I hope to compile them and do some scrapbook pages, maybe a mini book or something and give it [to him] as a reminder.

I love it!

Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.  Margaret Cousins

A lovely perspective ~ Do You Embrace Being Called Your Husband’s Wife? by Julie (of Intimacy in Marriage)


Jenny (of Journey to Surrender) has written an encouraging article about caring for the stressed care giver ~ A Haven in Your Home   I really identified with what she wrote because my husband and I cared for his mom for 9 months.

Just wanted to say that I loved the 21 Days challenge. I actually printed out a his and hers version with numbers down the side for each day, and then taped them on either side of our big bathroom mirror. Every day we each fill in our side with what we love about our marriage or spouse, and then we both get to read the comments throughout the day and discuss them in bed…”I didn’t know THAT was so meaningful to you!” :) It’s been fun, and keeps me thinking about my husband while I’m brushing my teeth or putting on makeup.

Thank you and God bless!

@Bethany Bull: What a great idea!! I am thinking of doing this and rolling it out on my next date night. (My husband and I alternate the planning and this week is his week.).
