in the generous life

From The Generous Wife archive:

Set up a “reading date.” Take turns reading things that you find interesting to each other. It might be a favorite scripture or quote. Perhaps share a passage from a favorite novel or a bit from a news article. Share why it is special or of interest to you and share your thoughts about it. (Paul and I sometimes do this with movie dates as well. We share what part of the movie stood out to us and about anything that seemed profound or had truth in it.)

The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches, but to reveal to him his own.  Benjamin Disraeli

This is a great way to engage in deeper discussions, too, beyond that of family logistics and junior’s loose tooth. I have been desiring deeper conversation with my hubby on something other than the usual family stuff, but politics and religion and relationship issues can get too deep and even stressful to discuss. I wanted something more relaxing and engaging so our talks are enjoyable. I chose fencing! Hubby loves to fence. I do, too, but have been on hiatus for the last 7 years with pregnancies and babies. Now that we’re done having children, I have taken up the sword again, but am rusty and wanting a better understanding of the sport. So, I asked hubby to recommend books. He has, I’ll read them and we can discuss.
